Good Laboratory Practice

A professionally developed, interactive and engaging online training course.

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

ABOUT THE COURSE

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations were developed in the late 1970’s in response to malpractice in research and development activities by pharmaceutical companies and the Clinical Research Organisations (CROs). GLP regulates the practices of scientists working on the safety testing of prospective drugs. Compliance with GLP ensures the quality and integrity of data and that a true representation of that data is presented to the regulatory authorities.

This interactive and engaging course examines the reasons why GLP is needed. It examines the regulations themselves, considers the personnel, equipment and facilities needed to conduct a non-clinical laboratory study that is GLP compliant, and uses scenarios to look at how these regulations apply in our own workplaces.

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

HOW LONG
WlLL THE COURSE TAKE?

"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"

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 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.
