About the Clinical Research Training (B) Foundation Program

In the CRT-B program, CRAs are equipped with a hands-on training curriculum covering their day-day job functions in all facets of clinical research.

During the modules, CRAs will be offered a detailed and thorough training curriculum that includes FDA/EU regulations, ICH/GCP, review of standard operating procedures (SOPs), industry best practices, and therapeutic area reviews.

Current Program Format

The training methodology follows uniquely matched hands-on criteria of adaptability, interactivity, and a
multi-directional reflection upon the performance of the participants.
At JCRC, we have developed a remarkably conducive learning platform for knowledge sharing and
training via our user friendly, technologically advanced platform. The conventional way of studying in a
physical campus and classroom has been demonstrated as not being ideal for every scenario. It is not
often the most efficient way of studying. At JCRC, we have a remarkably ideal setting for knowledge
sharing and training via our user friendly online tutoring portal (OTP). Comprehensive online training
courses in domains such as clinical development, pharmacovigilance, regulatory affairs, medical affairs
etc., can be accessed in OTP. Once enrolled, the participant will be introduced to the course description,
learning objectives as well as the course outline based on the participant’s career preference. As a
participant, you can interact online with tutors and network with fellow participants to discuss topics
using your login access over the duration of your enrollment. The tutors promptly answer all questions
related to your study in the OTP.
Towards the end of the course, each participant is provided placement assistance if required and as well
as varying degrees of career development support based on need. Each participant registered in the
CRT-B program is provided with a mentor who has experience in bringing new medical products to the
marketplace. The mentor can be contacted at any time via email or phone.

At JCRC, our seasoned tutors have mastered a personalized approach to learning by by developing comprehensive training programs that are industry specific and recommended by experts. Our quest for the absolute best learning experience coupled with a technology savvy mind-set has led us to the creation of the CRT course model by means of which students share information and interact in discussions with tutors and fellow participants. For all participants, their interactions are strictly career-focused and the support you get from your mentors and tutors are customized to meet that need.

All recommended reading materials and assignments are posted online in the online tutoring portal (OTP) during the duration of your enrollment.

**Your access to this portal is only limited to the duration of your enrolment.

You will be expected to invest time in preparing and participating in class activities, reading training material, taking part in online tasks conducted at JCRC, working on projects, and taking tests.

Although live classes to meet your needs are organized on weekends only, you will have access to the materials online throughout the duration of your learning. You are expected to ‘attend’ to your reading tasks and assignments by accessing the online tutoring portal multiple times a week. You are also expected to stick to any project submission deadlines, get involved actively in online discussions and take online tests as assigned.

We at JCRC recognize that theoretical understanding will not be enough, which is why for some courses, we deliver useful drills in important topics that you can utilize very often on your jobs. Training drills are a type of role play where you are presented with various “real-life” scenarios for practical application. These exercises are supervised by the tutors and are a prominent feature that lend an extra dimension to our online training courses.

Post-Program Opportunities

In addition to the training drills, JCRC also offers unique tutoring opportunities to interested well
performing students who are identified during the training course. This distinctive ‘learning by teaching’
method enables invited and interested students to tutor future participants for a specific time frame.
