Training is a key element in the Strategic Plan and as an Association we are continuously developing and strengthening the core competencies that allow Members to achieve excellence as business partners and expert advisers.

There is in-person Training: usually this takes place at the conference - on the Tuesday afternoon the Learning & Development Committee organise 3 Workshops each lasting 3-4 hours. These are highly tailored courses and in 2018 we are offering the following in Basel.  More information can be found at

The workshop titles are:

Workshop 1 - Design for success – the importance of appropriate screeners and respondent engagement.  Click here to download a pdf about this workshop.

Workshop 2 - Companion Diagnostics Research (and other Diagnostics).  Click here to download the pdf about this workshop.

The workshops will be 4 hours in duration and will be interactive sessions, with plenty of opportunity for attendees to engage with the speakers and other colleagues, so that the workshop experience provides a rich opportunity to learn new skills.

All workshops start at 12.30 on Tuesday 26 June and end at 16.30.  A light lunch will be provided the start of the workshop from 12.00.

Registration for the workshops will open on 22 January when the main conference registration opens. There is a small fee to attend the workshops as follows.  These are the Early Bird fees, which increase after 6th March at 4pm UK time.
