How we align to your individual needs:


All standard competencies have been translated into modules with clear objectives and learning outcomes.


The VIARES ACADEMY consists of eight basic modules for covering the key competencies for the CRA and CTA role. We can add specific modules on client request, i.e. any localized regulatory requirements, client specific SOPs, Therapeutic Area content, etc. VIARES can incorporate existing client’s training elements or design new modules on client request.


All modules are split into micro courses. As example, Module 3 is split into “Patient Safety and the Informed Consent Process” and “Clinical Monitoring and Adverse Events”. We can add specific micro courses to each module on client request.


We use our own LMS built on the Moodle platform, which is one of the most common platforms used by universities, therefore familiar to many of our participants. Clients can be provided with a branded LMS for better brand recognition.

All basic standard training is covered. We offer a pool of readily available CRAs and CTAs for placement, hence reducing sourcing time and cost. Only the cost for internal training remains with you. Your cost saving can be up to 60%.

Most of your training cost is outsourced and converted to variable cost.

Based on the growing pool of Academy graduates, we have a pool of candidates for placement. This reduces bench-time for the CRO, allowing for faster backlog conversion.

We provide CROs with qualified candidates.  Our candidates will have degrees in the life sciences, up to two years clinical research work experience, and industry aligned training in Europe and the US.
