“This is a technical course that will make you known to every field of Argus. General rules of drug safety case processing are very well versed with examples. Since, I only had access to recording but any doubt that I had while doing sample cases in argus was responded back by trainer. They are good and very responsive. This has really helped me to understand basics of Argus. I recommend this course to any one desiring to go into pharmacovigilance. “
