What participants say about RETP courses:

“Excellent overview on GCP with stimulating method of presentation. Held my interest throughout.”

Professor Peter ThompsonDeputy Director Harry Perkins Institute

“The presentation was extremely clear, as was the distinction between international standards, Australian requirements and laws relevant to Western Australia.”

“I have found it to be invaluable, particularly as it is a resource that can be accessed at a time that is most suitable for the user, I can refresh on any of the components that I have already completed if I need to.”

B. Lee FyfeClinical Nurse, Neurogenetic Clinic, Royal Perth Bentley Group

“I recently completed the GCP training, which in part is common sense, but a great all round refresher of good practice. I have studied through a university for research methods, data analysis etc. and submitted my research project proposal. With hindsight, I would have been far better prepared if I had done GCP training early on in my research project.
I would strongly advocate the training to any novice researcher to do as early as possible! The modules and content are very easy to navigate and very user-friendly. Thank you for making this freely available – a great resource.”
