GMP and GDP Training

Paul providing a Training Class

Volume 4 Good manufacturing practice (GMP) Guidelines Chapter 2 – Personnel: All personnel should be aware of the principles of Good Manufacturing Practice that affect them and receive initial and continuing training, including hygiene instructions, relevant to their needs.

GMP training

Regular GMP refresher training ensures that GMP remains in the forefront of your staffs minds.  We can develop and/or deliver induction and ongoing GMP training in accordance with your requirements.  This can be done in a systematic way by reinforcement of key requirements of the Orange Guide or a more targeted approach by reviewing your risk register, deviation and complaints metrics for recurring failure trends.

GDP training

Regulators are starting to pay more attention to pharmaceutical wholesaling and distribution with the greater risks posed by counterfeiting and the increasing demands for cold chain shipment.  Staff knowledge and understanding of their role and vigilance in anti counterfeit measures and the consequences of failure in cold chain supply through effective GDP training will help to avoid or detect issues that may arise.  We have experience in delivering GDP training to staff and reviewing effectiveness of the training through post training knowledge assessments.

PGPC Training ClassInspection Readiness Training

We at Paul Graham Pharma Consulting believe that a pharmaceutical facility should be in continuous compliance with GMP, the manufacturer’s licence conditions and individual Marketing Authorisations. We can help by conducting a gap analysis to identify areas for improvement.  We can also offer training and mentoring of staff to enable them to conduct themselves well in front of the inspector to facilitate the inspection process.

Quality Risk Management Training

We have experience in delivering risk assessment training using FMEA which includes training exercises on real life pharmaceutical scenarios to help staff to understand and use the risk assessment tools to deliver real benefit to your business.

Delegate TestimonialCovance Laboratories

“Paul Graham Pharma Consulting delivered a ‘GMP Auditor Training’ course tailor-made to our requirements.
The training was very professionally delivered across the whole experience from training materials, delivery style, confirmation of understanding and follow up.
Each delegate was provided with a comprehensive take home folder with training materials and addition relevant information. The day comprised clear presentations with relevant break-out sessions to prompt discussion. The personal tailoring of the training meant that we could focus on areas most relevant to us within our business, and the tutor worked with us to ensure we got the most out of the day.
We took a comprehensive quiz at the end of the session to test understanding of the delegates. These were returned, graded and with certificates of completion within a few weeks of the training course. Overall it was a very positive training experience and I would not hesitate to recommend PGPC for training of this type.”
