Medical Device Non-Product Software Validation Training

If you’re using software to automate a process that is required by FDA, there is a good chance you’ll be required by FDA to validate that software to demonstrate that it accurately, reliably, and consistently meets the requirements for its intended use. ISO 13485 has similar requirements. 

Non-product software is used across the full life cycle of a medical device and includes software used in the manufacturing process (e.g., software embedded in machine tools and statistical process control software); in design and development processes (e.g., CAD, CAM); software used to automate any part of the quality process (e.g., complaint-handling software); and software related to electronic records and signatures for documents required by regulation. 

In this course, using hands-on exercises and case studies, you will learn how and when to effectively implement a non-product software validation program for medical devices that meets FDA and ISO requirements.  We will also cover the role of risk management in non-product validation.

Upcoming Dates and Locations

Virtual seminars run as 1/2-day sessions. In-person classes run as full-day sessions. See the virtual session daily class times.

Virtual Session Details

The learning objectives and topics covered during virtual instructor-led training (VILT) are the same as those for the in-person version of the course. As well, all VILT classes are taught by the same experienced team of instructors you’ve come to expect from Oriel STAT A MATRIX. To accommodate the VILT format, classes are delivered at a pace well suited to virtual instruction, and the structure of class workshops and exercises has been modified to work best in the virtual environment. Each virtual session is a combination of subject matter expert and group discussions, interactive whiteboards, polls, and chat rooms that help students with small group exercises, making this an engaging, interactive learning experience.
