ISPE Launches Three New Online Learning Product Lines
(TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, 16 JUNE 2009) - ISPE, a global not-for-profit association of 25,000 pharmaceutical science and manufacturing professionals, announced today the introduction of its three new Online Learning products: the ISPE 2009 Washington Conference Session series, the Certified Pharmaceutical Industry Professional (CPIP) Online Course series, and the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Online Training Course series.
"With the increased restrictions placed on executive travel, and the demand for education remaining stronger than ever, ISPE's latest Online Learning offerings will truly accommodate a multitude of training needs in today's challenging economy," said Robert P. Best, President and CEO of ISPE. "Having access to an expert directly from their desktops is what most pharmaceutical professionals want, and as the leader in pharmaceutical education, ISPE can supply that with its expanding library of Online Learning opportunities."
From among its outstanding lineup of speakers, ISPE is also making select sessions from its successful 2009 Washington Conference available as downloadable Webinars. Those industry professionals who were unable to attend the conference can still benefit from the numerous global regulators - including those from the World Health Organization and U.S. Food and Drug Administration - who generously shared their expertise with participants on topics ranging from global supply chain integrity to validation and quality by design.

The Certified Pharmaceutical Industry ProfessionalTM (CPIPTM) Online Course series provides a broad range of learning opportunities for career growth and professional development. The CPIP series of self-directed online courses is designed for two groups: those pharmaceutical professionals who are hoping to obtain general pharmaceutical industry knowledge that runs the gamut from drug product development through manufacturing, as well as to those who are seeking industry-wide recognition of accumulated experience via the CPIP credential. It is a convenient, cost-effective way for pharma professionals to access the knowledge and experience of industry leaders and innovators.

"My participation in the CPIP program allowed me to see all pharmaceutical, business, quality, and facilities processes as one complete picture," said recent CPIP conferee Peter Werner Christensen, Senior Quality Professional with NNE Pharmaplan.
Developed in cooperation with the global leader in GMP training, the GMP Institute, the pre-recorded Good Automated Manufacturing Practice Training Online Course series is being developed and reviewed by expert instructors and international regulatory advisors. Each 60- or 90-minute event will provide an interactive learning experience that includes a pre-assessment to identify knowledge gaps, a downloadable course presentation for note-taking, learning reviews/assessments highlighting important points, links to various web pages, an online resource handout as a quick reference for all web links discussed, and a summary of the assessments to gauge knowledge gained.
Each of these webinars can be found in ISPE's Online Learning Catalog, which features course titles for every recorded ISPE webinar and online course sorted by topic, title, and area of interest. Each event is led by an industry leader, subject matter expert, or a member of one of ISPE's Communities of Practice (COPs) and is available in a convenient and cost-effective recorded format for "anytime, anywhere" use.
