Published 16 April 2018 | By NSF International

NSF International provides a comprehensive range of support services for the pharmaceutical industry covering consulting, training, auditing, remediation, quality systems and regulatory guidance on a global basis.

NSF has expanded its training offer and now provides pharma biotech eLearning. NSF's new pharma biotech eLearning includes short, targeted, highly focused "how to" sessions on common industry themes as well as introductions and overviews on topics essential for those new to the industry. Learn from NSF's trusted industry experts and take away tools and techniques that can be used instantly in the workplace.


NSF's eLearning allows you or your organization to train many employees economically, helping to deliver a consistent message without time constraints.


It is ideal for:

  • Employees new to the pharmaceutical industry
  • Operational, analytical and laboratory-based staff who are unable to leave their place of work for long periods of time
  • Experienced industry professionals who are looking for continuing professional development

Learn at your own pace at a time convenient you. The first eLearning training sessions include:


GMP for Engineers

This session is ideal for engineering technicians and contract and technical support staff who need to be aware of how their actions may create or contribute to GMP non-compliances, which may affect product quality. Exercises and case studies help participants recognize how much interaction they have with GMP compliant processes/systems, how to mitigate risks associated with each interaction they have with validated/qualified systems and their key role in maintaining compliant processes within the bigger team.

Microbiology - The Basics

This session is ideal for staff in operational and support areas - production, engineering, QC, QA, validation and technical, as well as those new to the pharmaceutical industry and/or microbiology. We cover the real meaning of microbiology in operations and why it matters. You'll learn the risks associated with microbes and how to eliminate or control them so that the patient is protected. You will be able to apply your knowledge from this session in your daily work.

Self-Inspections - How to Make Them Add Value to Your Organization

Why do you conduct self-inspections and why are they important to your organization? This session provides an overview of the key elements in each stage of the self-inspection process, outlining where it fits into the overall audit pyramid. Learn how to make your self-inspection program world-class.

Once you have completed your training, the team at NSF provides additional support and guidance for any specific questions.
