Course Material

Following requests from attendees of previous RQA events we are pleased to offer course material in PDF format for delegates attending this course. 

The advantages of this include

  • Ability for delegates to keep material on a mobile device
  • Ability to review material at any time pre and post course
  • Environmental benefits – less paper being used per course

The material will be emailed in advance of the course and RQA will not be providing any printed copies of the course notes during the training itself. Delegates wishing to have a hard copy of the notes should print these in advance to bring with them. Alternatively delegates are welcome to bring along their own portable devices to view the material during the training sessions.

You will also receive a copy of our booklet - "Good Clinical Practice Regulatory Authority Inspections"


Where the venue is Madingley Hall, accommodation and dinner are available for the dates of the course (we recommend you take this as the location has few nearby facilities).
