Medical Device CAPA Training Course: Optimizing Your Programs

This class is only available for private team training (virtual or onsite). 

Every RA/QA manager has struggled with repeat CAPAs. A problem you thought had been solved pops up again months later, but why? Persistent problems are not only annoying, they can endanger patient safety, cost money, and steer internal focus away from other issues.

In this course, you will learn how to optimize your CAPA program by addressing common issues at the program level (e.g., improving timeliness, connecting CAPAs, and leveraging trending), the action level (e.g., addressing human error, applying interim actions, and verifying the effectiveness of CAPA actions), and the problem level (e.g., identifying the root cause, correcting it, and fixing the symptoms).

For public training, see our related course CAPA and Root Cause Investigation Training for Medical Devices to learn how to identify and define the problem, AND then solve it.

  • Learn best practices for how to integrate your CAPA program into your quality system.
  • Understand FDA’s and other regulatory officials’ expectations for “what CAPA is” and the steps required to get you there.
