This two and a half day course is the ideal external training opportunity for people needing to gain a basic understanding of computerised system validation. The knowledge gained will help attendees to validate systems within their own organisation for use in GxP (GLP, GCP, GMP, GDP and GPvP) environments, and to audit validated computerised systems to assure compliance with the applicable GxP regulations.
The course starts with an introduction to the regulatory requirements and the system lifecycle and then concentrates on the practicalities of validating computerised systems and auditing these systems.
The course provides a mixture of presentations, discussions and practical workshops.
This course will provide delegates with an understanding of the computerised system validation process, including:
