Training – an essential part of the GDP compliance process

The need for trained staff in the handling of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products has become an established requirement of every Good Distribution Practice (GDP) publication. As the logistics process for these highly sensitive commodities becomes more complex, it is essential that all staff involved in their distribution have been properly trained. It’s simply about patient safety.

Exelsius has become renowned for it’s certificated training and with over 2500 students from more than 180 companies having attended a variety of its courses, we can ensure that your personnel are trained to GDP standards. And because we teach not just individual roles, but about the end-to-end supply chain process, students gain that all-important understanding of the impact they can have on a successful supply chain.
