Updated GCP for Sponsors

Barnett’s on-demand GCP refresher training  focuses on the ICH Guideline for Good Clinical Practice, as it is the internationally recognized foundation for the conduct of clinical trials. Designed for those working in sponsor companies and CROs, Barnett’s content is based on a series of “challenge” scenarios, including real-life situations that are encountered at clinical research sites. As participants move through the scenarios,  comprehensive core content, including ICH references, is available for detailed self-study. The course also  includes an application-based post exam that covers the core content contained in the course.  Participant scores are provided at the end of the course, and once successfully completed, participants are eligible to print a Barnett certificate which documents their completion of the 90 minute training module. Formal CEU certificates can also be obtained, if desired.
