RAC US Workshop
One of the more valuable of our NCRAF membership benefits is the annual US RAC workshop, held every summer through fall in preparation for the November RAC exams. NCRAF has the support of very knowledgeable speakers who donate their time each year to share their experience and bring the regulations to life. This workshop is ideal for those who would like to broaden their understanding of FDA regulations, earn CEU's for the RAC certification currently held, or prepare for taking the RAC.
US RAC Workshop Dates & Location
Sessions will be held Tuesday evenings, 6-8 pm at DCRI (Duke Clinical Research Institute, Lower Level conference room) beginning the first Tuesday in June and continuing through the end of September. See each years' specific workshop announcement or NCRAF's event calendar.
Workshop sessions are recorded. For most sessions, both slides and audio recordings from the sessions are available to all registered workshop participants.
Registration & Fees
Any NCRAF Member may register for the workshop, but space is limited, so register early to ensure you have a space. There is a workshop fee of $75 to cover the cost of food and lecture materials.
The cost of the RAC exam (~$500; administered by RAPS) is not included in the study group fee. Please see the RAPS Web site (www.raps.org) for registration information, including exam costs and locations.
If you are planning to take the RAC exam, purchase of the current edition of Fundamentals of US Regulatory Affairs (published by RAPS) is highly recommended. A group order for the book will be placed through the workshop, which will offer a significant discount to workshop participants. Please email the coordinators at RAC_US@ncraf.org and indicate that you wish to join in the group purchase.
If you have no immediate plans to take the exam, the suggested readings and course materials will supply sufficient background for the group discussions.
