Training at Your Site - Pharma Biotech

  • Overview
  • Benefits
  • Courses

If you want to develop an individual, send him or her to a public training course; but if you want to develop and motivate a whole team – or the entire workforce – bring the training in-house to your location.

On-site training gives your people exactly the training they need, when and where you want it.  It puts you in control of everything, including the costs.

NSF International is globally recognized as a provider of top quality on-site training.  All of our public training courses can also be run at your site, but the advantage of our on-site programs is that they are specifically designed to meet your precise needs.

Course duration can vary from half a day to five days and may be single events or a series of linked training modules delivered over a longer period as part of a major, organization-wide culture change program.  Optimum attendance is 10 to 25 people, although more or fewer can be accommodated.


All our training courses are aimed at improving operational excellence and competitive edge. Instead of you coming to us, we can come to you. We work with you to tailor the course so that:

  • Course content is focused on your products and procedures to meet your exact needs and requirements
  • Case studies directly reflect the experience of your people
  • Everyone is exposed to the same message so changes and improvements to on-site practices can be implemented quickly and efficiently
  • Your company’s issues and challenges can be openly and confidentially discussed
  • Everyone listens to the same message
  • We meet your precise GMP training needs

Additional benefits include a better return on your investment:

  • No travel or hotel costs
  • No time away from home
  • Less work disruption


All courses delivered at your site are aimed at improving operational excellence and competitive edge. Some examples of courses NSF has delivered on-site include:
