Changes to GCP Training

November 30, 2020

Because Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training requires completion of refresher training, the set-up of GCP training is being modified in the Ability training system. 

If you wish to complete the initial GCP training through Ability you will be required to register for and complete all 8 courses, instead of registering for a single track. You can also still complete both initial and refresher GCP courses with either a focus on FDA or social science through CITI, and you can still submit completion of equivalent GCP training to the Compliance office.

Because of these changes, the integration between Ability and Click for GCP training will be removed; researchers should instead access Ability or CITI directly to view GCP training information.

For NIH sponsored Clinical Trials the Compliance office will track all GCP training for all project personnel listed in Click. However, it is the responsibility of the PI to ensure all NIH-funded clinical investigators and clinical trial staff who are involved in the design, conduct, oversight, or management of clinical trials complete required training in GCP, including refreshers.
