Education and Training Committee

Purpose: Work with Committees and the Board of Directors to identify education and training needs and approaches. Serve as a point of integration for training approaches with other national organizations (e.g. FDA) as needed. Act as a resource to identify appropriate training methods and coordinate the organization of training material developed by the respective Committees for effective educational approaches in support of regulators and regulated industry training.* (* Note: Technical training material development remains the responsibility of the subject matter expert committee.)
