This course is designed for people who are growing in their knowledge of pharmaceutical industry practices and regulations. It will be a "how to" course where the instructors will explain the reasoning as well as the procedures that should be used to meet the various requirements of pharmaceutical regulations as they are applied to validations. The instructors will present different areas of study and present them with a "how to" approach so that the seminar participant can see how the subject matter applies to the participant's work either now or in the future. In addition to discussing the particular subjects they will explain how pharmaceutical regulatory requirements can be met when conducting the work. Each instructor has decades of experience in working with and within the regulated pharmaceutical industry in the US. They will be covering topics that they are familiar with and will present them in a manner aimed at workers who may have been introduced to basic pharmaceutical practices and regulations, and now wish to expand their knowledge base.
