Knowledge Box

Knowledge Box is a powerful technical resource for engineers delivering real results in problem-solving, quality, validation, compliance and process performance.

What Is Knowledge Box?

Knowledge Box is for professionals working in the medical device and pharmaceutical industries who require a flexible and tailored approach to training and upskilling.

Knowledge Box is for engineers and scientists who wish to develop and enhance their technical and compliance knowledge required to keep current within the life sciences industry.

Unlike face-to-face training, our products and services are available 24/7, on-demand and online.

Current courses offered are delivered over a 4 to 6 week period, providing flexible training to the participants and companies. Each training period is approximately 45 minutes of self-study concluding in examination and certification.

How Is the Training Rolled Out?

Courses are delivered through email with each candidate completing the content through self-learning.
Each training programme is made of the following elements:

  • Between 4 and 6 self-learning sessions completed on a weekly basis.
  • Technical tasks to be completed by the participant for each session.
  • Upon completion of the programme, an open-book exam consisting of 30 multiple-choice questions.
  • On successful completion of the course and exam, each candidate receives a certificate of completion.
