Qualified Person training programme

RSC Approved

Fast track to Qualified Person success


With over 30 years of experience, RSSL has a proven track record of delivering the most up-to-date training and consultancy services to the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical device, and healthcare industries. We are here to support the career aspirations of pharmaceutical professionals and the skills development of your organisation at all levels.


Since 2003, we have been committed to supporting aspiring Qualified Persons (QPs) to become the best in industry through our highly recognised Qualified Person and VIVA support programme. Approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry, our 11-core knowledge Qualified Person modules are developed in a way that they offer both the theoretical and practical learning experience that is needed for a trainee QP to not only pass their VIVA, but also apply in their day-to-day work life as a QP.


NEW FOR 2023 - We are in the process of creating a blended learning approach for our QP modules, by adding eLearning Knowledge Reinforcement Modules to each of the core modules.


Trainee QPs choose RSSL because our programme provides the most cost-effective, flexible and reliable way to pass their VIVA. The longest QP module in our programme is 3 days and our QP alumni say that the shorter duration of our QP modules, provides just the right length of study time and also gives them the ability to stay on top of their demanding day jobs.
