Regulatory Courses

You need to update and refresh your knowledge on ICH-GCP , including the ICH-GCP E6 (R2) Addendum 2016 but you also want to further focus on the aspects that are relevant to your Biometrics department? Then this complementary eLearning course is designed for you.

How is this course different from usual refresher sessions? It is conducted in a very interactive way to review ICH-GCP through workshops, quizzes and within Biometrics real-life situations.

This eLearning course is designed for Biometrics professionals who already have knowledge of the International Council on Harmonization and Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) standards, but need to be up-to-date up to the items added in 2016. It is designed as a refresher on ICH-GCP and will cover the responsibilities of all Biometrics players on the clinical field. This refresher session, supported by the complementary module, is a very interactive course which will allow you to verify the extend of your knowledge on ICH-GCP and complete the potential gap.

Quizzes and exercises for self-assessment are included to provide a better understanding of each part of the course. In addition, 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.
