What have past attendees of The Code in a Day said?
We know online training doesn’t work for everyone, but here are some comments from attendees of the May 2023 edition and are shared with those individuals’ consent.
"The trainer led an incredibly engaging session, which is impressive when it is six hours of virtual training on a topic that could get a bit dreary. I now feel a lot more empowered to give recommendations to pharma clients with my improved knowledge of the Code. Learned a lot and would recommend to anyone working in the pharmaceutical industry.”
“Attending FPM trainings helps me to fill the gaps in my knowledge especially when this comes from experts in pharmaceutical industry.”
“This was the best code training I have ever attended- the trainer was knowledgeable, created a psychological safe space to ask questions, set the right pace through the day, and presented the materials in an innovative 'journey' format- which kept me engaged throughout. I've already recommended it to my colleagues who, perhaps like me, are (were) also feeling a bit jaded with code training!”
“The Code in a Day session was extremely enjoyable, very engaging, had a lovely relaxed feel about it and the mix of presentation, break outs, polling and lunchtime work made the time fly by. Probably one of the very best code training sessions I’ve ever attended!”
“I really enjoyed attending this session. It was very well organised and a smooth flow.”
“A great introduction to the code with practical examples of the code in everyday situations.”
