This 4.5-day intensive training workshop will provide 8 experienced GCPs auditors with the knowledge, tools, and insight required to successfully use their transferable knowledge, experience and skills to move into the PV quality assurance and compliance space. Our aim is the make this the best PV auditing course available in the industry. It will include hands-on mock auditing activities and a certification of completion. It will be based on common sense and risk-based decision making ... and it will be fun! The first session will take place this fall in Philadelphia. Registration to open soon.
Why is the course limited to 8 attendees? Limiting this workshop to 8 GCP auditors supports our vision of providing a tailored, personal learning experience that will include conversation among like-minded professionals in addition to classroom learning, hands-on exercises, and group and personal mentoring. Upon completing the workshop, each GCP auditor will also receive an hour of one-on-one Skype mentoring with Penelope Przekop. Penelope will work with each auditor on how they can best address their specific goals and/or challenges as they move into the PV space, whether as a permanent employee or consultant. Although the workshop will include the topics below, it will be tailored to the attendees to ensure that no time is wasted and each attendee feels confident as possible about PV auditing when they complete the workshop. To this end, attendees are required to provide their professional CV to us and to participate in a 30-minute call with Penelope Przekop in advance of the workshop.

Laying the Foundation: The first 1.5 to 2 days of the workshop will focus on global PV regulations, guidance, and expectations. The spotlight will be on those most commonly audited against; however, others related to more specific nuances such as FDA REMS, devices, product complaints, and biologics will also be discussed. The amount of time spent on each topic will be based on review of the attendee CVs and a 30-minute pre-workshop telephone discussion.
Understanding the Risks and Using Common Sense: Throughout the first two days, as we cover global regulatory authority regulations, etc. we'll also focus on risk-based approaches and best practices that impact our industry and PV auditing practices. This includes consideration and discussion on how regulators and the industry expect regulations to be interpreted and applied.
Transferring Your Skill Set: As an experienced GCP auditor, you've amassed a valuable skill set. At least half a day will be spent on instruction, discussion and mentoring to assist attendees with understanding how elements of their established skill set can be applied to PV auditing. Each attendee will identify their specific transferable skills and knowledge and how they can be applied to PV auditing. To ensure best results for this session, it's important that each attendee provide their CV in advance of the workshop.
The PV Audit: After an initial focus on PV Audit planning, a significant amount of time will be spent moving through a typical PV Audit agenda. Each "agenda" session will be a learning experience on how to conduct the session, what should be requested, reviewed, explored, evaluated, etc. Each session will be dovetailed with the topics noted above to provide a comprehensive understanding of PV auditing. Specific typical scenarios as well as real world examples will be shared and discussed. Auditing exercises will be sprinkled in to provide hands on learning experiences.
Anything Worth Having is Worth Working For: In this session, we'll acknowledge and discuss the challenges inherent in moving into the PV space. How can you get your first PV auditing assignment if you haven't yet conducted a PV audit? How should you structure your CV? How do you get started? How can you best answer typical questions that will be asked when talking with decision makers about your ability to conduct a PV audit? All these questions and more will be addressed. Specific, actional suggestions, tips, and tactics will be provided to support your move into the PV auditing space. At the end of this session you should feel confident that you can do this! This session will also be tailored for those in attendance, considering their current employment status (permanent employee vs. consultant) and goals.
