GAMP5® Courses: "A risk-based approach to validating computer systems" – GAMP 5® training

GAMP-5® Training Courses – Overview of Certificate Course

This GAMP-5 training course covers how to validate computer systems and the essential principles on how to use a risk-based approach in Computer Systems Validation (CSV). Whilst referred to as GAMP 5 training by past trainees, the course provides compliance with broad GMP requirements and is designed for professionals seeking training on a practical and cost-effective approach.  By using a risk-based approach and an excellent understanding of various CSV methodologies including those in the Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP®5) guidance, the waterfall and V models, EU & PIC/S – Annex 11 and the FDA – CFR Part 11.

“There are major business benefits in having a defined process that delivers systems that are fit for intended use, on time, and within budget. Systems that are well defined and specified are easier to support and maintain, resulting in less downtime and lower maintenance costs…”
