January-February 2025 Cost - $550 (Academia $275, Africa/India $150) Certification Course Description In this course you will learn and get certified on the theory and application of non-compartmental analysis (NCA).  NCA is used to characterize the kinetics of a compound without assuming a specific compartmental model.   You will learn NCA methodology, how to perform NCA using Phoenix WinNonlin software, and how to interpret resulting pharmacokinetic parameters.   This course is a comprehensive review of noncompartmental analysis of pharmacokinetic data and will cover the basics through the most complex areas of noncompartmental analysis.  Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive an e-badge as an NCA Analyst using Phoenix WinNonlin.  This certification is valid for 3 years. Pricing $550 (Academia $275, Africa/India $150) Users requesting an Academic membership will only be accepted with proof of academic status by using an active academic email address. Users from Africa/India will need to provide Certara University with a copy of their government issued proof of residency.  If an email address fails to meet that standard, the individual will be notified and will not be given access to the requested membership type. Course Format, Language and Dates This course format is a ‘Live on-line classroom’ which means that the course is delivered virtually by an expert Phoenix instructor at pre-specified times.  This will provide the benefit of the classroom setting, with real-time interaction with the instructor but without the travel.  Although live attending is encouraged, recordings of the sessions are available to participants during the length of the course.  This course will be delivered in English. Lecture/Demo Sessions Live Zoom sessions will occur in January and February, 2025.  There will be six two-hour lecture/demo sessions.  Lecture/Demo sessions are on Tuesdays at 10 AM New York (GMT-4), starting January 7 and finishing on February 11.  We will record sessions and post the recordings for those who are unable to attend live.  You will have access to the recordings for 3 months following the last session of the course. Self-Paced Exercises There are five self-paced exercises in the course that guide you through exploratory data analysis, data preparation, and noncompartmental data analysis.  You do not need to run Phoenix to do the self-paced exercises, because everything is contained in the module.  Each practice exercise contains a quiz that you must pass with at least a 60% score, although you can repeat each quiz as many times as you need to pass it.  Hands-on Exercise Sessions There are also five weekly "Hands-on Exercise" Zoom sessions that give you the opportunity to carry out the same analysis as in that week's "Self-Paced Exercise", working collectively in Phoenix.  You will be divided into small groups, and will work together on the exercise.  At least one in each group will need to have Phoenix running on their computer and have an active WinNonlin license. Hands On Exercise Session Option A is offered at times most convenient for participants in the Americas, Europe, and Africa.  They are on Fridays at 11 AM New York (GMT-4).  Hands On Exercise Session Option B is offered at times most convenient for participants in Asia/Pacific.  They are on Tuesdays at 2 PM Brisbane (GMT+10).  (FYI, 2 PM Tuesday in Brisbane is late Monday evening in New York.) Certification This course includes a certification exam.  To obtain credit for this course and earn a Certara Certification as an NCA Analyst using Phoenix WinNonlin version 8.4, candidates need to earn a passing score on the exam.  The exam validates proficiency and competence with non-compartmental (NCA) pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis using Phoenix WinNonlin, with version 8.4. A certified NCA analyst can process data, perform exploratory data analysis, calculate NCA parameters, and report results for typical PK study designs in pre-clinical and clinical trials.   Exam Details Software:  There is no requirement to have the Phoenix WinNonlin™ software installed.  The exam has interactive questions embedded that simulate the software.  Those interactive questions are based on Phoenix WinNonlin 8.4. Grading: To successfully earn the NCA Analyst certification, a minimum passing score of 75% must be achieved on both parts of the 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:  The exam is divided into 2 parts. There is a total time limit of 1 hr and 45 min to complete part 1 and 75 minutes to complete part 2 of the exam.  The clock starts counting when the user clicks on 'Start Exam' in each part. Exam Content:   Successful candidates should understand fundamentals of Pharmacokinetics, NCA theory, typical study designs that are often analyzed with NCA, and hands-on experience with Phoenix WinNonlin.  Certification topics include: Basic Theory of PK and NCA Phoenix Interface Exploratory Data Analysis - Data Tools and Plots Performing NCA in Phoenix Processing NCA results Non-Parametric Superposition Study Designs Prerequisites and Time Commitment This course requires basic understanding of pharmacokinetics (recommended background: (103-OD) Fundamentals of Pharmacokinetics).  Students are expected to be able to commit 5 hours a week to attend sessions and complete assignments. Software Phoenix WinNonlinTM Participants are required to have a current license of Phoenix.  A training license for the duration of the course can be purchased for an additional fee by contacting us.
