Fee for the Delivery of the 3.2. Good Clinical Practice (GCP) module TRREE Certificate TRREE’s philosophy is based on the right to education and provides free on-line access to e-learning modules. However, the maintenance of the programme and the steady control of its quality, in particular through a regular update of its content, are not without a cost. In order to sustain and bolster the programme, we are therefore introducing a 50 Swiss Francs fee for the delivery of the official Certificate for the 3.2. Good Clinical Practice (GCP) module. This amount will be collected only from participants from high income economies (as identified in the 2016 World Bank’s list). We thank you for your understanding and your support that will allow us to continue providing a high quality, accurate and up-to-date training programme in research ethics and regulation worldwide. Access to the training module itself remains free. Only the delivery of the GCP module Certificate will be charged.
