Our training approach is such that we have designed a computer system validation course that not only meets FDA, ICH and Eudralex expectations for risk-based validation, but also prepares you to put implement these practices in your business. The standard operating procedures and validation models used in the classroom have already proven themselves in other companies. We focus on your understanding and application of CSV techniques that will result in effective, efficient and inspection-ready validation initiatives.

This training will begin with a pharmacy treatment of the fundamentals of CSV. After laying the groundwork, it will transition to a format that includes interactive lectures and plenty of exercises on the validation plan, traceability matrix requirements, and writing a validation summary report.

All participants must appear for the final exam and will also be rewarded with CSV certification.

Each participant will be able to understand the logic of the CSV process and overall understand “how the FDA thinks” when auditing company CSV documentation.
