Steps to Mutual Recognition for GCP Training
Various CITI Program GCP courses meet the minimum criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training identified by TransCelerate BioPharma as necessary to enable mutual recognition of GCP training among trial sponsors.
How do I know if I have completed my GCP course after the effective date?
You can refer to the table below for the course names and their effective dates.
|GCP Basic Courses
|GCP Refresher Courses
|CITI Canada's GCP Courses
|Spanish Translations of GCP Courses
|Portuguese Translations of GCP Courses
If you completed a GCP course before the effective date for version 2, you can return to the course and re-complete the modules (after effective date for version 2) to receive credit for completing version 2.
Your CITI Program Completion Report has two parts.
How Do I Read My Completion Report?
- Part 1 (Requirements Report) shows quiz scores at the time you "completed and passed" the course requirements, and is "frozen" thereafter.
- Part 2 (Transcript Report) is continually updated and shows the most recent (up-to-date) quiz scores and modules completed (even optional modules that were not part of the original course requirements).
Once a Completion Report has been issued you will not be able to change the scores on Part 1.
* A Completion Certificate is not a Completion Report. The Completion Certificate i a one-page ("diploma-like") confirmation of the course completion. It does not contain any of your coursework (no listing of modules or quiz scores).
If your organization has set an expiration date for the course, this date is shown on both the Completion Report (Requirements Report) and Completion Certificate. You may also review expiration dates through the "My Reports" link on your learner menu.
See the Transcelerate BioPharma website on Mutual Recognition for more information about training time frame and expectations.
Course Transcript - Description Field
GCP Completion Reports contain language to help sponsors, monitors, auditors, and others know that you have completed a mutually recognized training. On the Completion Report’s Transcript Report, there will be a statement in the Description field that identifies:
- Course Name
Note: The description field will only show if the learner completed the required modules within the effective period of time.
