Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Training

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are a cornerstone of pharmaceutical production. Annual GMP training is an FDA expectation whether your company is a large pharmaceutical company or CMO with hands-on manufacturing, or a small, virtual company. Sponsor companies are responsible for the safety, purity and integrity of their pharmaceutical product regardless of where that product is manufactured.

This course can be customized to meet your company’s specific needs. You can select from our listed topics or if there are specific concerns at your organization, we can incorporate topics that are relevant to your team.

Based on the number of topics chosen, the courses can be anywhere from 2 hours to multiple days. The training can be customized for various functional groups such as production, R&D, laboratory personnel, QA/QC, Senior and middle management, etc.

The training will include recent examples of FDA Warning Letters and 483s, as appropriate.
