Pharmaceutical Training and Education

NSF International Logo

You are only as good as your people. NSF offers education programmes that will change behaviours, improve performance and “future proof” your organisation.

Training can be delivered in-person, online via a live instructor-led virtual classroom or as self-paced eLearning. We can customise our courses to your requirements.

Virtual Instructor-Led Training

We redesigned our courses to suit virtual learning, making the best use of technology to enhance interactivity. Our online delivery platform utilises features such as polls and break-out rooms to promote discussion and knowledge transfer while working through tasks and case studies.

Many of our virtual courses require elements of self-paced learning to be completed both before and after the classroom. This is managed through our learning management system and allows participants to access and download course information electronically.

Self-Paced eLearning

Our eLearning supports and complements our traditional training. It includes short, targeted, highly focused “how-to” sessions on common industry themes as well as introductions and overviews on topics essential for those new to the industry.

“I thoroughly enjoyed completing both elements of this course – self-paced eLearning and the in-person virtual instructor-led training – and would highly recommend it to my colleagues. I have gained a heightened awareness of virtual and remote auditing, which could prove invaluable in the current crisis.”
