Regulatory Courses

You are a clinical research professional; investigator, monitor or other staff active in the field of clinical research; then you need to comply with the Good Clinical Practice guideline, including the recently released ICH-GCP E6 (R2) Addendum 2016. This eLearning course will allow you to understand the responsibilities of everyone involved, which allows a direct implementation in your area of work. We will give you the needed training, required by the majority of European Regulators.

This course has been reviewed by the Belgian GCP Inspectorate.

Our ICH-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.


Through an interactive approach, this eLearning course is designed for professionals who are active in clinical research. Without training on the International Council on Harmonization Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) standard, or without experience in clinical research, professionals are not always aware of the legal regulations that govern clinical studies, including post-marketing trials. ICH-GCP is the guideline ruling all clinical research including its conduct, performance, monitoring and reporting of the results. This eLearning course focuses on the requirements of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) in clinical studies with pharmaceuticals. The complete and most recent version of the ICH-GCP, up to the items added in 2016 is covered by this training.

Interactive quizzes and exercises for self-assessment are included to provide a better understanding of each part of the course. You will be able to test your comprehension with a final grading assessment.

All ECCRT eLearning courses include a touchpoint with the trainer to discuss open questions from any student. Continuous interactivity with the trainer and fellow students is also encouraged through the ECCRT Virtual Campus Discussion Forum.
