Celso Baldivieso, QA Specialist at CVPath Institute recently earned the Registered Quality Assurance Professional in Good Laboratory Practices (RQAP-GLP). He joins 613 other RQAP-GLP credentialed quality assurance professionals around the globe.
The RQAP program was established to set a high-quality standard in the QA industry, provide personal professional growth and achievement, and demonstrate an individual’s knowledge of regulations/guidance’s and how they are applied. The RQAP credential is a recognized standard of experience and knowledge throughout the QA industry, in the US and around the world.
The RQAP-GLP credential is also a way for employers to recognize and promote qualified quality assurance professionals. To become an RQAP Registrant, Mr. Baldivieso met requirements in two areas:
• Education and Experience: Baccalaureate degree or higher from a university plus two years of full-time QA experience in GLP or four years of full-time QA experience in GLP without a baccalaureate degree
• Knowledge: Passed the RQAP-GLP examination
SQA regularly conducts industry research to validate the content of the examination and works with a psychometrician at Professional Testing, Inc. to develop and pilot test exam questions, establish appropriate passing scores, and provide statistical analysis on the exam questions so that the exam is always up-to-date and statistically valid.
The 3.5-hour RQAP exam is offered twice each year and includes 165 multiple-choice questions in GLP quality assurance content areas including compliance assessment (monitoring, inspecting, and auditing), compliance management (scheduling, reporting/record keeping, and documenting), and applied expertise (evaluating and advising).
