Schedule: Self-paced. Immediate access to training materials upon enrollment.
This program offers an introduction to operational qualification (OQ) and performance qualification (PQ). Having undergone Installation Qualification (IQ), before equipment can be used routinely in production, it needs to undergo Operational Qualification (OQ) and Performance Qualification (PQ). This program describes OQ and PQ requirements and procedures in the medicines and healthcare products industries. It follows the activities of a typical validation team as they carry out a project for a pharmaceutical company.
Course training objectives include: To illustrate a compilation of an OQ and PQ report, to demonstrate the preparation, approval, and execution of an OQ/PQ protocol, to offer a summary of the key differences between PQ and OQ, to identify and explain the responsibilities of PQ and OQ, to identify and explain the activities to be carried out during PQ and OQ, and to identify and explain the scope of PQ and OQ.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire course and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment within a 12-month period. 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.
