Hear from our graduates



The VIARES CRA Academy is a great opportunity to build your clinical research skills. The program is well structured and provides knowledge on different aspects of clinical trials such as ICH-GCP guidelines, medicinal products, safety, and


ethical considerations. Really helpful was the constructive feedback. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is seeking a rewarding career in clinical research.




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.
