Pharmaceutical manufacturing is a mix of art and science.  A perfect example of this is small-scale process development and the up-scaling to commercial manufacturing. As a tightly regulated industry, the development and maintenance of controlled manufacturing processes requires you to have a clear understanding of key principles of pharmaceutical manufacturing including:

  • Quality Assurance (QA)
  • Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)
  • Good (Quality Control) Laboratory Practices (G(QC)LP)
  • Manufacturing technologies
  • Process optimisation and validation

Through this course you will develop a basic understanding of quality management, be able to describe the process conditions that impact quality for different dose forms and state process control and validation strategies for these dose forms.


“This course provided us with a myriad of insights, working solutions and informative documents as well as practical knowledge and tools that can be easily applied into the various GMP functions used at our facilities.

I found the course to be comprehensive, informative and thought-provoking.  SeerPharma was extremely thorough, engaging and helpful with our questions.

I would highly recommend it!”
