Short description

During this course you will get acquainted with GMP at a practical level and all your questions will be answered.

We introduce you to the world of GMP by leading you through various pharmaceutical production processes. Theory is alternated with practice. You experience personally what it's like to be in a sterile environment and you participate in GMP gowning procedures. Are these gowning procedures really necessary? Yes, they are! Human beings pose the greatest risk in the pharmaceutical world. The challenge with GMP is to limit this risk. To achieve this, expertise, behavior and performance play a crucial role. That's why these aspects are a recurring theme throughout the program. We also examine situations that are not executed according to GMP.  What are the consequences? In short, this course will let you experience GMP in a way you will never forget.


  1. Understanding the meaning of GMP and becoming familiar with commonly used terms. 
  2. Realizing the importance of GMP by experiencing the daily practice of pharmaceutical production processes.
  3. Experiencing what it's like to walk around in a GMP environment.
