Dear Forum,

In my company we used to make training models in line with PDA Technical Report No. 35 (2001) A Proposed Training Model for the Microbiological Function in the Pharmaceutical Industry. It was a valuable resource.

It is a retired document and the reason I found on the PDA website is that "it is no longer considered to represent current industry best practices".

I am not keen to present content which reffers to the retired document, should I say outdated.

Is there any other similar document which can aid us in the training program, what would you suggest? I for one liked this TR very much.
