Our in-house Pharma GMP, GDP, QMS and QP courses can, when required,  be tailored to meet the specific needs of your organisation. Delivered in your workplace or using our ‘live online interactive’ courseware , this can be a cost-effective way of training groups of staff,  and provides a great opportunity for team building. In addition, we can also provide optional consultancy services, to help embed the learning from our courses across your organisation

In-house courses (also referred to as on-site) provide a very cost-effective way to train all of your team on the same topic. It also has the benefit that you can incorporate your company or product specific requirements and it will enable you to embed the same learning messages across the workforce. 

Delivery Options

Traditional classroom

Traditional classroom or workshop style events at a location of your choice normally your site or perhaps a local hotel if this is not a possibility.

‘Live Online Interactive’

Ideal where your team are geographically dispersed, or it is impractical to meet at your site due to social distancing constraints or other logistical reasons.

'Bitesize' events

The course is delivered over a few hours across multiple different days, so that your staff are not away from their jobs for too long at any one time.

‘Bitesize’ delivery is now more feasible due to the use of our very successful and proven ‘live online interactive’ delivery method but, although logistically more difficult to organise, it is also possible to use a traditional classroom/workshop approach too for ‘Bitesize’ events.

And, it is also possible that a course/programme might incorporate all 3 delivery approaches and may even include some of our ‘online self-paced’ learning content if this is suitable.

Course Content Options

We offer a choice of three approaches to meeting your training objectives:

Existing Course PLUS

If one of our existing courses (see course range below) is a close or exact match to what you are looking for, simply contact us to tell us which course, when you need to run the course, where and for how many learners PLUS some details of the objectives of the course and the business issues that have prompted the training requirement. One of our trainers will be in touch to understand your needs in more detail and to ensure that even though the course content will be ‘standard’ the interactive elements of the course will specifically address your business issues.

Customised

If one of our existing courses (see course range below) looks interesting but does not quite match your business needs, why not take the opportunity to have it CUSTOMISED to suit your specific requirements – taking account of your business issues that have prompted this training intervention, your procedures and policies. One of our training team will discuss the learning outcomes you want to achieve, and then tailor the course to meet them, adjusting the content and the  interactive elements and exercises to reflect your own business issues.

Bespoke development

If none of our existing courses (see course range below) come close to your requirements, then we can develop a programme from scratch using our industry experts and their extensive knowledge of the Pharma industry. One of our Training team will work with you to design the right solution – anything from a single event to a full programme of courses and workshops.

Whichever approach you want to take we will provide you with a quotation and a clear specification of the content that we will provide along with the anticipated delivery methods and timescales.

Whatever your requirement, please contact us, as there is no obligation to use our services and the discussions with our expert team may well help you towards a better understanding of the training outcomes you desire and the options open to you. And, these discussions will NOT be with sales or customer services personnel – your requirements will be shared with Pharma professionals who will immediately be able to understand and relate to the business issues you wish to address with this  training activity. And, in many cases, this person will be one of the delivery team tasked to ensure your training objectives are achieved. If you would like to discuss your requirements and get a quotation please send us an email.

Do QC labs work to GLP?

This is a commonly asked question on my training courses which is generally misunderstood.  Quality Control (QC) laboratories that are based at classic pharmaceutical manufacturing sites DO NOT work to GLP.

The benefits of being IRCA registered

Our 5-day Pharmaceutical GMP Auditor/Lead Auditor Course is registered with IRCA, the International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA Ref:PR325).  This is the world’s premier organisation for professional auditors and sets down minimum standards for auditors and auditor training courses.

Raising non-conformities

Many auditors audit by going into areas, finding things that they don’t like and then announcing their non-conformities at a closing meeting at the end of the audit.  This is somewhat of an old-fashioned way of auditing.This article the best way of dealing with non-compliances using modern standards.

What is a medicine?

A medicine is quite a complicated thing, with a number of definitions that go beyond “making you feel better”.   Whilst making you feel better is probably the goal of all medicines you will see in this article that these four words do not appear in the definition itself!
