CRDO Core Workshops: Practical skills in research

2021 Update:

CRDO is currently running workshops in a hybrid format, with limited places available in person at the Melbourne Children's Campus. We will continue to also run workshops through Zoom for the foreseeable future. 


The workshops are free to all Melbourne Children's staff and students. Melbourne Children's includes anyone who is an employee/student of the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, the University Of Melbourne Department Of Paediatrics, or The Royal Children's Hospital.

The cost of the workshops for external participants (i.e. those who are not affiliated with Melbourne Children's) is $350 per workshop. For external participants, an invoice will be raised and emailed directly to you upon receiving your registration form.

Online Courses

As an alternative to CRDO’s course, you can access an online course provided by Genesis Research Services. Their course is free, Transcelerate-recognised, and tailored to the Australian regulatory environment. We recommend the online option to those unable to attend our face-to-face CRDO workshops. Visit Good Clinical Practice (ICH GCP) Course - Genesis Research Services to enrol.

We strongly recommend that for your initial training you attend one of our CRDO workshops, which are also free to campus staff and students. 

The Genesis Research Services GCP Course is not Victoria nor paediatric research specific. We recommend that all researchers new to the Melbourne Children’s attend the free CRDO workshop where possible, or if you need your certification prior to the next CRDO in-person workshop. For either scenario, please ensure you enrol in the next available CRDO workshop.

Should you require a refresher course once your CRDO certification has expired, the Genesis course is a great alternative to CRDO’s face-to-face workshop. Please ensure you save the GCP certificate issued in your files and send a copy to CRDO if you would like a reminder to renew your GCP certification.
