Course "Evolution of the Quality Management System - How to go from Surviving to Thriving" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
Using lecture, discussion, and exercises, this 2 day seminar will focus on taking your QMS from surviving to thriving.

We'll discuss tools and techniques for improvement and how to measure your progress.
Why you should attend:
Many companies struggle to establish and maintain a Quality Management System (QMS) that is both efficient and effective. An ineffective QMS leads to disastrous consequences such as medical device reports, recalls, 483s, and warning letters. An ineffective QMS can result in serious consequences for your customers leading to dissatisfaction, serious injury, or even death. It is imperative that medical device companies can effectively establish a QMS.
And an inefficient QMS results in wasted time, money, and missed opportunities. In this 2-day seminar, we will use lecture, exercises, and discuss to learn the fundamentals of a Quality Management System and how you can take your program from surviving to thriving. A thriving QMS can help you achieve your compliance objectives and improve product quality, leading to higher customer satisfaction and business results.
