As an employee in the quality assurance department at Pharma Co, you will assist your colleagues in resolving GMP deficiencies. This course consists of 14 different cases. Each case analyses a production incident such as a mix up, a contamination and a FDA-warning. The trainee must find the GMP-violation(s) causing the incident by using a checklist during the investigation. The trainee is given access to extra video fragments and documents (batch records, logbook information), which might contain the mistakes. After each case an instruction is given about the GMP rules which have been violated. Each case ends with a test.
