GCP Training and Certification for Investigators and Study Site Personnel

The Academy is able to provide a 1-day training  course for investigator site staff on an in-house or sponsored basis. We are also able to provide short presentations or half-day courses. The full day course provides training and optional examination for the Certificate in Study Site GCP. PC-based training is also available this enables sponsors to train all of their study site personnel without the need to set up a formal course.

The full 1-day course aims to provide information on the investigator's  most important GCP responsibilities. It will provide awareness of the following topics

Sample programme

PC based training modules for investigators and site personnel

The Academy, in conjunction with its sister company Canary Ltd, has developed a four-part PC based training programme for investigators. The programme covers the most important GCP responsibilities of study site personnel.

Training can be undertaken at a place, pace and time to suit the individual. It is an ideal introduction to GCP for trial staff and for those unable to attend a formal course.

The four modules are provided on CD for loading on to a PC. A notes manual is provided. The first three parts are separate 12 minute presentations delivered using PowerPoint shows, written and narrated by Professor David Hutchinson.
Part1: GCP fundamentals -- what it is, who it affects, ICH GCP basics and the importance of having and following SOPs
Part 2: GCP responsibilities, site suitability and knowledge, ethics and consent of subjects
Part 3: data collection,  safety reporting and trial documentation

Part 4 is an interactive quiz that tests GCP knowledge. This can linked to an email address for review of test scores and certification by the Academy.
