Whatever your GMP training needs are, Inspired Pharma has the right solution for you. We offer a series of ‘live online interactive’ and “in-person” classroom courses that run on a 3 monthly basis, at least, and often more regularly. These courses are also available for in-house delivery and can be tailored to meet your exact needs.

In addition, we have developed a range of RSC Approved,  “self-paced “online GMP training courses which can be:

  •  used as part of a GMP compliance training programme
  • deployed in a GMP refresher training programme
  • or used as part of a GMP induction training programme
  • or just used by an individual to acquire a good basic understanding of GMP

These online courses can also be complemented with workshop activities designed and delivered by Inspired Pharma experts to maximise the impact of any of these programmes. Our online courses are approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Our expertise is second to none and we have delivered GMP training to many of the top global Pharma organisations.

Live Online Interactive Training

Stay Safe - Attend from home or whilst at work

With 2 expert facilitators and a maximum of 10 delegates our course will utilise state-of-the art interactive online classroom software that will enable you to:

  • chat online with the facilitators and other delegates
  • raise your 'virtual' hand to ask a question
  • participate anonymously in a poll or survey and see an instant display of the class results
  • undertake exercises on your own or in a group

And best of all, no travel is needed nor a stay in a hotel reducing any risks of COVID-19 and saving you a lot of time, hassle and money. 

As always we will ensure this event is inspirational, enjoyable and educational. See the feedback below:

What is involved?

We will send you a link to the live online interactive course with your joining instructions once you have booked your place. 

You should log into the training session 10-15 minutes before the start time, to ensure that you have set up the courseware  correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and be seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

I found the interaction very good by using the chat option as it keeps everyone interested and there was a variety of questions and answers.

Quality / EHS Specialist, DCC VITAL

Great course, although it was virtual I felt we got the same value for money as if it was F2F, a 10 out of 10!!! I will recommend to colleagues

Quality Executive, ABPI

The GMP course was ran very well. Both presenters were very knowledgeable in the area, both for the EU and other countries. I would highly recommend this course to those who are new to the area of GMP, as well as those who just need a bit of a refresher.

 

Training Officer, THORNTON & ROSS

 Why choose Inspired Pharma for GMP training?

Firstly, our team includes experts in GMP with many years of experience in its practical deployment in pharmaceutical organisations – see more details here. Our expertise and understanding about GMP can also be seen in the articles we publish on our website. These have included:

Brilliant – the most engaging course I’ve ever been on.

Production Supervisor, ACTAVIS

I didn’t expect to enjoy the course as much as I did

Warehouse Operator, AESICA

Great content and lively presentations

Production Team Leader, ACTAVIS

Great tutors – engaging and fun to learn

Upstream Scientist, ALLERGAN

The course is informative, well-structured and easily digested. I really enjoyed the course and it will always be a reference for me. I will definitely recommend it for other colleagues.

Trainee Qualified Person, MONROL

On a three day course Inspired delivered to 12 supervisor’s, QA and Engineers. The course was more intense, but Dominic kept everyone involved and interested. Staff feedback from the course was inspiring and have carried through with the learnings from the course.

Assistant Manufacturing Manager, CUSTOM PHARMACEUTICALS

Our most recent independently verified reviews from the Reviews.io website

Documents required by EU GMP

The list below details the documented procedures specified as being required by EU GMP. It is worth pointing out that many times in GMP there is a requirement to have a “procedure”, but this is not the same as a “documented procedure”.

GMP Calibration

Around a pharmaceutical manufacturing site there will be many measuring devices that require calibration. GMP requires the calibration of such devices with similar requirements in both EU and USA GMP

Dealing with problems – for good

Problems happen in work and in life.  Problems also happen within any quality system. GMP requires problems to be dealt with correctly.

CAPA – time for a rethink?

Most manufacturing sites these days have CAPA systems – a mechanism to capture, record, control and approve or reject Corrective Actions. However despite this approach many organisations feel that they are still in “fire-fighting” mode – always dealing with yesterday’s problems rather than preventing future issues from occurring.

ISO 9001 versus GMP – Part 2

One of the main problems of comparing GMP and ISO is that the two standards are not the same and are not really trying to do the same thing. This article highlights the key differences.

ISO 9001 versus GMP – Part 1

ISO 9001 versus GMP – this article lists the clauses of ISO 9001:2015 identifying requirements of ISO that are not specifically mentioned in EU GMP

Quality Assurance or Quality Control?

Quality Assurance or Quality Control? This article outlines the importance of these functions and areas where there may be some overlap.

Basic audit findings and EU GMP clauses

This article lists a number of common basic audit findings and the corresponding clause in EU GMP that is relevant. Readers should note that there is often some repetition in GMP, so I have tried to find the best single clause.
