  • You will gain a basic understanding of IT systems and how they work
  • You will learn how software is developed and tested
  • Data integrity is one of the basic requirements in the GMP world. What is the relevant data and how can its integrity be ensured?
  • You will be able to assess how the diverse and often very short-term technological developments in the IT sector are to be evaluated against the background of pharmaceutical requirements


In today’s world, company operation is no longer possible without the use of IT. In the healthcare industry, as well, IT systems play an important role in all areas. In many cases, it is sufficient for the user to be able to operate the IT systems without knowing their basic functions.

In a highly regulated industry, the use of IT systems, especially with their ever-increasing networking, is also associated with risks and dangers. Currently, for example, the media extensively report about topics such as data and system security. The pharmaceutical industry has to face these topics in many respects.

Only those who know the characteristics and modes of operation of the systems and can assess their problems and dangers, are in a position to ensure the proper and safe operation of these systems.

Target Group

The Online Training is aimed at employees of pharmaceutical and medical companies, suppliers and service companies who deal with IT systems, but do not have a detailed understanding of their technical functions.
