Biopharma Institute Reviews

This GCP Training: ICH E6(R2) course covers key components of the GCP requirements for clinical trials, found in ICH E6(R2), and relates to the roles and responsibilities of the investigator, sponsor, and other stakeholders. The course covers an introduction to GCP; reviews major regulatory agencies in the United States, European Union, and Japan; describes essential documentation methods; and moves on to cover good documentation practices (GDocP), including ALCOA-C.

Recommended for those new to working with GCP such as clinical research professionals who are in need of a more comprehensive GCP training to better understand the guidelines and to continue growing their career working on clinical trials.

This ICH E6 (R2) 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.

Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire course and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment within a 6-month period, or a 12-month period for professional certification programs. A certificate of completion is immediately accessible in PDF format after satisfying the requirements.

Biopharma Institute certificates and digital badges include the date of completion, but do not have an expiration date. However, compliance training is typically considered valid for a period of 3 years. Many organizations suggest that compliance training should be refreshed at least every three years to stay up to date with regulations, standards, guidelines, and to reinforce the importance of maintaining compliance. The validity period for employee compliance training would be determined by those responsible for managing quality assurance.

Biopharma Institute's online training courses include immediate access after enrollment. Username, password, and instructions are emailed to the student directly following online enrollment into the program. Course takers may attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed, to achieve a passing score. The certificate of completion is instantaneously launched and made available to the student in a PDF format upon completion.

Once all training requirements have been satisfied the achievement can be verified from our website using the unique ID code found on the certificate. Professional certification programs issue a digital badge to verify training and document the achievement. These digital badges can be displayed on social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Badgr.
