Course description

This course provides an overview to quality management with regards to medical device product development, the requirements of the ISO 13485 standard including the processes and documentation needed.

Benefits for you

We have designed this course to be as hands-on as possible with real life examples of how to work, quiz questions and workshops throughout. By the end of the course you will truly understand what you need to do and why.
Reading the ISO 13485 standard is easy (albeit not particularly entertaining), but understanding the meaning of the requirements and how to implement them in an effective way is much harder. This course gives you the keys to unlocking the meaning of the requirements and the ways you need to work operationally to meet the requirements.
We pride ourselves on making a topic that could be considered somewhat “dry” and “boring” interesting and even fun. The course has a high pace with a high level of interactivity.
