PMF Training Series – Completion Timeframes and Online Course Duration

How long will it take to complete all 4 training modules in the PMF series?

  • The training is entirely self-paced over the internet
  • The Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Fundamentals (PMF) training contains 4 distinct online GMP modules of slightly different durations (from 1 to 2.5 hours each)
  • Completion of the entire series will provide learners with four (4) separate GMP Course Completion Certificates (one Certificate of Completion per module)

To complete the entire series, please allow from 5 hours to 8 hours (average). Please note that course completion timeframes for the entire PMF series will vary depending on the topics being covered and individual learning styles/learning capacities.

Expected course completion time frames for the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Fundamentals Series (4 separate PMF  modules):  5 to 8 hours total

PMF Series Details:

  • Each learning module in the PMF series is slightly different in length, corresponding to the nature of the topic and depth of topic coverage.
  • On average, each module in the PMF eLearning series of four modules will take a minimum of 45 minutes to 1 hour, to a maximum of 2.5 hours or more, to complete — including the online Final Assessment.
  • Allow a total of 5 to 8 hours for the entire series.
  • Learn at your own pace – you can access the materials 24/7 for up to 12 months.
  • Note: Learners with pre-existing experience in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Engineering may be able to complete these courses in a more rapid time frame

GMP Training Course Certificates

  • Successful completion of the Online Assessment is required to gain a GMP Course Certificate of Completion for each of the four modules
  • If you purchase and complete the PMF Series, you are eligible to gain 4 GMP Course Certificates of Completion (one per module, one learner/end-user per course purchase – single-user per purchase)
  • Copyright – all rights reserved; the course and course contents must not be duplicated or shared.

Disclaimer: As noted, individual course completion time frames can vary significantly as there are so many variables that can impact learning time frames and course completion rates.

A PharmOut Certificate of Completion is available for each of the four modules in the PMF series, once the online Final Assessment is successfully completed.

PMF Series – Course Pre-requisites

There are no prerequisites for this PMF orientation course although other courses will be helpful.

Additionally, onsite custom training programs and adequate Supervision are required for personnel working in these sectors.

Recommendations for supplemental training and/or prerequisites: It is helpful to have an understanding of basic GMP principles and GxP compliance regulations before embarking on the PMF series, such as covered in GMP01 and GMP02 and the 10 Golden Rules of GMP.

Good Recordkeeping practice training is also recommended for all employees as recordkeeping and documentation are often cited in warning letters from Regulatory Authorities such as the TGA, MHRA and FDA.

You can take those additional GMP courses before OR after you complete the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Fundamentals training course.

GMP Course Certificates

Upon successful completion of the online Final Assessment of each module, you’ll be able to download and print a Certificate of Completion for these Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Fundamentals courses (you’ll gain 4 PMF training course Certificates of Completion if you successfully complete the Series).

The Pharmaceutical Industry fundamentals training package will provide you with a brief overview of:

  • Different types of pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities
  • Various pharmaceutical dose forms
  • A glossary of terms for key phrases used in the industry
  • Regulatory requirements for pharmaceutical water quality, HVAC systems, product containment and cross-contamination prevention measures.
