Redtree People, ICR launch learning service
Friday, November 18, 2011
Redtree People and the Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) are to provide tailored training and education programs to the growing community of independent freelance clinical research professionals worldwide.
As M&A consolidation activity continues across pharma and CRO organizations, the knock on displacement of labor has accelerated the growing trend into freelance independent working amongst clinical research professionals worldwide. Yet despite the increase in the relative supply and availability of resource, there remains a real need to access experienced and accredited skills in all geographies.
In response to this need, Redtree People is collaborating with the Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) to provide a program of tailored learning and education that will serve clinical research job candidates with an internationally recognized standard of accreditation and certification. As a result, sponsor hiring organisations will be assured of a ‘gold’ training standard from clinical research professionals’ carrying this benchmark as a guarantee of the highest levels of skills and operational excellence.
The Redtree People/ICR tailored program which includes 3 training packages around a core engagement bundle will provide industry learning and skills training, coupled with practical advice around how to transition into and prosper as a freelance clinical research professional.
Together with the ICR, Redtree are offering an educational platform for the clinical research professional community to extend their continuous professional development (CPD) from training in business, to maintaining clinical research regulatory awareness to accreditation via the ICR global GCP examination.
