FeaturesCourses and Dates

Qualified Person (QP) training courses

We have partnered with QP Quandary for the provision of QP training courses.  QP Quandary is led by Alex Hall, who is a former QP Assessor for the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).  This new range of training courses builds on years of experience of presenting Qualified Person (QP) training courses and mentoring future QPs.  Theses courses are more workshop based than traditional QP training courses, and with a smaller groups of delegates, we offer a targeted and personal approach to trainee QPs.  This year the courses are tutor-led classroom based courses, mainly presented in Maidstone in Kent (UK).

We also have two QP courses that are available on-line (Medicinal Chemistry & Therapeutics and Quality Management Systems).  The pre-recorded courses come with comprehensive notes and tutor marked assessments.  Delegates can undertake these courses in their own time.  If you would like details of these self-pace on-line courses then click here.

Key features of these QP training courses:

QP courses focused on YOU

We offer a very personal service to our trainee QPs.  From the start we will work closely with you to ascertain your training and mentoring needs, to get you through your QP journey with us.  We offer training courses in small groups (usually in the region of 5 to 10 delegates), to ensure we focus the training on your specific needs.  We also provide on-going mentoring support to you and (if needed) your sponsor, to ensure that you are gaining all of the training end experience required.

Value for money

Each 3-day course is priced at £1950, plus VAT.  This is much lower than other alternative QP training course providers.  Discounts are available for group bookings and not-for-profit organisations.

Highly interactive workshop style courses

Each Qualified Person (QP) training course is typically of 3-days duration.  Each course is a good mixture of tutor-led interactive presentations, accompanied with exercises and workshops to put the knowledge covered into practice.  Each course covers all of the requirements of the UK Qualified Person Study Guide, plus we focus on ensuring that YOU have the skills and decision making competencies to put this knowledge into practice when working as a QP.  The courses will help ensure that YOU have the necessary technical, interpersonal and leadership skills to be an effective and professional QP of the future.
