Principal Investigator Training
CCRPS offers online principal investigator training to physicians and doctorate-level degree holders interested in beginning a career as a PI. The principal investigator training course is a 1-on-1 course designed to assist in obtaining the knowledge needed for initial PI roles. Because US PI certification requires at least 6 months of experience as a principal investigator, physicians in our online principal investigator training program seek this course to assist in their preliminary positions as a PI prior to the national PI certification exam.
Our 60 hour principal investigator training course is designed to be one of the highest-density courses in the industry for principal investigators. Obtaining 60 hours of training on a 1-to-1 basis allows for doctorate-level degree holders to gain fundamental skills to secure a position as a principal investigator. This also ensures the basis of the online course to be beyond that of broad concepts, and tailors to each student’s needs in applying the concepts.
CCRPS offers online, self-paced modules for principal investigators because we understand the demand of current jobs, research internships, board-certification exams, and family that can impact learning. While these modules are self-paced, all principal investigators are monitored daily by our Senior PI instructor to ensure adequate speed and retention.
