Course Description
Software Validation has come under intense scrutiny by the FDA in recent years. This course will examine the current industry/FDA environment and will give you tools for survival; it will provide an introductory guide to planning and preparing for software validation and includes a discussion of the control of the entire “software lifecycle.” Requirements for software specifications, Validation Master Plans, qualification protocols, test scripts, deviation handling, qualification reports, configuration management and “maintenance of the qualified state” are discussed. Further, this course provides “content understanding” so important for auditing software development and validation activities as required in today’s FDA regulated industry environment.
