Free subscriber face-to-face training - The MSSO provides free classroom training in a variety of locations to support users around the world.

The ICH MedDRA Management Board also realizes that organizations may need additional training and has required that MSSO provides purchasable services to meet all users’ needs:
Fee-based onsite training - If you have more than just one or two staff to train, you may want to consider the option of onsite training. An MSSO trainer comes to your organization’s site and uses the same training materials as the free face-to-face training described above.
