News from The NIAID GCP Learning Center
On Jun 2, 2017, or soon after, the NIAID GCP Learning Center will be moved to a new platform.
  • This will improve speed and the user experience.
  • These improvements are a necessary step to make the next set of upgrades, including updated content and Continuous Educational Units (CEUs).
  • Only records reflecting compliance with NIH GCP training policy (completion of all 4 modules within the past 3 years) will be migrated into the new platform.
  • Certificates reflecting compliance with the NIH GCP Training policy will be available for printing from the new platform, at the same url (https://gcplearningcenter.niaid.nih.gov).

If you have not completed all 4 modules prior to June 2nd your progress will not be recorded 
and you will need to begin the training from the beginning in the new platform. 

Please send any questions to niaidgcphelp@niaid.nih.gov.

  • You may log in using your PIV card or with your username/password combination that you use to access your HHS desktop computer.
    • If you use your username/password you DO NOT need to enter the domain (i.e., NIH\) in front of your username

OpenID and Research Organizations (Non-HHS Users)

OpenID (Personal Accounts)

If you do not have an NIH or other HHS account or an account serviced as a Research Organization, OpenID allows users to use their existing accounts (or create new ones) at a third-party OpenID provider. This site supports accounts at Google and Verisign.

How does OpenID work?

  • Select OpenID as your Account Type from the dropdown menu.
  • Choose your OpenID provider (Google or VeriSign).
  • Log in with your existing username and password or create a new account following the provider’s instructions (Create a Google Account, Personal Identity Portal).

Research Organizations

Non-NIH users affiliated with an organization that participates in the federated login program with the Federal Bridge may log in using an existing institution username and password. These institutions include many universities and large organizations. Check http://www.incommonfederation.org/participants/ to see if your organization participates or find your organization in our dropdown list.

  • Select Research Institution as your Account Type from the dropdown menu.
  • Choose your research institution and log in using your existing username and password for that institution.
