Program Highlights

  • Take the First Steps to a High Paying Career in Validation
  • Become a Validation Team Member in just 4-months
  • Delivered Online. No Needless travel
  • Application Deadline: September 8th

This Program is Right For You If;

You have work experience in the BioPharma/MedTech manufacturing industry (this may qualify you for an exemption on the first 5 weeks of the program)
OR
You have quality, maintenance, engineering, science or manufacturing experience in one of the following:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Semiconductor
  • Contract Engineering Consultancies
  • Food Manufacturing
  • Mechanical or Electrical Construction
  • Plastics Manufacturing
  • Service Industries to the Above

You want to move into Validation and work as a Validation Team Member

This Program is NOT For You If You Don’t Have;

  • Strong Documentation Bias – as you will be managing and documenting the entire validation process
  • Enthusiasm for working in a Team – validation of equipment systems is a team activity and you will need good verbal and listening skills to share information amongst the team members
  • Good Computer Skills – there is a lot of documentation processed via computer systems.
  • Structured approach to working – your work will impact others in the overall Validation team as there will be many documents that require sharing and signing with multiple team members

What Does the Online Classroom Look Like?

How-does-Studying-Online-Work

We use one centralized platform where you can log into your classroom. There you will get your weekly program materials and assignments, ask questions, reply to messages, and more.

Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and validation focused projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7.
Online programs can start off great, but staying motivated can be a challenge. So, we check your progress weekly to keep you on track and we’ll reach out to you by email or even by phone if you fall behind!
Because it’s online, there are no long commutes, traffic jams or crowded trains to deal with on the way to class. Study at home after the kids have gone to bed.
Your working schedules are unpredictable so we offer flexible delivery. Slow down, speed up or pause the delivery of the program.

So What Is Validation?

Validation describes the process of creating an evidence trail to show that an action, process or system leads to a consistent and reproducible result. This ‘result’ is typically either taking a measurement or assessing product quality.

A Validation Protocol is a written plan stating how validation will be conducted including test parameters, product characteristics, production equipment and decision points on what constitutes an acceptable result.

IQ stands for Installation Qualification. OQ is Operational Qualification and PQ is Performance Qualification.

What Kind of Roles Would I be Suitable For?

Depending on your current work experience, here are some of the typical roles you could retrain into and the expected salaries.

Validation Technician

This role would be more focused on production and process, plant environment, smaller projects and equipment upgrades. You would need to generate a lot more reports and would be process focussed, have more job security and opportunities for career progression.

Commissioning & Qualification (IQ OQ PQ) of Equipment and Systems Course
  • Starting Salary: €30k to €36k
  • After 2 Years: €36k to €45k
  • After 5 Years: €45k to €50k

Validation Team Member

This role is more focused on working on capital projects, equipment focused, higher salary than Validation Technicians as there would be a lot of overtime associated with the role. You would also need to move to where the job located and you could be working away from home.

Commissioning & Qualification (IQ OQ PQ) of Equipment and Systems Course
  • Starting Salary: €35k to €45k
  • After 2 Years: €40k to €55k
  • After 5 Years: €50k to €65k
Commissioning & Qualification (IQ OQ PQ) of Equipment and Systems Course
  • Starting Salary: $40,800
  • After 2 Years: $51,000
  • After 5 Years: $61,200

Validation Team Member
