Instructions for participants and general conditions

The content of this training was compiled by Dr. Andreas Grund based on his 18 years of experience in clinical trials and prepared by the GCP-Service team using its many years of practical experience. The training content serves as practical guide and clarifies ordinary issues and misunderstandings which have been developed during the recent years.

The online training consists of four modules, each lasting approx. 60 minutes:

  1. The declaration of Helsinki and the GCP guidelines
  2. Investigator responsibilities part 1
  3. Investigator responsibilities part 2 / Sponsor responsibilities / Audits
  4. Current legislations & regulations on clinical trials in Europe - Regulation (EU) No 536/2014 (Clinical Trials Regulation - CTR), GDPR, Directive 2001/83/EC

The modules are continuously updated to the most current legal regulations and trends (no liability assumed). Each module consists of a presentation of approx. 45 minutes followed by a multiple choice test which must be passed. The test consists of 15 questions generated randomly from a pool of 40 questions and takes approx. 15-20 minutes. 80% of the questions need to be answered correctly to pass. After each failed test, the attendees receive a new set of 15 random questions. Three test repeats are possible after which the attendee must start from the beginning. The individual modules can only be processed in the order of module 1-4. After completing all modules and tests, the attendees can download and print the training certificate independently. The certificate contains all topics required by the Ethics Committee and competent authorities to prove the qualification of clinical research staff according to ICH GCP.

All training modules within a training course must be completed within two months. If the two-month period has expired and the four questionnaires have not been answered correctly, the online training must be restarted.
