Hear from our graduates



I recently completed the VIARES Clinical Research Associate (CRA) training course and passed both VIARES and ACRP-ELKA certificate. I found the course is informative, covers a wide range of important topics, from drug development, CRA roles,


study visits and close-out, and data management. Thank you for the opportunity to learn and looking forward to embarking on this clinical research journey.




I found the VIARES Study Start Up Specialist program extremely informative and educational. Not only has my understanding of study start up developed exponentially, but it has also made me feel so much more confident in my work. I’d highly


recommend the program to anyone who wishes to learn more about study start up!
