Open Registration

Open registration GDP training

You can register for a GDP seminar. These are in the Utrecht region and are given throughout the year. A GDP seminar is divided into a number of training days; ranging from half a day to 5 days. There are on average 7 to 25 places available per seminar. Our GDP seminars are in smaller groups, so that we can guarantee interactivity.

On the course days, lessons are given by various experts from the GDP industry and regulations. The theory is alternated with workshops and other interactive elements.

The following are included in a GDP open-registration training:
Buffet lunch
For most training sessions longer than half a day.

The essential materials such as a pen, tools and a workbook to make notes.
Food & Drinks
Coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks are supplied during the day.
GDP Training Certificate
A GDP certificate of participation, in some cases a certificate of competence (after passing the exam).
Copy of Slides
A digital copy of the slides will be provided after the training.

GDP Training In-house

In addition to seminars, we also provide GDP training in-house. During these training courses, our experienced trainers come to your company to provide your employees with a course. An in-house training is cost-efficient when a large group of colleagues needs to be trained. On average, an in-house GDP course lasts 1 day.

During the GDP in-house training all participants come from the same company, we can go more deeply into certain issues, challenges or cases that you bring up as a company.

Are you interested in an in-house GDP training? Then you can contact us. We are happy to plan an intake session in which we go through the current questions, wishes, learning goals and the desired result. This way we can offer you the best GDP training. This is followed by a quote for approval. The offer includes a concept program which has been compiled on the basis of the intake.

GDP Training eLearning

Also if you are looking for a shorter GDP training on a specific topic? You can contact PCS. On our eLearning platform you will find various GDP courses that you can follow behind your laptop or computer. During these short training sessions, of approximately 90 minutes, we will cover a specific topic, such as; ‘What is GDP?’, ‘Data integrity’ and ‘Quality systems for GDP’.

The eLearning consists of an interactive interface, in which image, sound and interactive elements are combined. Take quizzes, for example. Our eLearning is mostly spoken in English with Dutch subtitles.

The eLearning GDP training is concluded with a short quiz in which knowledge about the content is tested. If you have completed all mandatory parts and successfully completed the quiz, you will receive a certificate of participation.
