Medical Devices Training Courses

For medical device quality management, regulatory affairs or internal audit professionals who want to stay up-to-date on the latest updates to key medical device standards and directives, and who wish to get a thorough and accurate understanding on how the changes impact their organisations.

LRQA provides a range of medical devices training courses which cater to different groups of quality management personnel, and these can be delivered either in-house or as public courses.

Unlike other Notified Bodies, LRQA’s trainers are practicing assessors who have access to deep technical insight and context as a result of their involvement in the technical committees and associations revising the medical directives and associated harmonised standards, such as European Forum of Notified Bodies Medical Devices (NB-MED) and British In Vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA). This enhances your regulatory intelligence and helps you understand the latest regulatory developments in order to support your organisation’s long-term business objectives. Choose from a wide range of formats, including in-house, public, online, seminar, workshop styles, and bespoke training solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Our trainers are practicing assessors

All our trainers are practicing assessors, each with a wealth of experience conducting in-depth technical reviews of management systems throughout their careers. They understand your challenges, and are therefore well-positioned to take you through the changes and how they impact your organisation. Our trainers also use their assessment experience to understand your challenges, ensuring relevant course material. 

Ensure a seamless transition

LRQA’s range of bespoke and packaged training services support organisations worldwide with their transition to ISO 13485:2016 and MDSAP. 

Our transition training can be tailored to meet your requirements, allowing you to select the right training to ensure your seamless transition to the new standard. As well as training, LRQA can provide Gap Analysis, Preliminary and Transitional Assessment services to review, plan and help your organisation’s seamless transition.

LRQA is part of the Lloyd’s Register Group and at our heart sits a charity, the LR Foundation. Most organisations do something to make money but at Lloyd’s Register, we make money to do something. As a percentage of our profits go towards the LR Foundation, every time you choose LRQA, not only are you getting best-in-class professional assurance services, but you are helping to make a difference to our world.
