Our online classes combine the immediate exchange of knowledge of a traditional classroom with the convenience and flexibility of online learning. As long as you have a laptop or computer with a high-speed connection, you can attend class at home, in your office, or on the road.

You must purchase a microphone headset and webcam to participate in our online courses. These items enable your instructors and other students to see and hear you during class meetings, enhancing everyone's class experience.

We use a synchronous, online platform since class dialogue and interaction are so critical to understanding quality and regulatory principles. Our online classes offer the same outstanding curriculum as our live classes at Fort Washington and are taught by the same instructors. To find out more or to ask for a brochure, email

Temple’s RA and QA graduate program is also happy to videoconference courses directly to pharmaceutical companies. Contact for more information.
