Earn Continuing Education Credits for ICOI
Because Learn eCORE adheres to rigorous training standards, we are able to offer a variety of continuing education credits for our ICOI course through a joint provider arrangement with an established continuing education accreditation organization.
Continuing education helps ensure that professionals keep up with changes in their fields and are following best practices. In the research compliance and ethics context, this means being broadly knowledgeable about investigator conflict of interest (COI) and current regulations like the federal financial conflict of interest (FCOI) regulations as well as associated guidance and policies for identifying, reporting, and managing both financial and non-financial conflicts.
Who is it for?
Recognizing that those involved in research come from many health-related disciplines, CEs are offered for a variety of health professionals including:
- Physicians (CME)
- Psychologists (APA)
- Dentists (ADA CERP)
- Nurses (ANCC)
Key Features & Benefits of The CE Credits
- Learners who complete Learn eCORE’s ICOI training have the option to purchase continuing education credits. Up to 1 CE credit can be earned for this course.
- Note that CE credits are processed by our joint accreditation partner. After successful completion of a Learn eCORE course (conflict of interest or human subjects protection training), those who have purchased CEs are electronically forwarded to claim their earned credits.
