Whether you are a pharmacy skimming model with a requirement for Responsible Person/RP refresher training or want Driver GDP training or Basic GDP Training for your new staff, we can help.

Personnel dealing with any products which require more stringent handling conditions should receive specific training.

A record of all training should be kept, and the effectiveness of training should be periodically assessed and documented.
