From a Professional Painter to Product Builder

I’d recommend this course to anyone that wants to work in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturing industry and is interested in building a successful career in this area. The online experience is working well for me as I study around work and family commitments.

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

No Manufacturing Experience? No Problem

With two Bachelor’s degrees and 10 years work experience as a Health Care Professional, Aaron Bates had decided he wanted to change his career path. After some research, he decided that a new career in pharmaceutical manufacturing might be just what he was looking for. So, with the assistance of Springboard funding, he began GetReskilled’s Certificate in BioPharmaChem program.

From Semiconductor to Pharma Manufacturing

“Focus just as much on learning to actually educate yourself as much as passing exams.”

I found the course quite useful from that point of view – I was able to understand terms and concepts about what happened in a pharmaceutical plant. So when I constructed my CV it was useful .. when it came to the interview it was useful again to be able to talk with a bit more authority about what goes on and link it to my own background.

” The modules were challenging”

“The Certificate in eBioPharmaChem program that I took in 2019 will be my entry to a career in the Pharmaceutical Industry, the modules were challenging but my experience with ISO in my former job helped me a lot. I would like to thank GetReskilled for giving me all their support to join the Pharma industry.

There are different kinds of jobs in the pharmaceutical industry to choose from which will suit you.

It brings me back memories of 17 years of work experience in an ISO Certified medical clinic back home and a switch of a career with our suppliers to the Pharma Industry.”

From Optician to Chemical Process Technician!

Adrian now works as a Chemical Process Technician for a pharmaceutical company. He’s been doing this since October 2014 and it’s an interesting job that he enjoys. It’s also a job that he thinks is an option for more people than you might realise – his prior work experience isn’t entirely ‘traditional’.

From the Food Industry to a Production Technician

It seems to be a booming industry… it’s absolutely worthwhile investing a little bit of your own down time or private time to do this online course at home, at your leisure.

It’s worked to my advantage and I can’t praise the course and the people that run the course, highly enough because I believe without them I mightn’t have gotten into the position I was, as quick as I did. And without that course, I wouldn’t have progressed as fast as I did.

“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.

“I found the course interesting, challenging, rewarding and valuable”

Having just moved to Ireland, I was looking for a course that would help me upskill and also help me secure a job in the Pharmaceutical industry. This particular course has been a great help in achieving that.  The course material was very relevant and the course coordinator was flexible and always approachable for any queries.

I found the course interesting, challenging, rewarding and valuable. After attending the course I managed to find a job in a pharmaceutical/medical device industry straight away. I am starting to apply the skills that I learnt from the course which will be a great contributor to my career. I already have, and will, recommend this course to others.

“I got promoted from Production Operator/Process Technician into a Production Specialist.”

“First of all, I would like to thank all of the Course Leaders, Coordinators and members of Classroom Support who organised and shared their knowledge to this programme. I really enjoyed how lectures are organised. The online structure really suited me perfectly because I could do it in my own pace at home while working full-time. It was really challenging at times but it’s all worth it because topics are all related to my current role.

Having completed this 4-year Bsc Degree Course I have gained my confidence to climb up into a better position in the industry. I got promoted from Production Operator/Process Technician into a Production Specialist.

I am really grateful for the opportunity to be part of this programme. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone aiming to further progress their career in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.”

“Don’t give up, it’s not easy to find the time but worth it when you do”

“Completing this course with GetReskilled really gave me a great start on changing to a career in the pharma industry. For a self-employed person, the online format of the course really suited me as I could do it from home in my own time. The course gives a great insight into the pharma industry and on how to get a job in the industry.

Don’t give up, it’s not easy to find the time but worth it when you do.

I suppose as someone that has worked in painting for over twenty years I never really thought I could change. But even going through the application process for this course and completing it has given me the confidence that I needed.”
