About the training

GMED North America has created a 2-day training session, to equip medical device manufacturers with the right strategy to ensure their Medical Device Electrical Safety processes can withstand heightened scrutiny from NBs.

This comprehensive 2-day course covers the general details of the standard and features numerous built-in knowledge checks that allow learners to apply and reinforce the new concepts throughout the training. Designed to build a solid foundation, the course explores key aspects of the standard including its general philosophy, scope, structure, evolution, adaptation for use as national standards, the use of risk management, and the requirements for markings and accompanying documents.
