Training Required of Researchers and Supervisors

In order to ensure that your ethics application receives favourable ethical review, it is essential to demonstrate that you have the appropriate level of training required to perform research in your chosen field. Some examples of specific training requirements are shown below:

Human Tissue: MRC Training and Registration of Study. For the MRC Training, please visit the link here and complete the Research and Human Tissue Legislation-Updated Course.

Clinical Trials: GCP Training (register first through the Training Catalogue, then once your application has been approved, a link to the course will appear on your Blackboard home page)

Please choose the most recent course. This will remain available on Blackboard for three months from the listed start date.  To apply, click the apply button in the bottom left corner of the sign up page and then choose from the courses available. (Please don’t select the 'I wish to apply for general access...' option, as this doesn’t in fact provide what it appears to!) Shortly after signing up, you should receive a confirmation email. The course link in Blackboard should then appear within the following 24 hours

Vulnerable adults/children: Sufficient prior experience and CRB check

Personal Data: Data Protection Training
