ACDM Level Three Accredited Training Program - Clinical Data Management - Project Leadership Skills - 21st-22nd September 2016


Course Overview - Why should you attend?

Regulators are increasingly requesting evidence of competence. Experience alone does not provide evidence of competence. The ACDM, in partnership with the International Academy of Clinical Research, has developed a series of training programs supported by comprehensive course work and interactive sessions, providing independently recognized, competence-based accreditation to support the continued professional development of staff involved in the management of clinical trial data.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a way for professionals to demonstrate that they continue to learn and develop throughout their careers, to keep their skills and knowledge up to date and are able to work competently.

CPD points are related to the notional learning hours in taking a course and include any learning hours spent on pre-course work and any post-course work. The latter includes collecting the learning evidence on the job and taking part in the assessment process.

Each of the ACDM’s courses has been assigned a number of CPD points based on the time involved in participating in the course and in completing assigned pre- and post-course work.

The courses are quality assured by bodies regulated by Ofqual (Office for Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) and the levels are recognized within the ISCED framework (International Standard of Education) framework produced by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).

The Level Three Accredited Training Program in Clinical Data Management is aimed at further developing essential project management and leadership skills. The training courses are highly interactive and supported by comprehensive materials and evaluated course work.
