After the great success of the eBook, has also created and launched a training course that introduces those interested in the world of Clinical Research to the fascinating profession of the CRA. The course is called "Missione CRA" (CRA Mission) and was "built" on the basis of the Ministerial Decree 15.11.2011, the one that restricts the access to this profession and that requests, among other requirements, a 40-hour training course.

Therefore, the aim of the course “Missione CRA” is:
1. To better guide the neophyte of Clinical Research, in order to clarify the duties of the CRA and the laws regulating the Clinical Research field;

2. To give a general overview on the professional roles involved in Clinical Research;

3. To provide a step forward along the path of those wishing to become CRAs with a training certificate, that will attest your participation in a 40-hour training course, in compliance with the D.M. 15.11.2011 (point b, Article 4 of the Decree).

For those interested in the “Missione CRA” training courses, further details (Summer Camp dates included) can be found on the institutional website
