  • You want to turn your validation work experience into a University Certification and charge higher hourly rates.

  • You want more Senior Validation Roles and higher pay.

  • Your work in Quality Assurance/Quality Control but have to sign off on validation documents you don’t fully understand!
  • You don’t want to waste your time or money on hotel or travel junkets.

  • Delivered Part-Time online so you can learn from home (or anywhere). Study after the kids have gone to bed.

Minimum Entry Requirements;

You must be able to answer “YES” to ALL of the following 4 questions for this “Certificate in Validation”

  1. Do you have a sound understanding of GMP rules, regulations and guidelines?
  2. Can you read engineering documentation such as P&IDs and piping isometrics?
  3. Do you understand IQ, OQ and PQ?
  4. Can you populate an IQ OQ PQ Validation or Verification protocol used in the BioPharma/Medtech Industry?

NOTE:

If you answer “NO” to any of the 4 questions above, you will first need to take our Equipment Validation Training Course (ONLINE) – For Starter Validation Roles and learn commissioning & qualification of equipment and systems and how to populate an IQ OQ PQ Equipment Validation Protocol. This program covers all the entry requirements above.

What you’ll learn – There are three 10-week modules in this 30-week program

Module 1 – Pharmaceutical Facility Design (Weeks 1-10)

In this module, you will receive a strong grounding in the modern pharmaceutical science and engineering concepts of the environmental controls (air) and clean utility systems design that underpins an aseptic manufacturing facility and the quality systems used in this highly regulated environment to ensure the manufacture of safe and effective medicines for the public.

Module 2 – Planning a Validation Strategy (Weeks 11-20)

In this module, you will receive a strong grounding in the modern pharmaceutical science and engineering concepts of the environmental controls (air) and clean utility systems design that underpins an aseptic manufacturing facility and the quality systems used in this highly regulated environment to ensure the manufacture of safe and effective medicines for the public.

Module 3 – From URS to PQ – a Validation Project (Weeks 21-30)

This is a workshop driven module where you will develop a P&ID and then back-engineer it into a URS (User Requirement Specification) which will be used to identify the key process measurements that will form the basis of the Performance Qualification (PQ) test script

If you’re spending money on an education program, make sure you choose one you’ll finish!

With every GetReskilled ONLINE program;

We use one centralized platform (Moodle) where you can log into your classroom. There you can get assignments and interact with faculty. Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities, and projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7.
We release only one week’s worth of material at a time and then MANUALLY check your activity logs at the end of every week to make sure that you are keeping up with your workload.
You’ll have a dedicated course leader who will email or telephone you if it looks like you’re starting to fall behind.

This helps us to spot any potential issues early and helps you completely finish the program.
