QMS Training for Medical Devices: FDA QSR and ISO 13485:2016

The must-take foundation course for all medical device RA/QA professionals!

At the end of this medical device QMS training course, you’ll understand the basic requirements for FDA’s Quality System Regulation (QSR), ISO 13485:2016, and more. Through engaging classroom discussions, workshops, and activities, you will follow a product’s life cycle to explore how different elements of ISO 13485 and FDA’s QSR should be implemented at each life-cycle phase. You will address the major QMS subsystems and learn how to prepare for a Notified Body or FDA inspection.
