"Overall extremely helpful, well-organized. Appreciated hearing directly from the FDA staff about upcoming changes to the review process."

“I had no prior experience with 510(k) submissions. The MTLI course enabled me to learn the mechanics of such type of submissions in a small and informal setting. It was easy to talk to the instructors and the other experts from the related fields.”

"The speakers and information presented were excellent. I attended a 3 day conference on various FDA topics 2 weeks ago that was less than average compared to this event."

"I enjoyed the quizzes and interactive exercises. It was a great way to try and apply some of what we learned. Overall, it was a good experience and I look forward to being able to attend other MTLI courses in person or online."

"I am very new to regulatory affairs, having transferred from the quality system world. This seminar was really informative and helped gain a better understanding of the 510(k) process."

This workshop is pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participants RAC re-certification upon full completion.
