Biotechnology Training

Biotechnology training is needed to fill the void between the curriculum of a theoretical education and the practical demands of - depending on your specialty - R&D, validation, regulations, processing, or manufacturing in the biotechnology field.  Furthermore, proper biotechnology training is essential due to the complexity and inherent uncertainty of using living organisms as production systems to manufacture complex, biologically active proteins.

As the leader in continuing education and accredited technical training, The Center for Professional Advancement (CfPA) offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date selection of biotechnology courses. Our biotechnology training courses - including 90 minute online courses - include discussions, case studies, and group exercises and are taught by top industry leaders who share their knowledge in an enthusiastic, interactive manner. 

Here is just a sampling of CfPA biotechnology courses which focus on technologies, applications and processes used in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and allied industries, these include both our online and in person courses:

The following select CfPA biotechnology courses focus on regulations and/or validation for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and allied industries:
