  1. Priya Bhasin

    Was able to download all tutorials on their app and learn offline. Also could take my quizzes on the go. Since i am already working and travel a lot in my role as a CRA, this was very useful.

  2. Ann Kaplan

    Extremely detailed program covering all aspects of clinical research. I am a Dentist by profession and knew nothing about this field. The program started with the very basics and built up the concepts gradually. Did not feel overwhelmed at any time. Learning portal was well organized. Course content was clear and concise. Audio Tutorials are great. Access to Oracle Siebel Clinical software was provided. Extremely satisfied!

  3. Mike Dallas

    Provided 24×7 access to Oracle Siebel Clinical for practice as promised. Appreciate it!

  4. Babu Nema

    Best part was they provided access to Oracle Siebel Clinical which is a Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) which is being used in most CROs today. So i didn’t only learn theory, i also did the practical aspects of managing clinical research elements in the software. Recommend this course!
