 Certificate vs. Certification
The Regulatory Affairs Certificate Program is a series of online courses designed to give you knowledge in specific healthcare product areas including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or a combined certificate in both. Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) is a professional credential recognizing you have proficiency in and a level of comprehension of regulatory knowledge in healthcare product areas.
Once earned, you receive a certificate that does not have ongoing maintenance or renewal requirements. Once earned, the RAC credential is maintained by recertifying every three years by acquiring 36-credits from a regulatory-oriented activity.
This regulatory affairs certificate is a stand-alone document signifying successful completion of the courses. The RAC credential is a professional certification earned by passing an exam, administrated by an accredited third-party testing provider.
