Course description

This online course starts where the design control course at Medical Device HQ ends and adds the important layer of project management to the product development process and design control. The course is focused on how to efficiently manage a medical device product development project.

Key topics covered include how to get a project started, defining the scope, budgeting and scheduling to avoid cost and schedule overruns. You will also learn how to monitor and measure the progress of a project.

The course is made up of pre-recorded videos, quizzes, and a final exam. You will receive a course certificate upon successful completion of the course.

We recommend this course for R&D engineers wanting to become project managers, consultants working with medical device projects, project managers within the medical device industry, and managers working directly or indirectly with projects and product development.

If you purchase the ‘Online’ course plan you will have access to the course for 6 months from enrolment. If you purchase the ‘Online lifetime’ course plan you will have lifetime access (conditions apply).

Frequently asked questions

The course is not a webinar. This online course is made up of carefully scripted pre-recorded videos to maximize your learning. You can watch it as many times as you like, whenever and wherever you want. You can not download the course though, thus you will need to have an internet connection to take the course.

All in all, the average time to complete the course is 10-15 hours, but you can complete it in less time if you don’t repeat any of the lessons and have just one attempt at the quizzes. Please note, you don’t have to watch the whole course at once. In fact you can pause, resume and replay as often as you like. The only limitation is the final exam, where you will only have one shot.

If you purchase the ‘Online’ course plan you will have access to the course for 6 months from enrolment. If you purchase the ‘Online lifetime’ course plan you will have lifetime access to the course if you complete the final exam within 6 months of enrolment (conditions apply)

You need to have contact with our servers for your results to register on the final exam. If your computer for some reason has a problem and does not allow you to send the result of the final exam to our servers, we recommend that you take a photo or a “print screen” of the screen with your results. E-mail this image to us and we will investigate if you have successfully completed the exam and therefore should receive a course certificate even though the result has not been registered, or if you have to do the final exam again.

There is no pass/fail on the final exam (as long as you complete it within the time frame). Your result will be printed on the course certificate which means you can be really proud of your result if you get between 90% and 100% of the answers correct!

If you are planning to attend the live virtual class, you will have to achieve over 85% on the final exam. If you don’t reach 85% on the final exam, we can reset your result for an additional fee.

The course certificate is available for download after completing the final exam. All you need to do is log in to your account, go to My Courses and scroll down. You will find it under Your Course Certificates.

We offer a number of payment methods including credit card, GooglePay, ApplePay, PayPal, wire transfer/invoice depending on the country you are buying from. If you cannot find your country on the list at checkout or you are not given wire transfer as a payment method, you can submit your order via our invoice order form

If you purchase five seats for the same online course at the same time, we will give you one extra seat for free on that same course (e.g. buy 5 get 6, buy 10 get 12, etc). The free seat is assigned manually after the order has been received.

The course is personal, that means you buy a license for one person. It is also really inexpensive compared to any traditional course with the same scope. If you have more than one person needing the course, please purchase another seat on the course.

The instructor has conducted training in the field for many years and continuously participates in authoring standards such as the ISO 13485 and ISO 14971. This ensures the instructor has access to leading edge knowledge and information which is the highest qualification available for teaching the course.
