Target Group


Reduced Sampling / Reduced Testing
This GMP Education Course is directed at all those employees from quality control units in the pharmaceutical industry (including heads of quality control and laboratory managers) who are competent or responsible for sampling, testing and release of starting materials (APIs and excipients) and packaging materials (primary and secondary). This course is also of interest to personnel from quality assurance and to those employees from API, excipient or packaging material suppliers who want to inform themselves about the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry on the testing of these materials.

Analytical Instrument Qualification
This GMP Education Course will be of practical value to scientists and engineers in analytical laboratories and contract laboratories in an FDA-/GMP-regulated environment who are responsible for the calibration and qualification of their laboratory equipment and for the validation of the computerised systems used in their laboratories.
