IconBg_0000s_0002_PharmaSince 1994, top pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device manufacturing companies have relied on TrainSMART for their custom training and development initiatives.

Few industries are more regulated. Few industries are more complex. Few industries can make the difference between life and death for its consumers—on a daily basis.

From compliance issues and acquisitions to bringing a new drug to market, employees in the pharmaceutical industry know that continual learning is essential for career success.

That’s where TrainSmart comes in. Our roots are in Life Sciences. Prior to founding TrainSmart, our CEO worked in the industry for nearly a decade.

Our Director of Instructional Design and eLearning Development (GMP Training Specialist) spent 15 years in a cGMP pharmaceutical manufacturing environment.

So, it’s not surprising that in TrainSmart’s 25-year history we’ve done a significant amount of work in the pharmaceutical industry. Our work covers the entire spectrum of learning and development.

We’ve designed, developed and delivered hundreds of custom pieces of training in the pharmaceutical industry for sales, marketing, compliance and customer service teams— often implementing tools like Siebel and Documentum.

From custom eLearning to offering international Train-the-Trainer certification, we have partnered to provide learning and development support in all aspects of the project life cycle – from program definition to pilot and training for the end-users technology rollouts.

Because of our intimate industry knowledge, we help our clients determine the most effective delivery method to meet the everyday demands that pharmaceutical industry employees face.

While instructor-led training still plays an important role in the pharmaceutical industry, the fast-paced culture that is a hallmark of pharmaceuticals makes other delivery methods very attractive including “micro-byte” training ranging from 10 minutes to two hours.

Many of the solutions are not an “either-or” but rather a blend of instructor-led, virtual instructor-led, webinars, podcasts, eLearning, job aids, simulations and “case studies in a box”.

Because of our industry experience and expertise, TrainSmart can truly become your pharmaceutical training partner from day one – saving time, sharing knowledge and helping achieve your learning objectives.

TrainSmart’s industry experience allows us to “jump-start” your project, as your trusted advisor, we will share successful training strategies and creative approaches to achieve your learning objectives.
