Curso de Fabricación de Acero para obtener Calidad


This is the first edition of this course, born from the demand of the sector, collected from the assistants to the course of "Hot Rolling of Long Products" among others, to offer training and new points of view to professionals in the sector. In these four years, we see that this type of course interests senior professionals as well as junior or recent professionals in the sector, since they find the opportunity to acquire new points of view on technical content, as well as new methods and ideas or discuss on how to analyze their particular case.

The course is structured in five parts,

Course: Good Distribution Practices of Medicines (GDP)

Cours: Bonnes pratiques de distribution des médicaments (GDP)

The Good Practices for the Distribution of Medicines for Human Use (GDP Good Distribution Practices) have a fundamental role in the quality of medicines and thermolabile that reach the European distribution network, Spanish, and finally the patient, customer or consumer. This quality has to be guaranteed, and for this, quality management systems are implemented following the guidelines of the European Commission, which depending on the role of each company or organization in the distribution chain, have a generic nature of their activities , or more specific and key, as is the case of Transportation. Whether the activity is properly drug distribution, subject to authorization, such as the case of companies or freelancers who provide transport services, or subcontracted services of another type, is very important, and in some cases mandatory to know and train in the GDP of medicines..

At ATEC+ID we have been working with both the Farma sector and the Transport sector for both consulting and training services, and we now offer this course to provide training support to both sectors and bring the different experiences that have come developing in the course of these first years of entry into force of the Guidelines.

TWI et In-Company Training


Training is key for a company to develop its activity without compromising quality, both internal and external, as well as efficiency in its operations and processes. When new requirements or opportunities appear, you need to make an effort to identify what internal needs, and what training needs or general training are revealed, because failure to do so would be assuming an unknown learning curve slope, as well as the occurrence of errors and inefficiencies. Do we really realize that we assume this?, and are we taking it for good? Do we know the cost is for both our personal and company reputation?

It is possible to identify real clear cases that have appeared and are appearing about training needs, for example the upgrade to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, the GDPs by pharmaceutical companies, and especially transportation companies, as new additions to LEAN Six Sigma and Lean, and we could indentify countless cases.

TWI (Training Within Industry) is associated with LEAN, and especially Lean Manufacturing in their approach to the need for middle managers with LEAN management capabilities, as these capabilities are different from the usual or traditional management plant. However, today there is a tendency to merge what is called In Company Training, or training in company with the concept or goal of TWI, to extend this idea to any middle management and even recently installed department directors, and provide training and assistance in adaptation to management styles, styles which can be LEAN, ISO 9001:2015, or others.

Ask us for In-Company training programmes, are certainly very interesting.
