Effective Training Skills and Processes in the Pharma Industry (London, United Kingdom - November 30, 2017 December 1, 2017) - Research and Markets

Research and Markets
Posted on: 03 Oct 17

The "Effective Training Skills and Processes in the Pharma Industry" conference has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

An interactive course ideal for anyone with responsibility for planning or delivering training in the pharma, device or animal health industries (including GxP and SOP training to comply with EU and FDA inspection requirements)

Training can play an important role in the success of a company and in employee performance, with effective training and support helping with higher productivity and resulting in lower staff turnover. It is also becoming increasingly common for compliance training to be a focus of regulatory inspections, with frequent inspection findings on lack of formal training processes and inadequate training documentation.

This intensive course will enable you to understand how to train others effectively through interactive discussions, exercises and practical examples. Using a proven and best practice framework for training, this programme will equip you with the confidence, skills, techniques and knowledge to design, deliver, evaluate, identify training needs and implement a successful training strategy in your role. There will be plenty of opportunity for sharing experiences and best practice training approaches with other participants during group discussions.
