What is the difference between the Foundational GCP training and GCP Refresher training?
The Foundational GCP training is a course on all chapters of the ICH-GCP guideline E6. We will focus on the ethical aspects of performing clinical trials outlining the responsibilities of all stakeholders. Through extensive theory and interactive moments, including real-life situations, we will get you acquainted with the ins and outs of Good Clinical Practice.
The GCP Refresher training is designed for people already working in a GCP environment but needs an update on this topic. During this course, we provide examples of day-to-day situations and guide you to successful solutions to these problems.
If needed you can always request training for your company or team, as we will tailor the training according to your needs.
What is the difference between the Junior and Senior CRA courses?
The Junior CRA course is designed for starters in the business; it covers the basic guidelines and regulations followed by an overview of the duties of a monitor in the clinical operation processes. Through theory and workshops, we start with site selection, covering pre-study, initiation, monitoring and closure tasks of a CRA.
The Senior CRA course focuses on more advanced tasks such as protocol and informed consent review, site management, recruitment issues and communication skills. It is designed for CRAs that want to boost their career and have already some experience in the field.
How do I access the online grading test for my course?

- Click “Virtual Campus” in the top left-hand corner of the website (header)
- Click the button “Enter the Virtual Campus”
- Then you should see your course on the dashboard menu of the Virtual Campus

Do we receive a certificate at the end of the course?
Everyone who attends a course receives the Certificate of Attendance.
In addition to this, we offer a Certificate of Achievement for a growing selection of our courses. Participants receive these certificates after completing their test and achieving a test score of at least 70%. Participants are allowed to consult their course notes and the extensive training material provided.
In the case of an online grading test, your digital certificate will be sent by email from the ECCRT Virtual Campus once you’ve completed your comprehension test.
All certificates are globally recognised.
How large are the course groups?
For our public courses, groups generally consist of 5 up to 15 participants. Numbers may vary depending on the course type, depending on the course format (online or face-to-face).

Any full-day face-to-face sessions have two coffee breaks and lunch. If you would have specific dietary questions, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, before the training session.
