Course Description

To earn a Certara Certification as a NCA Analyst using Phoenix WinNonlin versions 8.1 and 8.2, candidates need to earn a passing score in the exam.  The exam validates proficiency and competence with non-compartmental (NCA) pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis using Phoenix WinNonlin, with either version 8.1 or 8.2. A certified NCA analyst has the ability to process data, perform exploratory data analysis, calculate NCA parameters, and report results for typical PK study designs in pre-clinical and clinical trials.

This exam is applicable to two versions of Phoenix, because no new features that affect NCA were introduced in version 8.2.

Location:  This is an online accreditation. The exam can be taken from anywhere at any time within 3 years of purchase.

Software:  There is no requirement to have the Phoenix WinNonlin™ software installed.  The exam has interactive questions embedded that simulate the software.  Because Phoenix 8.1 and 8.2 have very few differences, this exam covers both versions.

Grading: To successfully earn the NCA Analyst certification, a minimum passing score of 75% must be achieved upon completion of a rigorous online accreditation exam. Each registration includes 2 attempts at passing the test. The exam tests 80-90 questions that cover theoretical knowledge of NCA analysis on different types of study designs, and a practical section that evaluates software proficiency by performing tests related to NCA analysis, data processing, and reporting. 

Time Limit:  There is a time limit of 3 hours to complete the exam.  The clock starts counting when the user clicks on 'Start Exam'.

Exam Content:   Successful candidates should have an understanding of fundamentals of Pharmacokinetics, NCA theory, typical study designs that are often analyzed with NCA,  and hands-on experience with Phoenix WinNonlin.  Certification topics include:

There should be a better system of letting you know when you can only have a certain amount of clicks. It's difficult to know when I can and can't click without listening to the voice prompt.

The content of the exam was appropriate. However, in Part 2 of the exam, using shortcut icons which would result in the same requested function resulted in an incorrect answer. It would be nice if it is stated that quick access toolbar answers will not be counted as correct.
