Overview of the Training Course
DATIA's Medical Review Officer (MRO) Assistant course delivers comprehensive training on industry best practices, provides helpful hints for successful implementation, and helps MRO Assistants to achieve success. This online, self-paced course is designed for those who actively assist MROs and those who have regular contact with donors, employers, and program administrators. This program will help to ensure that MRO Assistant duties are performed in a professional and consistent manner, maintaining confidentiality for the donor, and ensuring security and integrity in the process. This course is a prerequisite for the Medical Review Officer Certification Council (MROCC) MRO Assistant certification and exam.
The objective of this course is to provide instruction and resource material that enables the MRO assistant to: fully understand the role of the MRO and the MRO assistant in the drug testing process; define issues that arise during the medical review process and the best courses of action to tackle these issues; provide services meeting standards of professionalism, accountability, and ethical behavior; and implement practical application of industry standards and procedures.
After successful completion of DATIA’s MRO Assistant Training Course, attendees are eligible to apply for MRO Assistant Certification through the MROCC (separate registration and fee applies). This three-year certification – awarded upon successful completion and passing of the MROCC MRO-A online examination -- acknowledges competency in those practical skills the MRO Assistant applies in fulfilling his or her professional responsibilities within the workplace drug testing arena. Information can be found at https://www.mrocc.org/get_certified.cfm.
Attendees need not have previous knowledge of the collection and drug testing processes before enrolling in the course.
