Abstract

Both competency level and training plays a major role in pharmaceutical industries. Pharmaceutical industry employs technical people from various streams or fields like graduates and post graduates in pharmacy, engineering, science, management etc. On one hand, competency or basic education is a prerequisite for recruiting technical staff to perform assigned job, on the other hand, training the graduates from various streams is an important task for the pharmaceutical industry. Training and development is an ongoing or routine activity in pharma industry so that both the pharma companies and technical staff are up to date and meet the regulatory requirements as per norms. Even the competency level needs to be improved from time to time, like new generation smart phones, where in we need to update our smart phone to include new features or upload new software's. If this is not done, we become outdated. Likewise, in pharmaceutical industries, both competency level and training and development go parallelly and complimentary to each other. With regulatory agencies (FDAs) becoming increasingly stringent, both competency and training have become integral part of today's cGMP systems. Therefore, to make the technical staff more competent and well trained, this article gives a detailed insight into competency level and training and development.
