Continuing Involvement (CI) is another area in which a candidate for Maintenance can earn points toward the stated Maintenance requirements. These are activities other than participating in a continuing education event. Continuing Involvement is not required to maintain a CCRA, CCRC, or ACRP-CP certification. Continuing Involvement activities are always related to your role in clinical research and sometimes required as part of one’s position.
The following chart lists activities that are currently awarded Continuing Involvement Points for Maintenance purposes. CI activities must be listed online through the “My CCRA/CCRC/CPI/ACRP-CP” link located under ‘My Profile’.
Other activities may be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Academy Board. Presentations and articles must be in clinical research-related topics in order to be considered for points.
