Venue: Computer based training (CBT)
These are web-based programs which include narration. A CBT must be completed within a set timeframe, in your own time. As the trainer and you are not on-line the same time, this type of event is also know as asynchronous elearning (no live interaction with the instructor).
Access to a CBT requires one computer (with printer and speakers to hear the narration) and one internet connection with login information provided by ARCS. Please see internet requirements below.

What others have said:
"The ARCS GCP online training course has led me through the research stages from sponsors, investigators and patients, and HRECs. Having the bigger picture, and everyone's roles clearly set out, I can take more initiative my work. I've also got a sense of the particular needs of clinical research. I see how I could develop my role from the general medical admin skills I first brought to it. (The technical support from ARCS was excellent, too.)"
