Online Qualified Person/QP Training

Are you thinking of becoming a Qualified Person (QP)?  Are you wishing to broaden your pharmaceutical experience and education?  Is it difficult to find the time to be away from home and the office? Our on-line QP training courses may be just the answer.

The Qualified Person training courses have been designed for busy QP candidates who want to fit short 15 to 30-minute chapters of learning into a hectic work schedule and cannot afford three, four or five days out of the office.  Former delegates have also wanted to avoid “cramming” a vast amount of knowledge into a small window of time, preferring to spread their learning over a longer period, depending on their personal and business circumstances.

Learner Feedback

There has been a great response to our on-line QP training courses – see below:

This has been the best QP course I have attended so far – the others were over a few days and it is harder to concentrate for long periods when covering such large chunks of information

The quizzes were good – as it made the recent learning embed well

This course allowed me to explore on my own and work at my pace

Well structured. Liked the course

The detail was good too – not too much – and not too little either
