Career Transition- CRA certifications do they help?

Postby R.K » Fri Feb 17, 2012 1:37 pm

I have MS in microbio and lot of experience in toxicology including computational tox.

I want to broaden my horizons. I am very interested in research...One of my friends suggested that I get a CRA certification, as it would open doors to new opportunites.

Where do I go to get a CRA certification? Are there lot of opportunites available with a CRA certification? It seems like what CRAs do is quite easy...but, I also understand that may jobs (back to David's article - about Pinpointing, require CRA certification).

Any thoughts?
