Clinical Operations Courses
Part of a STAR Programme

You are a professional within clinical research; investigator, monitor or other staff; then you need to comply with the Good Clinical Practice guideline. This one-day course will give you the needed ICH-GCP training, required by the majority of European Regulators.

Our ICH-GCP training meets the Minimum Criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training identified by “TransCelerate BioPharma” as necessary to enable mutual recognition of GCP training among trial sponsors.

Without training on the International Council for Harmonisation Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) standards, or without experience in clinical research, professionals are not always aware of the legal regulations that govern clinical studies, including post-marketing trials. ICH-GCP is the guideline ruling all clinical research including its conduct, performance, monitoring and reporting of the results. This course focuses on the requirements of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) in clinical studies with pharmaceuticals. The complete and most recent version of the ICH-GCP is covered by this training, including the Addendum of 2016. All elements of the addendum, such as risk-based quality management and supervision will be presented. In addition, implementation of GCP requirements is explained and illustrated using examples from practice.

Furthermore, our ICH-GCP training meets the Minimum Criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training Identified by TransCelerate BioPharma, as requested for mutual recognition of GCP training among trial sponsors.

The course will allow professionals who are active in clinical research to fully understand the requirements and responsibilities of everyone involved in clinical research.

Interaction with trainer and trainees, sharing practices, experiences - The GCP course is crucial to my daily job. Any new feature, update, needs to be implemented as urgent as possible. The format of the course was very interactive and didactic.
