Core content developed on a pharma engineering project

This program was developed on-site by a team of senior chemical engineers, validation engineers, and biochemists working within an engineering consultancy during the construction of a new pharmaceutical plant to train its own engineers and technicians.

You will fill out a 120-page plus IQ OQ PQ protocol

You cannot reliably learn how to fill in an IQ OQ PQ protocol by discussing it abstractly!

So we will walk you through this step-by-step process and teach you how to populate a blank IQ OQ PQ template to qualify a Clean-in-Place System. The blank template is taken from the construction site of a pharmaceutical plant.

The protocol will detail the following elements;

  • Product characteristics – showing what your system is looking to achieve/produce
  • Production equipment – detailing the equipment necessary
  • Test scripts and methods – telling you the steps involved in conducting a test
  • Test parameters and acceptance criteria – defining acceptable test results
  • Test checksheets – documenting and recording the test results
  • Final approval – documenting that the validation process has been successfully carried out

This is a fundamental skill for any validation professional and a key outcome for this program. You will be able to take this completed and substantial document to any job interview and demonstrate your ability to complete this task.

Minimum Entry Requirements – You must have the following complementary skills or background

This program is highly specialized so you MUST have one of the following:

  • You are a plumber/pipefitter/pipe welder (e.g. high purity pipe fitter and orbital welder)  / instrument technician (i.e. you can interpret technical drawings, especially P&IDs and pipe skids) and you are fed up working outside on freezing cold construction sites.
    Or
  • You have real-world factory floor GMP manufacturing experience.
    Or
  • You have commissioning & qualification experience in ANY INDUSTRY e.g. Oil and Gas, Food Manufacturing, etc.
    Or
  • You work in Quality Assurance or Quality Control in the pharma industry and are worried about having to sign off on qualification documents you don’t fully understand!
    Or
  • You are a chemical / process / petroleum / project / mechanical, etc engineer or a laboratory scientist and want to move into a validation role or learn how to correctly populate an equipment qualification protocol.
    Or
  • You already work in validation (e.g. mechanical contracting company carrying out high-purity pipework installations) but have no formal training on IQ OQ PQ equipment qualification protocols.
