RQAP re-registration units: 1 non-GCP, non-GLP

*Note: Participants must attend 100% of the training course to receive a certificate of attendance documenting RQAP re-registration units.

It's all about the data. In a study, that data is the raw data. For Testing Facility Management in a GLP facility, that data is metrics. During this course, we will explore perspectives of QA and Testing Facility Management on value-added metrics and how to use them to make sound decisions for improving operations.

At the end of the course, the participants shall be able to: 
  • Identify 3 ways in which QA and Operations metrics can be utilized in a GLP laboratory.
  • List 3 types of metrics that could be implemented in a GLP laboratory.
  • Analyze the data from the metrics to make recommendations.
