Community of Practice (COP)

This Training course is of particular interest to existing and future members of the ISPE GAMP® Community of Practice (COP)

CPIP™ Technical Knowledge and Competency Elements

This course contains knowledge related to the CPIP™ technical knowledge competency elements Quality Systems: Systems Validation and Information Systems. For complete information concerning the knowledge elements or the CPIP Credential, please visit www.ISPE-PCC.org.

Continuing Education Units 

ISPE will provide continuing education units (ISPE CEUs) for all North American seminars and courses, including educational programming at the ISPE Annual Meeting. CEUs are nationally recognized units of achievement designed for those individuals continuing their education in their chosen field or profession.

Delegates attending European seminars and courses will receive a Certificate of Attendance, as ISPE CEUs are currently not offered at European events. Verification of CEUs is based on attendance as well as satisfactory completion of all evaluation materials. Statements of credit will be sent via email within four weeks of evaluation materials. One hour of education programming equals 0.1 ISPE CEU credits.
