Training on the Code

All training is now subject to government guidance on COVID-19

The Code requires that all relevant personnel, including those employed through third parties, must be trained on the Code. 

The PMCPA provides face to face training run by members of the Code of Practice Panel and online training (currently being updated) on all aspects of the ABPI Code.

The PMCPA offers a range of training options including:


The PMCPA has cancelled the Seminar previously scheduled for June 2020, following government guidance around COVID-19. We are following the situation and will rearrange the training as soon as it is appropriate to do so. 


The ABPI is reviewing the staging of the examinations for medical representatives, following government guidance on COVID-19. For more information on dates etc, email or

For more information about the Representative examination please visit the ABPI examination website.

The Code has specific requirements for Representatives, see Clause 16, including that they need to take and pass an examination. Anyone who needs to extend the time available to take the examination  should apply for an extension on the form to the right. Please note that it is preferable if companies do this, not representatives.


Temporarily postponed due to COVID-19


This free online training will not be available until after the next version of the ABPI Code has been agreed and implemented. We are sorry for the delay.
