Take your clinical research career to the next level

Beyond elevating our customers’ operations, Forte is committed to holistically elevating and educating the industry. Achieving that goal starts with those who serve on the front lines of clinical research. To accomplish that, we’re working to build out a catalog of formalized clinical research certification opportunities.

Coverage Analysis Certification™ Workshop

A new industry standard in coverage analysis

We’ve partnered with industry leaders from Research Matrix to create a Coverage Analysis Certification™ program, tailored specifically to the needs of OnCore users. Research Matrix provides comprehensive training to streamline coverage analysis and study activation processes for multi-center trials across the country.

If you’re interested in furthering your knowledge on advanced coverage analysis principles, we invite you to attend an upcoming Certification Workshop.

Why attend a workshop?

  • Earn up to 16 hours of pre-approved Continuing Education Credit through SOCRA and ACRP
  • Work alongside top coverage analysts in the country
  • Learn from the best and stay at the forefront of the industry
  • Obtain an industry-recognized Certification in coverage analysis through a comprehensive program

Who should attend a workshop?

Our Coverage Analysis Certification™ Workshops are best suited for those who perform or manage coverage analysis, clinical research billing compliance stakeholders, or individuals with interest in OnCore financials and coverage analysis processes.

If you’re not familiar with OnCore’s financial functionality, there is an optional pre-workshop webinar to teach the basics of OnCore navigation and the Coverage Analysis Console. You can register for the webinar after signing up for a workshop. 

Upcoming Workshops

We don’t currently have any upcoming workshops scheduled. Certification workshops will be offered throughout the year in various locations. All workshops include the same content. The cost to attend at any location is $1,495 per person. We offer a group discount of 10% off for organizations that register three or more people for a workshop.
