CAPA Workshops

MasterControl's On-site CAPA Workshop Will Teach You How to Create and Implement a Fully Compliant CAPA System.

Stringent corrective action and preventive action (CAPA) policies have caused a host of compliance issues for life science organizations and other regulated companies recently. In fact, poor CAPA procedures and investigations continue to account for the top FDA Form 483 deficiencies issued to pharmaceutical, biologic, and medical device manufacturers. MasterControl's intensive, two-day CAPA workshop takes you beyond simple complaint handling, and equips you with the skills and knowledge necessary to create an efficient closed-loop CAPA system that is both fully compliant and properly implemented. Any regulated company that wants to not only avoid the risk of enforcement action, but also create a more efficient, profitable organization will benefit from this quality management CAPA workshop, which is delivered on-site at your facility at a time that's convenient for you. Class size is limited to 14 participants.

The MasterControl CAPA Workshop Helps You Eliminate These Common CAPA Problems

CAPA is more than just having a good response to solving problems and correcting their respective causes. CAPA is a process that manages how issues are input, processed, and funneled into your quality system. It requires critical thinking for the successful identification of problem resolution, the implementation of that resolution, and the subsequent verification of the resolution's permanency. MasterControl's on-site CAPA workshop will provide you with the skills and tools you need to eliminate the following common CAPA problems:

  • Countless open CAPAs with no resolution and too many people involved
  • Internal investigators who can't solve problems and find causes
  • Ineffective processes to utilize with personnel presenting data for root cause analysis
  • CAPA processes that don't pass global FDA and EMEA standards
  • No uniform, solid method for investigating problems
  • No process for verifying and validating corrective actions that work

The on-site CAPA workshop is taught using a blended approach of classroom and real-life application. This "how-to" approach significantly increases knowledge retention and allows participants to apply the skills as they learn in a dynamic setting. Click here to review the workshop agenda.
