What you’ll learn – There are 2 modules in this 15-week program

Module 1 – Manufacturing Safe Medicines (Weeks 1-5)

In this module, you’ll learn about the systems used in pharmaceutical manufacturing. You’ll learn about the rules and regulations such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) that you need to follow. And you’ll learn enough technical information to get you talking to employers.

Module 2 – Commissioning and Qualification (IQ OQ PQ) of Equipment and Systems (Weeks 6-15)

This is the validation bit. In this module, you will develop your own 100-page Validation Protocol to commission and qualify a clean-in-place system. You will also learn to read P&IDs, Piping Isometrics & Electrical Loop Drawings used to Develop Validation protocols. And you’ll learn how to qualify equipment, instruments and piping systems, along with automation controls and building facilities.

Already Have Validation Experience?

If you already have some experience working in Validation and know how to populate an IQ OQ PQ validation protocol, check out our academically accredited Pharmaceutical Validation Training Course (Online) – For Senior Validation Roles.

So What Is Validation?

Validation creates a documented evidence trail (through rigorously checking and testing) to demonstrate that a system, procedure or process used in the production and testing of the pharmaceutical product:

  • maintains compliance at all stages
  • and leads to a consistent and reproducible result

Commission and Qualification is one part of a larger validation process for making sure that a facility – and the equipment in it – will function as required and be approved by the regulatory agencies that have jurisdiction over that facility.

An IQ OQ PQ Validation Protocol is a written plan stating how validation will be conducted including test parameters, product characteristics, production equipment and decision points on what constitutes an acceptable result.

IQ OQ PQ or Installation QualificationOperational Qualification and Performance Qualification are 3 independent and documented procedures used together (when executing a validation protocol) to check and test that a mechanical or software system is;

  • installed correctly
  • meets its design requirements and specifications
  • operates the way in which it was designed under load

What Does the Online Classroom Look Like?


We use one centralized platform where you can log into your classroom. There you will get your weekly program materials and assignments, ask questions, reply to messages, and more.

Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and validation focused projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7.
We release only one week’s worth of material at a time and then MANUALLY check your activity logs weekly to make sure that you’re managing to keep up with your workload. This helps us to spot any potential issues early. And you’ll have a dedicated course leader who will follow up with you if it looks like you’re starting to fall behind.
Your working schedules are unpredictable so we offer flexible delivery. Slow down, speed up or pause the delivery of the program.

“Validation – A Career Move to Tell Your Friends About”

“I would say to anybody out there, if you’re thinking about doing this validation course, just go for it. Do it.

There’s a great opportunity within the course to learn. There’s a lot of detail about what goes on in the industry, on the floor, how things happen. Focus just as much on learning to actually educate yourself as much as passing exams. You actually have to embrace it and really get interested in the course material.
