Biopharma Institute Reviews

The cGMP: Warehouse for Pharmaceuticals training course is developed for those working in a warehouse which is required to follow GMP compliance regulations. The training provides an overview and discussion of the role current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) has in the warehouse. The program offers an emphasis in receipts, issues, storage, and distribution. The course covers an introduction to GMP, and includes sections describing the role of the warehouse, cGMP guidelines which pertain to the warehouse rules, receipts, and issues to manufacturing. The course move on to provide details regarding finished product releases, handling returns, proper documentation practices, and a wrap-up summary.

Student will be introduced to appropriate cGMP regulations and their pharmaceutical industry standards. This training assures that students will understand what is necessary to maintain compliance in the pharmaceutical warehouse, and how to conduct work which adheres to these required standards.

Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire course and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment within a 6-month period, or a 12-month period for professional certification programs. A certificate of completion is immediately accessible in PDF format after satisfying the requirements.

Biopharma Institute certificates and digital badges include the date of completion, but do not have an expiration date. However, compliance training is typically considered valid for a period of 3 years. Many organizations suggest that compliance training should be refreshed at least every three years to stay up to date with regulations, standards, guidelines, and to reinforce the importance of maintaining compliance. The validity period for employee compliance training would be determined by those responsible for managing quality assurance.

Biopharma Institute's online training courses include immediate access after enrollment. Username, password, and instructions are emailed to the student directly following online enrollment into the program. Course takers may attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed, to achieve a passing score. The certificate of completion is instantaneously launched and made available to the student in a PDF format upon completion.

Once all training requirements have been satisfied the achievement can be verified from our website using the unique ID code found on the certificate. Professional certification programs issue a digital badge to verify training and document the achievement. These digital badges can be displayed on social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Badgr.
