Within our headquarter facilities in Oslo, there is a huge conference centre with many differently sized auditoria, seminar rooms and class-rooms. This enables us to host seminars with a capacity of up to 100 people. Thus, we regularly arrange scientific and operational seminars on topics related to clinical trials, regulatory affairs and statistical methodology with the objective of offering a meeting place for the local clinical research society. In addition, we are proud to present our regular training courses within GCP-related topics, training courses that have been built on almost 30 years experience with GCP. In addition to priodic training courses, our team is able to tailor-make specific courses for smaller groups, e.g. project-specific training of study staff, where examples and cases will be taken from the specific study protocol.



GCP Training for investigators, study nurses and monitors
These courses are mainly focused on educating study nurses, investigators and site staff in the discipline of good clinical practice and in particular the resonsibilities associated with being an investigator (site). The course includes theoretical lectures and practical workshops. We are also able to adapt a course for your specific needs. Courses can be modified to last half day, full day, or 2 days, depending on clients' wish and needs. We are also able to tailor examples and cases to a specific protocol/study. 

Accredited University course in Medical Statistics
Online statistical training is available through Smerud Statinet AS (Norwegian). This course is presented in collaboration with the Medical Faculty, University of Oslo. Currently we arrange five courses, all of which are a part of the Norwegian Medical Association's continued medical education programme.
