It was a great idea to include videos whereby some provisions of the MDR are explained via recording. I would highly recommend this course to those who are at the starting point of the MDR learning.

    Iryna Barouskaya | August 17, 2020

As with the other course I completed the general overview in EU-MDR course content was excellent. The delivery and breakdown of the material were absolutely on the money. I was particularly impressed with the amount of information offered throughout the course given that it is a general overview making this course definite value for money.

    Marie Ivers | May 20, 2020

  • This was the first course I completed with Comply Guru. It was easy to follow and the self-paced feature is useful. The support team is also great they resolve issues instantly. As a Health Safety professional I look forward availing of the resources provided by Comply Guru.

    Kateryna Anisimova | May 12, 2020

    Michelle Reinecke-Quain | May 2, 2020

  • The training was straightforward and easily followed.

    Jason Pigott | April 24, 2020

  • A very useful training to have a basic understanding of the MDR requirements. Surely suggested for people that has got limited exposure to the MDR.

    Alessandro Agosti | April 20, 2020

  • Comply Guru offer an excellent easy to navigate platform to complete online training. The EU MDR General Overview course provided exactly that giving insight into the changes for organisations and industry.

    Jane Scally | April 18, 2020

  • Well done The course is a good starter to digest the MDR.

    Gunther Burgstaller | April 15, 2020

  • Very professional polished. Excellent video presentations. I liked the quizzes particularly the fact that the structure of the quizzes varied in nature. I also liked the fact that you could expand parts of the course this allows the learner to tailor the course to their own level of knowledge.

    Angela O'Sullivan | April 8, 2020

  • I really liked the way the course was structured and presented. The learning material was broken down into bite-sized chunks and the regular checks to ensure you understood the content meant that you stayed engaged. The combination of recorded tutor clips and animations kept the content really interesting.

    Andrew Walker | April 8, 2020

  • Can regulatory training be fun This course was. I was kept engaged throughout and really enjoyed working my way through the content. The course provided me with a great overview of the new MDR. I would definitely sign up for another course and wouldnt hesitate in recommending Comply Guru to other people.

    Louise Barrett | April 7, 2020

  • This is a very intuitive and easy to follow program

    Carol O'Sullivan | April 7, 2020

  • I found the training course remarkably informative despite the relatively short duration. The regulation is a hugely complex document but following this course Id be confident to move to the next layer of knowledge. The course is marketed as an introduction to the MDR to be fair it almost encourages you to move to the next level.

    John Collins | April 6, 2020

  • I completed this course in one sitting. I was prepared to come back to it over a few days but found once I started into it my plans changed and it was easy to continue. That you can come back to it and resume from where you left off is excellent. Overall this is a well thought out and designed course. The module lengths are good and the quality of the information is well presented. The audio is well-paced and can be easily followed. The course deals with all of the key EU MDR points very well. The general course interaction worked well from screen to screen and the additional videos by the tutor are a great addition. It has easy to use knowledge checks well placed along the way to monitor your progression and evaluate your understanding. The target is to provide an overview of what EU MDR is about and I believe it does this very well.

    Tom Healy | April 6, 2020

  • I really enjoyed the course as it was well presented in a nice format. The balance of slides and course contributor was about right.

    Sean Cunney | April 5, 2020

  • All levels of learner is catered for and no unneccessary use of complicated language. Straight and to the point.

    Karen Conway | April 4, 2020

  • Good some computer glitches at the start.

    Martin Crehan | April 3, 2020

  • This is a great course. The use of videos and handbook make the course easy to follow.

    Melody Labrune | April 3, 2020

  • A very good experience overall with respect to content delivery and interaction. I would definitely use this online training platform again.

    Julie Whelan | April 3, 2020

  • The training experience was satisfactory as a tool to provide introductory training to a subject matter I could see this being used for health and safety and induction type training where test of understanding are needed and evidence of completion of training is required. I am undecided as to whether online training could replace classroom training for some subjects however as it does not support sharing of participants current challenges and the two way interaction and discussions that classroom training facilitates.

    Theresa Jeary | April 3, 2020

  • I really enjoyed the way the course was delivered. The interactive slides where you need to click buttons in order to obtain further information meant you got to go through the course at your own speed. The presentation slides and video presentations were short and to the point the information was appropriately spread across multiple slides without it feeling like a really long presentation.

    Aoife Gunning | April 3, 2020

  • With the current situation in the workplace online training is the way to go. This training is presented very professionally and easy for the user to navigate through.

    Brendan McKeon | April 2, 2020

  • Overall training with Comply Guru is very good and I would recommend to others

    Amy O'Mahony | April 2, 2020

  • I really enjoyed completing training online and found it very informative. I thought it was very engaging and that at no time did I feel bored. I also like the efficiency of this type of training rather than the classroom training.

    Orlagh Doyle | April 2, 2020

  • Very good excellent mix of content videos and assessments

    Brendan McLaughlin | April 2, 2020

  • its one of the better ones I have done online. The interaction is brilliant and keeps the user engaged. The explanation of everything was fantastically simple and understandable.

    Ruth Hyland | April 1, 2020

  • I thought this course was a good overview of the MDR it provided a basic understanding of some new terms defined responsibility etc. It would be good first step for anyone with very little knowledge of the MDR.The course did not go into great depth in any area and i personally would have preferred more detail in items e.g. IFU changes- what are the main changes or clinical data what are the main changes. This would then obviously have moved it to the next level of understanding.The online platform itself i thought was very good- the fact that the information was presented in different ways would help keep trainee attention and the ongoing assessment helps reinforce points- this i think could be very beneficial in longer course were its difficult to keep trainee attention.

    Charles Daly | April 1, 2020

  • I enjoyed the design and set up the explanations in the beginning were very good. As noted above I would have enjoyed a bit more information in a bit more detail. A very good course for someone new to the MDR trying to navigate the document adding just a reference to where in the MDR the information can be found - like financial liability of the auth. rep for example would make it fun for someone with a copy of the MDR while doing the course.

    Daniela ARCONE | March 31, 2020

  • The Training Program is very well designed. I thoroughly enjoyed doing the course. The sequence is logical. the assessments were at the right points.

    Dr. Anita Joshi | March 30, 2020

  • The content of the course is exceptional and is at the required pitch to satisfy this Managers and professionals who require an overview of the MDR 2017745 with respect to reasons for timelines relationship to existing MDD the transition period CE marking and associated requirements including Declaration of Conformity and contents of MDR. It would also be of great benefit to those within RAQAQC who are tasked with working in preparation for the MDR but who lack a general overview. This training is the ultimate one stop shot. I would and will highly recommend the straining to my contacts in the Medical device and combination product sectors. Well done I eagerly await the next offering from Comply Guru and their MEDDEV Solution Partners

    Brian O'Connell | March 27, 2020

  • Really clear delivery of content. Interactive user assessments work really well to keep trainee engaged.

    Anne-Marie Gannon | March 27, 2020
