Good Clinical Practice Certification

What is GCP Good Clinical Practice in Research?

ICH GCP Good Clinical Practice Guidelines are international ethical and scientific standards for the design, conduct, performance, monitoring, auditing, recording, analysis, and reporting of clinical trials. The goal of GCP is to ensure the protection of the rights, integrity, and confidentiality of clinical trial participants and to ensure the credibility and accuracy of data and reported results.

It is required for the (principal) investigator and staff involved in the conduct of GCP clinical trials, to have completed GCP training before start of a clinical research. An Ethics Committee will not approve a clinical trial if the (principal) investigator does not have a valid GCP training certificate, including an ICH GCP test.
Besides, every 3 years, a GCP refresher training should be retaken.

PharmaEduCenter’s online GCP courses meet the identified GCP training minimum criteria for investigators and site personnel, and are added to the list of providers and accepted GCP training courses. As a result, our GCP course is acknowledged and accepted by all pharmaceutical companies affiliated with TransCelerate. You will no longer be required to complete a duplicated GCP course.

  • GCP principles ensure that clinical trials are conducted in an ethical and scientific manner. It provides guidelines for clinical trial design, conduct, performance, monitoring, auditing, recording, and reporting.
  • Any person working in clinical research or any organization conducting clinical trials with human participants must comply with the GCP guidelines and should have a Good Clinical Practice Certification.
  • We offer the most advanced Good Clinical Practice training recognized by Transcelerate Biopharma.

The benefits of having a Certified workforce

In clinical research, having a workforce with GCP certification is invaluable. Good Clinical Practice, or GCP for short, is the norm that clinical trials have to follow to guarantee compliance and safety. This applies not only to CROs and Sponsors, but also to clinical trial sites.

  • Employing personnel with an ICH GCP certification can save CROs or Sponsors a lot of money and lead to better patient outcomes, reduced clinical trial errors, enhanced regulatory compliance, and higher trial performance.
  • The availability of skilled personnel who understand good clinical practice standards will enable CROs to acquire new protocols much more quickly and easily.
  • Ensuring safe and ethical clinical research that complies with regulatory standards requires a workforce with GCP certification. Proper practices lead to lower failure rates and costs.
  • Clinical trial sites that have received GCP training for every member of their staff are typically qualified, approved, and initiated faster.


GCP training is required for research teams involved in clinical trials of drugs, biologics, and devices research studies.

  • ICH E6 (R2) GCP Essentials for investigators and site personnel and Buenas Practicas Clinicas para Investigadores y centros (ICH GCP E6 R2): are both suitable to train clinical investigators and site personnel (in English and Spanish, respectively) on the fundamentals of GCP and how to apply them practically in the research setting. It is also ideal as a GCP refresher, as it meets the minimum criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training identified by TransCelerate BioPharma, Inc. as necessary to enable mutual recognition of GCP training.
  • ICH GCP E6 (R2) Good Clinical Practice training: is suitable to train clinical research professionals (those working in the Pharmaceutical Industry and CROs, as for example, CRAs/Monitors) that need a more comprehensive knowledge of ICH GCP. This GCP training is also ideal for people just starting or willing to start working in the Pharmaceutical industry, CROs or Clinical Sites, as it provides comprehensive and practical  knowledge of the ICH GCP Guideline.

Although they are both vital to the development of medicine, clinical and medical research have different goals and purviews.

Any research that attempts to deepen our understanding of human health and disease is included under the broad category of medical research. Among other sorts of studies, it might include population-level research, epidemiological studies, or simple laboratory research. Identifying the underlying causes of disease, creating new diagnostic instruments, or investigating novel treatment approaches are all common goals of medical research.

Contrarily, clinical research is a branch of medical research that focuses on investigating novel medications, therapies, or interventions in human subjects. Clinical research can involve conducting clinical trials to test novel medications, medical devices, or procedures. It frequently entails conducting meticulously controlled studies to evaluate the side effects, efficacy, and safety of these interventions.

If a person is interested in investigating more general issues regarding human health and illness, such as comprehending the underlying mechanisms of a disease or determining risk factors for a specific condition, they may opt for medical research over clinical research. On the other hand, if a person is eager to test a novel intervention on humans in order to ascertain its efficacy and safety, they might opt for clinical research.

For the purpose of expanding our knowledge of human health and disease and enhancing medical treatment, both clinical and medical research are essential. Together, these complimentary methods enhance patient outcomes and progress medicine.
