The GMP Training for Operators is a useful course for packaging and manufacturing organisations, both for new staff or those requiring a refresher.
The course is designed to minimise the operators’ time away from the workplace. Within the half day course, the important basics are covered through interaction and operator involvement.
This course can be delivered on-site for maximum benefit, providing the option of covering two sets of operators over one day. The training is also available as an open course delivered in hotels.
