    This Course is Aimed at

    This service is aimed at providers and employers who deliver Responsible Persons training. 


    One of the ways that companies can gain reassurance that delegates are being trained to a national level is to procure training that has been mapped to the learning objectives detailed in the approved industry standards.

    The Cogent Skills Gold Standard is a Competency Framework for individuals in the science based industries. The Cogent Gold Standards set an aspirational industry standard for expected levels of on-the-job performance.  Training standards that are derived from the Gold Standards set out the learning objectives needed to achieve those levels.

    Cogent Skills alongside the MHRA have developed a Gold Standard role profile for Responsible Persons in Medicinal Products which in turn has led to the agreement of a training standard which is recognised by the MHRA.

    Cogent Skills can map your Responsible Person course against the Medicinal Products training standard derived from the Gold Standard.

    In addition we have worked with Cogent Skills and are able to validate your training in a way that is recognised by the MHRA; providing you with the ability to give your delegates certificates which will feature the MHRA logo.

    Programme Content and Key Areas

    As the custodian of Gold Standards and National Training Standards for the Responsible Person, we are expertly positioned to map your training.  We can provide:

    Analysis: We will provide you with the structure to review your current training and demonstrate how it meets the learning objectives and competencies identified in the standard.

    Mapping: We will verify that your course maps to the standard.

    Recognition: Once we confirm your course meets the standard, you will receive a Cogent Skills certificate stating that your training content has met the standard.

    Certificates: Once you have demonstrated that your delegates have met the learning objectives, we will organise certificates for your delegates showing that they have had training that meets the training standard. This certificate will be validated with the Cogent Skills and MHRA logo.
