By working closely with management to identify just what your employees need to know and why, we can create a program to deliver these insights in a way that specifically targets long-term company goals. Organizations can choose from our signature courses—core material from our extensive library of life science topics—or we can fully customize courses with completely original content. We have deep industry knowledge in Biotechnology, Drug Development, Medical Devices, Molecular Diagnostics, and Biosafety.

A nice to have is a lapel mic if the room is large and a table at the front of the room for the instructor
