Pittcon Add More Short Courses to Their Program

This year, 34 new courses were added in the fields of data analysis, food, industrial hygiene, life science liquid chromatography, lab management, and pharmaceutical sciences, polymers, quality/regulatory/compliance, and rheology.

Lab management courses are a significant part of the program and include informative compliance courses on the general requirements of how to get accredited to ISO 17025 and updates on IEC 61010-1. The one-day course, How to Manage a Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP), provides instructions on how to construct an operations manual to facilitate regulatory inspections and organize laboratory functions.

In addition to the educational aspect, the new regulatory courses can be a tremendous asset to attendees by providing valuable networking opportunities and contacts in the field."

The deadline for discounted Short Course registration fees is February 13, and prices range from $235 to $900. For more information, visit www.pittcon.org.
