GCP Training Program Updated + Other Training Requirements

  1. Updated Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP Training Program

    The Canadian Cancer Trials Group web-based GCP training program (GCP V1) has been updated and will be implemented March 2, 20152 (GCP V2). Please note:

    • Individuals who have already completed version 1 of the Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP training program (GCP V1) will not be required to complete the updated GCP training program (GCP V2).

    • The GCP training requirements by training modules/roles will not be changing.

  2. NEW Canadian Cancer Trials Group Supplementary Training Module

    Version 1 of the Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP training program (GCP V1) included content pertaining to Canadian Cancer Trials Group policies and processes. The Canadian Cancer Trials Group-specific content is not included in the updated Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP training program (GCP V2). This will give Canadian Cancer Trials Group more flexibility to accept alternative GCP training programs as equivalent to the Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP training program. To ensure appropriate training on Canadian Cancer Trials Group processes continues to be provided, a new Canadian Cancer Trials Group Supplementary Training module has been developed and will be implemented March 2, 2015. Please note:

    • Individuals who complete the updated Canadian Cancer Trials Group training program (GCP V2) will be required to review the Canadian Cancer Trials Group Supplementary Training module.

    • Individuals who previously completed V1 of the Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP training program (GCP V1) are not required to review the Canadian Cancer Trials Group Supplementary Training Module.

    • Individuals who have completed an alternative GCP training program that has been accepted as equivalent to the Canadian Cancer Trials Group GCP training program will be required to review the Canadian Cancer Trials Group Supplementary Training module.

  3. NEW Health Canada Division 5 Training Program

    A new Canadian Cancer Trials Group web-based Health Canada Division 5 Training Program has been developed and will be implemented March 2, 2015. All Canadian Cancer Trials Group staff and centre personnel participating in Canadian Cancer Trials Group trials with an active role must complete training on the Canadian Food and Drug Act Part C Division 5. Please note:

    • Division 5 training is required by June 1, 2015.
