Stop Contamination in Your Operations with Reusable and Disposable Garments*
Instructor: Jan Eudy
Monday, April 30, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Human source contamination is the #1 cleanroom problem--the #1 cause of compromised cleanroom integrity. Therefore, specification and use of an appropriate gowning system is essential in limiting the elements of human-generated contamination from reaching and affecting product or processes in the cleanroom.

NEW!! Cleanrooms Won't Fix a Contaminated Product
Instructor: Barb Kanegsberg
Thursday, May 3, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 4:30p.m.

A cleanroom is an essential tool - not an end in itself. Critical cleaning of the diverse, complex, high-value products that are produced in controlled environments is a different discipline than cleaning the cleanroom itself. This course teaches the essentials of product cleaning, including final cleaning and cleaning prior to activities in cleanrooms.
