As a rookie CTM, it was extremely beneficial to receive oversight of a CTM’s role and responsibilities during all phases of a study. We learned many practical pro tips that I wouldn’t have known about without the CTM Training Course. The course helped to set me up with knowledge and good organizational habits from the start. Having had the opportunity to ask case-specific questions during the live training and Q&A sessions elevated my confidence in conducting my day-to-day tasks!! Thank you for a wonderful course!
