  1. Rupali Roy

    Value for the fees spend. Had previously done a course with another institution where the pharmacovigilance was taught purely theoretically. But this course provided an understanding on how its is actually performed using Argus Safety software and using the software access provided I was also able to work on the software independently on the practical assignment cases. This course should definitely be completed by someone who wishes to get the practical understanding of Drug Safety case processing.

  2. Becky Cosgrove

    The course really helped me transition from clinical research operations which was a field job to pharmacovigilance case processing which is office based. My employer really valued the hands on experience with Argus Safety that I was able to obtain from this course. Personally would recommend this to anyone looking to make a career in PV.

  3. Sankalp Goel

    Good course with practical exposure to Drug Safety case processing.

  4. Trisha

    Very satisfied! Received access to the learning portal and latest version of the Argus Safety software immediately after enrolment and was good to go. The software included latest versions of MedDRA 25 for coding Adverse Events and WHODRUG for coding drug names. The access to the software enabled me to practice and become proficient. An industry colleague tells me that the software is very difficult to implement and isnt accessible outside the phrmac companies and CROs. The fact this institution is providing this access for practical learning makes my skillset now much in demand. Would gladly recommend this course.

    I have a very pleasant experience. Very nicely organized training course for a very affordable price if I compare with other trainers. The best thing is they provide 24/7 access to the software which was very helpful as I used to practically apply it after every tutorial. They have recorded sessions to make it more understandable. They have divided the tutorials in chapters format which made it very comprehensive for me. Also they have practical assignments to do. They have demonstration videos. And at the end of each chapter there was quiz and assessment. Though I had access to recorded sessions only but in case you have any questions I got quick response. I would definitely recommend to everyone who is willing to pursue pharmacovigilance career. This course is worth it & cost effective. Just go for it without any second thought, you won’t regret it I’m telling ya!

  26. Gosai

    This is a technical course that explains each and every field of Argus Safety in reference to how it applies to Pharmacovigilance. 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.
