GE Healthcare has announced the launch of customized training courses for improving biopharmaceutical processes. The new courses are an extension of GE Healthcare’s Fast Trak™ Training and Education programme offering.
The new courses can now be tailored to match specific training needs, and may be held on-site at the customer’s facilities to reduce travel costs and extend the training opportunity to all relevant employees in one session.
