Learning with the RQA

RQA is committed to providing valuable training opportunities to enhance your professional development. Courses, Seminars, Regional Forums and eLearning are open to everyone; all levels, abilities and disciplines are catered for.

Why the RQA?

A common requirement of Good Clinical Practice, Good Laboratory Practice, Good Manufacturing Practice and Good Pharmacovigilance Practice is that the staff are qualified through training and experience in, and for, their roles.

RQA provides a broad range of training which aid you and your staff in acquiring the knowledge and developing the skills necessary to stay up to date in the ever-changing world of pharmaceutical, agrochemical and chemical research and development.

The majority of our training is CPD accredited

What is accredited CPD training?

Accredited CPD training means the learning activity (course, conference, eLearning etc) has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. The CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD requirements and has accredited much of RQA's training.

The CPD Certification Service is the world's leading and largest CPD accreditation service, with over 25 years' experience supporting accredited CPD training providers across industry sectors and RQA are proud to have our training accredited by the organisation. 

Gain CPD points with our training, which can be added to your individual training record. See this useful article for more information. 

How will remote courses be run?

We have chosen two industry standard platforms to assist in running these. Moodle has been selected for its ability to bring a social aspect to a course (live chat and discussion forums), as well as being a repository for all the information contained in a course.  Zoom will enable our tutors to not only hold presentations, but also take questions in real time.  The software also has the ability to put delegates in breakout groups, enabling workshops to continue. 

Digital Badges

From 2024 we are introducting Digital Badges to course delegates. Digital badges are essentially a digital representation of an achievement, skill, or accomplishment, your badge is proof of your participation which can be saved and shared.
