In Alberta several types of training are offered free, and for a fee:
The Weiser course is for Clinical Research Coordinators beginning in the research profession. It is offered by Northern Alberta Clinical Trials and Research Centre (NACTRC) which is located in Edmonton and is a 2 day course. TCPS2 is free online training through Health Canada.
CITI-Canada is an online clinical research training program that incorporates International Conference on Harmonization - Good Clinical Practice, Tri-Council Policy Statement Edition 2, and Health Canada guidelines. CITI-Canada is developed by CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) and N2 (Network of Networks). In order to take CITI training for free, you need to be affiliated with an institution (I.E. U of A, U of C, AHS or Alberta Innovates). Otherwise, there is a cost for independent learners.
SOCRA/ACRP are both professional designations which you need 2 years experience to apply for.
