Biopharma Institute Reviews

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is a set of internationally recognized ethical and scientific quality requirements for designing, conducting, recording and reporting clinical trials. Compliance with GCP principles is required by regulatory authorities in many countries for the authorization of clinical trials and the acceptance of their data. The International Council for Harmonization's guideline E6, often referred to as ICH GCP, is the international standard specification for Good Clinical Practice.

This module introduces GCP and sets it in the context of typical collaborative work in clinical research. We discuss the role and goals of the International Council for Harmonization and the principles of GCP. We describe the roles of members of a team working on a clinical trial. We set out the documentation that must be created and maintained. We specify the responsibilities of trial sponsors, clinical investigators and monitors. We explain the rationale and execution of the informed consent process, and discuss issues that arise in practice.

The module is fully up to date with Revision 2 of ICH GCP.

This training meets the minimum criteria for ICH GCP investigator site personnel training identified by TransCelerate BioPharma, Inc. 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 12-month period. A certificate of completion is immediately accessible in PDF format after satisfying the requirements.

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 promptly launched and made available to the student upon course completion. Certificates are issued in an encrypted PDF format, and include a watermark, unique validation code, and QR verification barcode.

Once all training requirements have been satisfied the achievement can be verified from our website using the unique certificate ID or QR barcode located on the certificate. For professional certification programs, a digital badge is additionally issued to verify training and document the achievement. Digital badges can be displayed on social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Badgr.

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.
