Effective GxP Training Practices

What to train - How much to Train - How to Document Effectiveness


Order Button

No or inadequate training of employees is one of most frequently cited deviations in FDA inspection observations and warning letters. Trainings are either not planned, not conducted, not evaluated or not documented as expected by inspectors. On the other hand it has been is estimated that about 5% ofemployee's time is spent for training. So there seems to be lack of understanding on what the regulations are, their interpretations and expectations of inspectors.

Key Questions related to trainings are:

  • What do FDA and other regulations say about training?
  • What exactly are the expectations of inspectors?
  • How to develop an efficient and compliant training program?
  • What are the most efficient tools for GxP and part 11 training?
  • How to develop and document training plans for employees?
  • Does risk based training make sense?
  • What documentation should be available as evidence for successful training: are certificates enough?
  • How should I document that the trainer was qualified?
  • Should electronic training tracking systems comply with 21 CFR Part 11?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations.
