Training Recommendations

Back to Program

The ACRC Provincial Training Recommendations –  have been released (updated January 2022.)

High-quality research stems from training and a knowledgeable research team. “Each individual involved in conducting a trial should be qualified by education, training, and experience to perform his or her respective task(s).” [ICH GCP E6 (R1) (2.8)]

It is with this principle in mind that ACRC, on behalf of partner organizations, endorsed the inaugural series of training recommendations in 2015. The inaugural provincial training recommendation document underwent a review and subsequent revisions in October 2018 to reflect the changing regulatory landscape which was approved and endorsed by the ACRC Executive Committee.

Recommended training by project type*

The ACRC has developed the following tables to guide individuals on the training courses that are recommended and applicable to their work (refer to Appendix 1) for training/course descriptions). Frequency of training is adequately flexible to accommodate different experience levels, and gaps in training of research study staff. Each course may be re-taken at any time if an individual warrants additional training.

Refer to your organizational and institutional guidelines for additional training requirements.

* The Provincial Training Recommendations are subject to change in the event of significant course material content changes or updates; or with changes to either provincial and/or Health Canada regulations and guidelines.
