Training & Development

As an Institute, an important part of our purpose is to share our knowledge through teaching. We do this through free educational YouTube videos on our own channel, and fixed or customizable training programs.

Videos
Our videos help educate those in the field of bioprocessing with short, hands-on demonstrations, helpful reminders and informed recommendations. Click HERE to visit our YouTube channel. We also create custom videos for clients who need specific training on any bioprocess topic.

Training
Our training and development expertise is always current with industry trends and will provide you and your employees with the knowledge they need to understand the science behind the products they use and/or represent. At your place or ours, all of our a-la-carte training programs enable you to tailor the training to your company’s unique needs and circumstances. Here is a list of the popular training programs we are currently offering:
