“Continuing education and professional development are critical to RA professionals,” says Nikki Willett, Pilgrim’s vice president of marketing and regulatory affairs. “Whether just entering the field or seasoned industry veterans, they need to keep up-to-date with regulatory policies and procedures, and understand the changes, issues or new trends affecting their products and market. Professional development programs that offer RAC credits, including Pilgrim’s Industry in Session, help RA professionals grow their industry knowledge and skills while managing their career development.”

With sufficient knowledge and experience, those RA professionals can test and earn the highly regarded RAC certification, the only certification specifically for regulatory professionals in the healthcare product sector.
