Essential Knowledge for the Pharmaceutical Industry: The Production of Tablets and Capsules


The pharmaceutical industry is legally and strictly bound to fulfil the requirements of the European Union – currently Good Manufacturing Practices (EU-cGMP) as laid down in the corresponding European Directives and implemented into the National Laws of the Republic of Cyprus. These requirements must be embedded in the quality system of any production site, as a condition to obtain the legal authorisation to manufacture medicinal products. Continuous and appropriate training of personnel is a fundamental pillar on which this quality system must rest. 

This training programme will provide the essential knowledge which is required for personnel employed at the production site of the finished product dosage forms such as capsules and tablets. It will explain the technology and quality concepts in a manner intelligible to all participants, whether they join with or without prior educational background. Finally, this course contributes to develop a motivated and competent workforce who will be ready to engage in their daily task in a compliant manner.


By the end of the programme, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the operations relevant to the production of tablets and capsules
  • List the type of packing materials and the ingredients of the formulation
  • Identify the pieces of equipment and utilities which support the production activities
  • Express the basic quality concepts
  • Order the production stages into the correct sequence of events and understand the link between each one of them
  • Develop knowledge common to all personnel at the production site
  • Perform their activities in a compliant manner
  • Explain the manufacturing operations they are involved with
  • Show a good understanding of the basic quality concepts
  • Challenge any non-compliant behaviour or activity which may jeopardise product quality
  • Justify their actions taken within the context of their daily task in a logical and competent manner
  • Participate in technical discussion at company level
  • Evaluate the need for improvement at their production site


The programme is ideal for personnel at the production site of finished product dosage forms (capsules and tablets), such as:

  • Production operators
  • Production supervisors and managers at the early stage of their career
  • New personnel at the production site, such as:
    • Quality Control and Quality Assurance staff
    • Support Engineers
    • Prospective Qualified Person
    • Regulatory Affairs Personnel
