SWOG offers two types of online training courses:

  • Study-specific trainings provide important overview information for site initiation and training processes pertinent to the conduct of the respective SWOG trials.

    • Protocol-specific requirements (PSRs) for training:
      • In the event that study-specific training is required to be completed by the participating site (or site staff) as a prerequisite to patient enrollment, a link to the required training materials (and/or associated training instructions) will be included in the SWOG protocol Sections 13 and 15. (Note: In 2022, SWOG transitioned to provision of study-specific training via the CTSU CLASS learning management system for NCTN studies.)
         
    • Optional study-specific training resources that are provided for site use and support of local site initiation procedures are posted on the CTSU website under the Protocol Related Documents tab (Filter: Education and Promotion) of the respective SWOG protocol. See example snapshot below.
       
  • SWOG member-only training courses (listed below) are hosted in the:
    ExpertusOne Learning Management System
    *SWOG members must login with their current CTEP IAM id and password to access the ExpertusOne system.

    • Clinical Trials Training Course (CTTC)
    • Study Chair Workshop
    • Young Investigator Workshop (Online portion)
    • Investigational Agent Handling
