Product Reviews Write review

This course presented a very clear understanding of the similarities and differences among the various regulatory bodies' views on cGMP. I feel that I was able to reinforce the knowledge that I already had, while helping to expand in the areas where I had little or no understanding. I definitely recommend this course to others.
