Bolstering its commitment to clinical research workforce development and safe, ethical clinical trial conduct around the world, the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) is now providing free online human subject protection and ethics training.

“With today’s announcement, we are advancing our mission to promote excellence in clinical research and helping realize our vision that clinical research is performed ethically, responsibly, and professionally everywhere in the world,” says Jim Kremidas, ACRP Executive Director.

Today’s news follows a recent announcement by the National Institutes of Health that it is retiring its Protecting Human Research Participants online course effective September 26, 2018.

“In light of the NIH announcement, we feel compelled to meet the needs of professionals and organizations alike as they seek to ensure the protection of the medical heroes who volunteer as clinical trial participants,” Kremidas adds. “In clinical research, people are everything. Human subject protection and ethical conduct are paramount to the continued advancement of medical progress through clinical research.”

ACRP’s Ethics and Human Subject Protection online course is immediately available – free of charge – for clinical research professionals and organizations.

This comprehensive online training program is available globally and provides in-depth training on the importance of ethical conduct in clinical trials involving human subjects.

Featuring the interactivity and high quality of ACRP’s industry-renowned training programs, Ethics and Human Subject Protection supports and reinforces ethical behavior in clinical research.

Clinical research professionals can take immediate advantage of this program by visiting acrpnet.org/ethics.

Organizations looking to take advantage of this and other institutional training solutions are encouraged to visit acrpnet.org/stafftraining, or contact:

This Fall, ACRP will also release a refresher course for those who have already undergone comprehensive ethics training to provide individuals and organizations with a convenient and efficient solution for ongoing continuing education. Details will be announced soon.
