Continuing Education (CE) Credits
Most SBIA Events currently allow for these types of Continuing Education Credits:
- Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) – FDA SBIA events are generally eligible for Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) professional development credits.
- Society of Clinical Research Associates (SOCRA) – SOCRA accepts documentation of candidate participation in SBIA continuing education programs for re-certification if the program is applicable to clinical research regulations, operations or management, or to the candidate’s clinical research therapeutic area.
- Society of Quality Assurance (SQA) – SBIA events have been pre-approved by SQA as eligible for 1 non-GCP or non-GLP units for every 1 hour of instructional time towards a participant’s Registered Quality Assurance Professional (RQAP) re-registration.
- Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) – ACRP provides research-specific continuing education for the completion of this activity. Contact hours are provided at 1 point/hour for at least 45-60 minutes of qualified material.
- Continuing Medical Education for Pharmacists, Physicians, and Nurses – CEs are offered at select events where FDA anticipates a high number of medical professions. CME availability cannot be advertised until it is formally approved, which may be one month or less before the event.
- Participants must have attended the event to receive the certificate of attendance which is only available during the two-week period post-event. CE credits can NOT be claimed for watching the event recordings.
- Attendees will receive an email within 24 hours post-event, with a link to the event evaluation and certificate. The email will be titled, “Thank You: [Event Name]” and is sent from “Do_Not_Reply email@example.com.”
- Attendees must complete the evaluation to receive their auto-generated certificate of attendance.
- Be very mindful of completing the evaluation within the stated timeline. SBIA cannot provide certificates of attendance once the submission deadline has expired.

- SBIA does not maintain records or qualify your attendance for submission purposes.
- Retain your certificate of attendance for your records.
- Please refer to your professional organization’s guidance on submission of CEs.
- Not all events are eligible for continuing education for pharmacists, physicians, and nurses. Please check the event page at www.fda.gov/cdersbia to determine if the event is eligible
- Post-event, FDA will send an e-mail with a link to the course evaluation required for CE. The email will also contain the necessary CE codes and directions.
