Fedegari Group cooperates with Jim Agalloco since years. This collaboration helped us in sharing experiences and knowledge with operators and players of phram industry not only in the US but worldwide.

For this reason, Fedegari is glad to introduce you the fall session of Agalloco & Associates training offerings.

The fall session is composed of two different courses::

  • Sterilization: Principles & Validation
  • Aseptic Processing: Compliance & Technology

People can take either course, but Fedegari suggests to attend both.

Who should attend?

These courses are intended for individuals working with sterilization, aseptic processing or process validation. Experienced individuals will refine their knowledge through interaction with industry experts. Those without a strong background will learn the basics and develop an understanding of the more advanced considerations. The courses are appropriate for personnel working in QA/QC, regulatory affairs, R&D, production, engineering, process development, validation and microbiology.

Course Description
