ABPI Code of Practice training

The ABPI Code of Practice is a critical document to understand if you work in or support the pharmaceutical industry. The 29 clauses are packed with facts, but our courses make the Code come alive. We'll use case examples, discussions and quizzes to help you understand the practical implementation of the Code.

What type of ABPI Code of Practice training are you looking for?


Our 3-hour self-guided eLearning course gives a great introduction to the governance, principles and key clauses in the ABPI Code of Practice.  It’s ideal if you’re new to the industry/Code and want a clear and concise introduction. £275 + VAT

Buy the course online in our separate shop for immediate access or we can invoice you.  Discounts are available for block bookings.


If you want to really understand the Code, the supporting advice documents and discuss and debate case examples, try our 2-day in-depth course.  Delegates are often aspiring final signatories or those who are going to be creating or reviewing materials.  At the moment we’ve switched this face to face course into a series of 5 x 2hr live online sessions.  Some Code knowledge is preferred in this course. £1,350 + VAT

Check the next course dates and book on our events page.

We also have 5 x 25 question multiple choice quizzes available.  These are not training courses, but will check your knowledge.  Buy the course online in our separate shop for immediate access or we can invoice you.

Team training

If you are a group looking for training, we run bespoke team sessions and annual Code refresher sessions.  Typical clients are pharmaceutical companies, agencies, MedComms and PR agencies. We are running these as live online sessions at the moment.  Contact us to discuss your needs and obtain a bespoke quote.

Monthly Code case updates

To be a real Code expert you need to read all the alleged Code cases which are continually published by the PMCPA.  Our popular Code case update webinars summarise all the cases – saving you hours of reading – plus you can discuss Code issues to see how other companies are tackling certain situations.

The webinars run every month and include a 10-minute monthly highlights video.  Access to these sessions is through an annual subscription.

See me in action

I recorded three 15 minute sessions for MedComms Network in March 2017, two of which gave tips for medical writers about the Code of Practice.  I had to stay behind the podium to stay on camera (not my usual style), but they give a great idea of my presenting ability.  Watch them on the free training page.
