How does Studying Online Work?

eBioPharma Validation
Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7.
Online courses can start off great, but staying motivated can be a challenge. So, you’ll get regular feedback reports (and emails or phone calls if you fall behind!) to keep you on track.
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 course.
GetReskilled Success Stories

Sharon Egan

GSK-getreskilled-testimonial-logo

“Structurally Well Planned with the Opportunity for Practical Application”

Like most of us, I had worked on validation projects in the past on a “learn as you go” basis with no formal training in this area. I always felt that there was a knowledge gap so I was both delighted and surprised to discover that GetReskilled were offering the e-Validation course.

I found the course to be interesting, structurally well planned with the opportunity for practical application of the course modules through various assignments.

I have worked in the Medical device/Pharmaceutical and Food industries and found the course to be extremely relevant to all industries.
From URS to PQ, this course provides the relevant learning materials and will help you develop your skills to master validation projects.

“Material was Delivered in an Engaging, Interesting and Supportive Way”

Having faced a career change in the middle of an economic downturn, I lost some of myself confidence and needed a major boost. The area of Biopharmaceutical operations and validation was of interest to me as it does play an important role in the pharmaceutical industry at present..

The administration staff and lecturers at Getreskilled/DIT are first class and the course material was delivered in an engaging, interesting and supportive way.

I have now been working at Johnson and Johnson Vision Care as Validation Engineer in Limerick and I look forward to put what I have learned into practice.

“I can Study Around Work and Family Commitments”

I decided to take the course with GetReskilled as I wanted to return to work and gain experience. I also made this decision as I like the fact that the Certificate is part of a Degree programme. The online experience is working well for me as I study around work and family commitments.

I would recommend this course for anyone that wants to make the transition into the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturing industry and is interested in building a successful career in this area.

The companies I applied for were very impressed. It demonstrates that I am a self starter and wished to improve my opportunities in attaining a promotion in the future. I am currently working in Boston Scientific manufacturing Balloon Catheters that are used in Gallstone patients.

Study all the Way to a Degree

eBioPharma Validation

eBioPharmaChem

Your path to a mid-career change into pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturing begins with our Certificate in eBioPharmaChem. You can quite happily leave your education after you get this certification, this is the minimum you need and it’ll get your foot in the door.

eValidation

If you decide, however, that you’d like to aim for jobs in the very sought after niche of validation, you can continue your education with a second course, eValidation.

BUT…

You’re actually now halfway to a BSc degree.

BSc Manufacture of Medicinal Products

Our eBioPharmaChem and eValidation courses are standalone programmes. You can study one or both and earn an accredited certificates.

If you’ve taken both programmes, you can then go on to study our eManufacturing modules.

eManufacturing is represented by the red piece of our jigsaw puzzle. You can how the 6 modules of that programme complements the learning of eBioPharmaChem and eValidation to make up the BSc degree programme.

“Structurally Well Planned with the Opportunity for Practical Application”

I found the course to be interesting, structurally well planned with the opportunity for practical application of the course modules through various assignments.

I have worked in the Medical device/Pharmaceutical and Food industries and found the course to be extremely relevant to all industries.
From URS to PQ, this course provides the relevant learning materials and will help you develop your skills to master validation projects.

“Material was Delivered in an Engaging, Interesting and Supportive Way”

Having faced a career change in the middle of an economic downturn, I lost some of myself confidence and needed a major boost. The area of Biopharmaceutical operations and validation was of interest to me as it does play an important role in the pharmaceutical industry at present..

The administration staff and lecturers at Getreskilled/DIT are first class and the course material was delivered in an engaging, interesting and supportive way.

I have now been working at Johnson and Johnson Vision Care as a Validation Engineer  and I look forward to put what I have learned into practice.

“I can Study Around Work and Family Commitments”

I decided to take the course with GetReskilled as I wanted to return to work and gain experience. I also like the fact that the Certificate is part of a Degree programme. The online experience is working well for me as I study around work and family commitments.

I would recommend this course for anyone that wants to make the transition into the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturing industry and is interested in building a successful career in this area.

The companies I applied for were very impressed. I am currently working in Boston Scientific manufacturing Balloon Catheters that are used in Gallstone patients.

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 can get assignments, interact with faculty and peers, reply to message boards, and more.

Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7.
Online courses can start off great, but staying motivated can be a challenge. So, you’ll get regular feedback reports (and emails or phone calls if you fall behind!) to keep you on track.
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 course.

Study all the Way to a Degree

Graphic of a jigsaw puzzle showing how GetReskilled courses work together to build a degree

eBioPharmaChem

Your path to a mid-career change into pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturing begins with our Certificate in eBioPharmaChem. You can quite happily leave your education after you get this certification, this is the minimum you need and it’ll get your foot in the door.

eValidation

If you decide, however, that you’d like to aim for jobs in the very sought after niche of validation, you can continue your education with a second course, eValidation.

BUT…

You’re actually now halfway to a BSc degree.

BSc Manufacture of Medicinal Products

Our eBioPharmaChem and eValidation courses are standalone programmes. You can study one or both and earn an accredited certificates.

If you’ve taken both programmes, you can then go on to study our eManufacturing modules.

eManufacturing is represented by the red piece of our jigsaw puzzle. You can how the 6 modules of that programme complements the learning of eBioPharmaChem and eValidation to make up the BSc degree programme.
