Why do we do Method Validation? What's the real reason to collect all that data, crunch some numbers, and print out some graphs and statistics? Is it just to satisfy inspectors, accreditors, and regulators? Or is there a real purpose behind it?

Dr. James O. Westgard, Ph.D. answers those questions in this audiovisual short course, which features a half-hour animated, narrated presentation on The Secrets of Method Validation.

Also included in this course are the following materials:

  • Handouts of the slides from Dr. Westgard's presentation
  • A Method Decision chart spreadsheet for download
  • Access to supporting articles about Method Validation

Participants have one month to access the materials and complete the final exam.
