Biopharma Institute ReviewsDesigning and conducting a clinical trial should be done with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and quality in mind to ensure the reliability of trial results as well as to follow requirements of regulatory authorities. Organizations usually understand the necessity of following ICH E6(R2) to ensure GCP; however, there is frequently a gap in training internal teams, contractors, CROs, and sites on ISO 14155:2020 GCP for medical devices. Following the standard is a key part of building globally recognized GCP into the full life cycle of the medical device clinical trial and can complement the current GCP training. This course covers an overview of the ISO 14155:2020 standard for medical device GCP. Use with a copy of your organization's standard or purchase a copy from Content includes an Overview of the Standard, Clinical Investigation Planning, Sponsor Responsibilities, Responsibilities of the Investigator, Clinical Investigation Conduct, and Suspension, Termination, and Close-out of Clinical Investigation.

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.
