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.
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
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.
