Our training courses are open to Cancer Trials Ireland members/ research staff working on Cancer Trials Ireland trials and studies.

To attend you first need to register your interest by completing the online training enquiry form telling us your preferred course; Full Day GCP Training or Refresher GCP Training and your preferred dates.

We will get back to you in a few days confirming if a space is available. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Confirmation of reserved places will be sent out approximately 2 weeks before the date of the course along with the agenda, list of required pre-reading, and confirmation of details (directions to course location, times, etc.). As spaces are limited, cancellations must be received at least two weeks prior to the course.

The Full Day GCP Training Course is delivered at Cancer Trials Ireland’s office at 60 Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin 2 (http://goo.gl/maps/wams) or another city centre location. It generally starts at 9 am and ends at approximately 5 pm. Lunch and refreshments are provided and casual dress is acceptable.

Refresher GCP Training Courses are offered at every Cancer Trials Ireland DSSG meeting (held 3 times per year) and take one hour. Exact venues/ times will be provided closer to the date.

Training materials are provided but you should bring a pen and notebook. Certificates of attendance are issued after the training course.

Details on upcoming training courses are available here.
