GLP basics: A half-day course on the
rationale for following Good Laboratory Practices for the purpose of
improving laboratory output. It covers definitions, documentation
requirements, and proper methods for data recording. This course is
designed for in-lab scientists and technicians, and managers needing
a refresher in GLPs, as well as new Study Directors. The training can be tailored to
academic institutions, faculty and/or graduate students.
GLP Roles and Responsibilities: This course covers the
GLPs for Study Directors, Sponsors, Principal Investigators and
Participating Scientists. We evaluate real-life scenarios and reinforce,
Who signs what document? And When? The required elements of protocols
and final reports are described. Case studies of multi-site studies
are reviewed. This course can be tailored to a company’s specific
needs from one-day to two-day and significant input from in-house QA
is encouraged. It is designed for Study Directors, Sponsors,
Principal Investigators, Participating Scientists and Test Facility
Management of companies that routinely conduct multi-site studies.
Introduction to GLP: A two-day course that covers Good
Laboratory Practices. In addition to definitions, required elements
of documents, and roles and responsibilities, this course focuses on
the FDA or EPA’s inspection and audit processes. Why must every
sample be labeled properly? How much time does the Study Director
really have after the close of the study to archive the data? Why
can’t we assign two Study Directors to certain studies? Learn to
think how an inspector thinks in evaluating the quality and integrity
of laboratory data. This course is designed for Study Directors and
Management and significant input from in-house QA is encouraged.
Practices: A short-course
for laboratories seeking to enhance the overall quality and
reliability of their data. This course is based on the
principles of Good Laboratory Practices, but it serves scientists
who are not required to submit results to a regulatory agency.
Research laboratories, academic teaching labs, forensic labs, and
contract analytical labs can gain by taking this course. Non-GLP
companies can strengthen their reputation in their
industry, their patent processes, and product marketability.
How To Write SOPs: A half-day
course on writing effective Standard Operating Procedures.
This course includes the basic elements that should be present in
each SOP, the writing basics of scientific detail and instructions,
managing revisions, and formatting and grammar tips.
Basics of Microbiology, "Bacteria for Beginners": A half-day course
for employees new to industrial microbiology. Microbiology
terms, principles of QC and disinfection, water testing, preservative testing,
and environmental monitoring are reviewed. In addition, the
basics of microorganisms, and how they relate to a clean production
facility and a quality research environment are covered. This
is a good intro for technical personnel with little background in
microbiology or for non-technical individuals who need training in
specific areas of microbiology.
Antimicrobial Test Methods: In-lab training on EPA FIFRA
testing requirements for making antimicrobial product claims for disinfectants
and sanitizers. AOAC Use-Dilution Test, AOAC Germicidal Spray Test,
Non-Food Contact Sanitizer Test, Food Contact Sanitizer Test
included. Other test method training available, including sterility,
stability testing, environmental sampling, MIC, additional test methods
specific to your facility's needs.
