About this course
Despite advances in technology, quality problems with packaging still continue to occur. Print origination and packaging processes continue to be a major reason for product recall!
This module has been carefully designed to cover all important aspects of the packaging process, from selection of suitable components, pack design, packaging processes and their associated GMP challenges, through the supply chain to the patient.
The module aims to provide the necessary understanding of packaging materials and the packaging process to enable the Technical Leaders to carry out their duties with knowledge and professionalism.
Equally, the module will be of value to staff involved in packaging development, packaging operations, materials management, QA and QC.
How This Training will Benefit You
Pharmaceutical Packaging represents a key element for the Quality Leader and the Technical Professional. This course provides the tools and techniques required to make informed, science and risk based decisions to benefit both the business and the patient.
It will provide the background and knowledge needed by every Quality Professional and Technical Leader whether in Production, Quality, R&D, Validation, Engineering, or any other technical discipline. As with all of NSF-DBA’s courses, it is led by industry and academic experts; frequently incorporating case studies and small group sessions to facilitate learning.
NSF-DBA’s format of extended days and pre-work ensures that both you and your company benefit from the learning experience in an efficient way and with minimal time away from the workplace.
This course on Analysis and Testing is based upon a key component of the Qualified Persons instruction which NSF-DBA offers in Europe. It sets a new standard for practical, results oriented instruction.
A Certificate is granted by NSF-DBA for attendance. Higher degree options – a Diploma and a Masters in Pharmaceutical Quality and Good Manufacturing Practice from the University of Strathclyde can be obtained by attending a full series of courses.
