Good Clinical Laboratory Practice

A professionally developed, interactive and engaging online training course.

Delivering unique, exciting and interactive e-learning technology courses.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Good Clinical Laboratory Practice (GCLP) was first drafted and published in 2003. Then, in 2006 the World Health Organisation (WHO) published GCLP guidance on its website as the standard for laboratories undertaking samples from clinical trials.

GCLP guidance identifies the systems required and procedures to be followed within an organisation which conducts analysis of samples from clinical trials in compliance with the requirements of Good Clinical Practice (GCP).

This interactive and engaging GCLP course provides sponsors, laboratory management, project managers, CRAs and quality assurance personnel with an understanding of the framework for a quality system in analysis of clinical trial samples. It will ensure that all laboratory processes and results are GCLP compliant.

Finally, an online learning platform that’s fun, engaging and can be taken on any device, anywhere, anytime.

WlLL THE COURSE TAKE?

I recommend the online Clinical Research Professionals course to everyone who is thinking of launching their career in clinical research. It is the perfect starting point because it gives you all the necessary basic information presented in a very accessible way, even if you have no preleminary knowledge or are not a native English speaker. The course is well structured and the use of concrete examples makes it easy to grasp the theoretical learning material. In the course you can also find several links to relevant websites which makes it an excellent document to keep for future reference. The user friendly online learning platform completes this pleasant and useful learning experience.

I certainly enjoyed using the course and I thought it was easy to use overall. I thought the interactive part of the course and a little tests at the end of each section were especially useful.

I just wanted you to know that I thought the GCP course was good. The right level and I liked the fact you could read more if you wanted to e.g. articles.

"I found the system easy to use and the navigation through various screens was easy too. Varying the way information was accessed and the way the quizzes were done made it more interesting than if it was all the same throughout"
