The programme comprises a series of one-day courses, run over a two-year cycle.

  • A choice of 16 interactive workshops, covering eight core topics, providing regulatory professionals with the opportunity to build up a dossier of training demonstrating technical and practical knowledge 
  • A balance of theory and practice, equipping participants with practical skills that can be applied immediately 
  • Speakers drawn from both regulatory agencies and industry, offering different perspectives
