Thirteen self-guided online learning tutorials covering an array of data management topics typically offered in in face-to face training are now available. This online learning resource, like the face-to face workshops, focuses on the design and conduct of data management processes in accordance with GCP and 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines. The modules can be studied individually, as each module is self-contained, or as comprehensive training. In general, the modules take 30-60 minutes to complete with a quiz at the end of each unit.
Please note that this online training is available only for investigators funded by the DHHS/NIH/NIAID Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID).
