STRONGSVILLE, OH--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - IMARC, a leading clinical research organization, is excited to announce a new series of online training courses to prepare professionals and their teams for clinical research compliance.

IMARC University's course offerings include role-based training for monitors and research coordinators, course packages and individual courses that cover a range of regulatory issues.

These courses are designed to make training more affordable and accessible, IMARC CEO Sandra Maddock said.

"IMARC is already known for its robust training programs and a stellar track record of clinical research compliance," Maddock said. "In our 16 years of operation, we've never had a single FDA warning letter issued to any of our sites. Clearly, we're doing something right. By making that knowledge available to everyone in the industry through our online training courses, we hope to raise the bar for clinical research teams everywhere."

Individuals or teams can take the courses at their own pace. They can choose whether they want intensive training to prepare them for a particular role or select courses to bring them up to speed on specific topics, such as good clinical practice (GCP) requirements, human subjects protection or the federal regulations.

IMARC University's courses have been developed by IMARC's own staff of clinical research professionals, so they incorporate a variety of real-life experiences from individuals with diverse backgrounds.

They train professionals to think critically so they can respond with confidence to questions from research coordinators, monitors, or other project team members.

IMARC University is now enrolling clinical research professionals or those interested in transitioning into the field of medical device or pharmaceutical research.

Regardless of where you are in your career, these courses will help you achieve the next level of proficiency.
