Recently the new Dutch e-learning of the NFU BROK® course was officially launched. You can register for this e-learning course via nfu-ebrok.nl (currently only available in Dutch, the English translation is expected to be available on January 1, 2020). The Basic course on Regulations and Organisation for clinical investigators (BROK®) addresses legislation and regulations that apply to research and is mandatory for all researchers who are involved in human-based research.
For whom is this new e-learning?
The new e-learning is not only for researchers who want to obtain their BROK® certificate, but also for researchers who already have a BROK® certificate and want to keep their certification (re-certification). Check the online BROK© register to see the expiration date of your certificate.
Subscribe to the e-learning if you fall into one of the categories below:
- You want to obtain a BROK®-certificate or your current certificate has expired. Subscribe to the e-learning and follow the complete BROK®-course. Note, that if your current certificate has expired, you will be eligible for a reduced rate.
- You currently have a valid BROK®-certificate that is about to expire. Subscribe to the e-learning before your certificate is about to expire and follow a mandatory re-registration module which renews your certification and provides access to all course modules.
- You still have a valid certificate? Even then you can subscribe to the e-learning. The new e-learning offers the possibility to purchase a subscription (directly) after obtaining your certificate. You will then receive reminders when there are changes in legislation and regulations so that you stay up-to-date. If you have reviewed these changes in time, your certificate will be automatically extended: from now on, re-certification will become continuous learning.
