Through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with EduNeering, Inc. of Princeton, NJ, ORA U is offering many technical competency courses online. The objective of the CRADA is to favorably impact public health by increasing the skill level and productivity of FDA inspectors and by improving compliance with government regulations in FDA-regulated industries.

Available Courses

See the online ComplianceWire course catalog for a complete list of all available courses.

Pre-existing EduNeering courses
As part of the CRADA, FDA has reviewed existing Eduneering online technical and compliance courses for adherence to FDA policy. FDA personnel will have access to the entire library of over 100 existing courses. These include such titles as Introduction to GMPs, Principles of Good Documentation, and Principles of Auditing.

All courses listed with a category of "General" are EduNeering courses provided for FDA use under the terms of the CRADA. These courses were developed by EduNeering to train personnel in regulated industries. Although we expect that the vast majority of information in these courses is accurate, they have not been reviewed by FDA personnel for consistency with our regulations and policies. Language used in these courses reflects the target audience -- regulated industry.

FDA students are urged to take "General" category courses as they keep in mind the industry audience for whom they were developed. If you find an inconsistency in the content of these courses, please e-mail your concern to ORA U at appsdesk@fda.hhs.gov. Please be sure to include the course title and topic area in which the problem appears. Be as detailed as possible in your comment.

Thank you in advance for your help!

FDA-Sponsored Courses
FDA and EduNeering will be developing online versions of existing FDA courses. The first phase of this initiative will include Food and Drug Law, Basics of HACCP, Food Microbiological Control, Basics of Investigations, and numerous other titles.
