Rapid expansion of the biopharmaceutical industry and technology innovation have brought unexpected challenges to the workforce training. With the distinct digital transformation in the industry, e-training has become a promising solution to fulfill the soaring training demand and plays a more critical role in the blended approach. The AcceleratorSM e-training center provides a digital training and continuous learning platform that can be accessed 24/7, by a large number of users, to accommodate the training need.
Digital training platforms bring the advantages of accessibility to unlimited users, consistent content across multiple sites, easy to update content, and much more. However, they can lack personal interactions and communication, which are important factors for training effectiveness. How to format and deliver the training content on the digital platform is critical to achieve the desired training effectiveness.
On this platform, there are different formats of training content such as instructional videos, key process steps and check list, training courses, and knowledge checks. The training content is designed to be an easy-to-follow learning process in a visual format, as interactive as possible, to help engage learners to ensure training effectiveness and knowledge retention.
In the fast-growing biopharmaceutical industry, it is not only new employees who require appropriate training to meet current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) requirements, established employees also need re-training and continuous learning on the innovated technologies and methods. Skill gaps have been observed and challenges are faced by many companies. Insufficient training of employees in manufacturing operations can have a detrimental impact on manufacturing capacity and compliance, and time to market.
On the Accelerator e-training center, the training content is always up-to-date with new technologies and regulatory requirements. The visual format and interactive training content allows learners to conduct self-training and continuous learning at their own pace. Once completed, the training and qualification records are automatically saved and are traceable on the platform for cGMP compliance.
