Advanced Biomanufacturing Training Program

This is the next course in succession to the BioWork Certification. With Advanced Biomanufacturing Training (ABT), you will be a step above others in knowledge level of biomanufacturing and increase your hiring potential! This course offers 2 certifications, Advanced Bioprocessing and Aseptic Training. Currently, JCC is the only college that offers this combination course. The course has limited spaces available for the class and spaces are filled on a first come first serve basis.

Included within the Advanced Biomanufacturing Training Program are the following:

  • Advanced Bioprocessing Certificate (ABC)
    Students who complete all 6 modules of this advanced certificate will gain knowledge in advanced bioprocessing practices, including safety in biomanufacturing environments, advanced quality systems, applied chemical processes, monitoring process variables in biomanufacturing, applied sterile processing, and applied cell culture. This course has been customized for current industry needs. The Advanced Bioprocessing Certificate (ABC) will allow students to gain the necessary skills and knowledge needed for advanced process technician positions in bioprocessing, pharmaceutical, and chemical manufacturing.
  • Aseptic Training Certificate
    This training course prepares individuals to work as process technicians in aseptic pharmaceutical, biomanufacturing and chemical manufacturing environments. The course encompasses gowning for aseptic environments, environmental monitoring, and product fill line operations. Students receive additional hands-on application training and become comfortable with the heart of biomanufacturing production.
