We run a large number of training courses specifically designed to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical and food manufacturing industries.

All our courses are focused, interactive, flexible and very cost effective, and our tutors are carefully selected for their current, relevant industrial experience. They ensure they are always up-to-date with developments in regulations and guidelines, as well as advances in technology and quality systems.

Qualified Person Training - our flexible QP training programme consists of self-contained modules closely aligned to the knowledge requirements of the Joint Professional Bodies study guide.  Take a look at our New 2016 course calendar for QP module dates.

Pharmaceutical Training - our specialist courses for the pharmaceutical industry cover areas such as Good Manufacturing Practice and Good Distribution Practice, Responsible Person, Auditing and more. Invest in your biggest asset with our outstanding training.  Take a look at our New 2016 course calendar.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) - our range of CPD activities complement our training courses and allows attendees to maintain and enhance their knowledge and skills related to their professional roles. These include our very popular one day course which covers a range of areas (including 'change management') as well as our specific WebTorials to discuss current hot topics within the pharmaceutical industry. 

We are based in beautiful surroundings on the University of Reading campus and offer comfortable, purpose built training facilities in order to maximise the delegate learning experience. Contracted industry renowned subject matter experts deliver our training courses to the high standard we expect for our clients. We team interactive, workshop based learning methods with short tutor led presentations so that, no matter what your learning style, you will end the course with not only an understanding of the subject, but also the ability to put theory into practice. Some of the benefits of having our own training facilities are:

  • Ample on-site parking
  • Secure access with lockable storage areas
  • Our site is fully accessible with disabled access and facilities
  • Separate refreshment areas
  • Outside benches for use during warmer months

We offer delegates the opportunity of tours of our analytical facilities and meetings with RSSL colleagues when attending our training courses.
