Which training course should I complete?
Human Subjects Protection (HSP) Training
The HSP training must be completed by all personnel engaged in human subjects research. The Social & Behavioral Research - Basic/Refresher is appropriate for the majority of research studies conducted at UTD (Surveys, interviews, observations, analysis of existing data, etc.). The Biomedical Research - Basic/Refresher course is appropriate if your research involves biomedical procedures.
Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Training
All study personnel working on a federally funded project that qualifies as a Clinical Trial (as defined by the NIH) must complete the GCP training as well. The GCP Social and Behavioral Research Best Practices for Clinical Research should be completed if the purpose of the research involves investigating the effect of an intervention. The GCP Clinical Investigations of Devices should be completed if the research involves devices that are still in the investigational stage.
How often do I need to renew the training?
