Industry Leading QP Training

Qualified Person Training

U.K and Europe
NSF - DBA | Qualified Person Training | QP Training

We have been running Qualified Person (QP) training courses since 1990 and they are generally considered to be the best available – our QPs are very highly regarded within the industry and their status is recognised by many other countries including Ireland, The Netherlands, Austria, Hungary and Malta.

The course provides practical, face-to-face tuition in sufficient depth to prepare you fully for the challenges ahead. The plain fact is that you are more likely to become a QP with us than with any other training provider.

The Aspiring Quality Leader and the Technical Professional

We run a series of 12 modules held over 21 months, a course carefully designed to meet the requirements for theoretical training as detailed in EC Directives 2001/82/EC and 2001/83/EC and in the latest UK Qualified Person Study Guide.

Not everyone attending wants to become a QP. Many use the training to develop as technical managers within other areas of pharmaceutical manufacture and control. Others attend as part of their continuing professional development including Postgraduate Qualifications.

What We Offer

  • In-depth, face-to-face instruction from seasoned professionals.
  • The University lecturers are acknowledged experts in their field
  • All the NSF Health Sciences tutors are eligible to act as QPs; many are current or former QP assessors and several are ex-UK medicines inspectors
  • All students attending most or all of the modules will be assigned a personal tutor to provide advice and support throughout their training period

Flexibility to Meet YOUR Individual Demands

  • You can join and leave our series of modules whenever you choose, you do not have to start on the first and finish on the last
  • You will have the opportunity to gain a Postgraduate Qualification in Pharmaceutical Quality and Good Manufacturing Practice
  • We will be happy to assess your needs and advise you which modules to take

Free Management Skills Seminars
