Continuing Education (CE) Credits

What continuing education credits are available for FDA CDER’s Small Business and Industry Assistance (SBIA) events?

 
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 Quality Assurance (SQA) – SBIA events have been pre-approved by SQA as eligible for 0.25 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.
