Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Training Courses from CfPA

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Training

Any organization conducting a non-clinical study is required to follow good laboratory practices, which help assure regulatory authorities that the data submitted is a true reflection of the results obtained during the study and can therefore be relied upon when making risk/safety assessments.  GLP training is important so your organization can implement GLP and produce reliable data that complies with regulatory agencies' good laboratory practice guidelines, specifications, and regulations.

As the leader in continuing education and accredited technical training, The Center for Professional Advancement (CfPA) offers the most state-of-the-art, cutting-edge GLP training available. Our comprehensive curriculum of online and public courses run one- to five- days in length and include discussions, case studies, and group problem-solving exercises which are taught by top industry leaders who share their knowledge in an enthusiastic, interactive manner.

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Highlights

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) generally refers to a system of management controls for laboratories and research organizations to ensure the consistency and reliability of results as outlined in the OECD Principles of GLP and other national regulations.

Good Laboratory Practice is a quality system and the manner in which non-clinical safety studies are: Planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported and archived.

Learn the good laboratory practice regulations by taking CfPA's in-demand Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) course.  This GLP training course will concentrate on OECD good laboratory practice guidelines and their application in member countries. View course summary now.

Personnel involved in good laboratory practice:
  • Sponsor - Organization commissioning and submitting GLP work
  • Management - Responsible for providing adequate resources to run GLP studies and designates a study director prior to study initiation and replace, if necessary
  • Study Director - The single point of study control-takes responsibility for the overall conduct of the study and its final report
  • Study Personnel - Follow protocols, SOPs, analytical methods
  • Principal Investigator - Responsible for test site supervision
  • Quality Assurance Unit (QAU) - The means management uses to assure regulatory agencies that the work was conducted and reported according to good laboratory practice regulations

    The current regulatory environment imposes far reaching responsibilities on Study Directors and Principal Investigators in preclinical regulatory R&D. CfPA's dynamic new course, GLP Study Director focuses on the GLP regulations of the FDA and OECD. View course summary now.

Good Laboratory Practices are required for all laboratory and field studies intended to assess the safety of the following:
  • Drugs & medical devices - human & veterinary
  • Pesticides - fungicides, herbicides (weedkillers), insecticides, etc.
  • Chemicals - dyes, photocopier toners, detergents, adhesives etc.
  • Biologicals - antibiotics, hormones, transplants
