Training is essential for maintaining high standards of quality assurance and compliance to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). GMP regulations clearly state that employees involved in manufacturing, packaging, labeling or holding of dietary supplements must be trained in their respective role in maintaining compliance to 21 CFR 111.

NSF international has been offering top quality training courses on a vast range of dietary supplement, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and quality management and regulatory topics since 2010. Our public courses take place at comfortable, business-oriented hotels in major cities in Europe, the USA and China.

Course duration generally ranges from one to three days depending on the complexity of the topic. Discounts are offered if you are a current NSF GMP customer.


Training can assist your team in preparing your facility for its first NSF dietary supplements GMP registration audit, or can help keep your quality team fresh during annual GMP audits if your facility has already achieved NSF GMP registration.

When you take an NSF dietary supplements training course, you receive knowledge and tips from experienced industry auditors that can then be implemented directly at your own facility. NSF training and education gives you the tools necessary to build a highly qualified team that can lead your business into the future.

If you are currently an NSF GMP registered facility, you receive 20 percent off any training classes offered by NSF. Check out our course listings for upcoming classes, dates and course details.


NSF hosts open courses, ranging from one to three days, around the U.S. on topics of current interest to the dietary supplement industry. These courses utilize carefully selected industry speakers with expertise and experience to offer a practical focus on the regulations and the latest regulatory issues. Our courses attract people from all over the world and provide an opportunity for attendees to make new contacts and to learn from each other as well from the instructors.
