As cleanroom experts, we also provide on-site clean room training.
This on-site training can be implemented in several ways.
We have done short courses, that largely involves lecture only in as little as one day on-site.
Depending on the number of people, a full training and testing class can take as long as two weeks. Usually, prior to actual training, we like to set aside the first day to do full engineering controls and certification reports of valuation. This gives us the ability to prioritize and Tailor the training specifically to your facility.
Going back to the isolator versus clean room argument, consideration can be given just to the length of in-service and training. For a clean room, it can take as long as two weeks, but for isolators, our typical startup and training lasts one half of a day.
When first launching a training class program we evaluate the number of people that will attend and what level of training the hospital wants.
One question we always ask during this process is who from the cleaning staff is going to be involved. Usually, that question gets a bit of a silent response as it is not generally considered. However, cleaning training is a quite critical aspect for clean room operation.
We usually recommend that pharmacy staff handle the cleaning of the clean room. After we go into detail as to why we often find quick agreement. This is due in part to the critical nature of the job in the amount of turnover typically seen in housekeeping. Considering that cleaning staff has to go through counting training and gloved fingertip testing, it usually makes sense to reduce the number of people that have to be trained, retrained and tested.
Since we will be traveling to your venue for training we usually offer and are hired to perform a number of facility compliance evaluations and resulting conceptual designs.
Typically, we will start with an as found model generated by what we will see in your clean room in terms of design, layout, equipment and behavior.
After carefully evaluating the as found version, we will perform grading and develop a conceptual model of what should be addressed and how that should be handled.
