Azzur Training Center and Northeastern University to Host Life Science-Focused GMP Workshops

Azzur Training Center Partners with Northeastern University to Host Life Science-Focused GMP Workshops

April 3, 2023 - Burlington, MA

Azzur Training Center, an Azzur Group company, has partnered with Northeastern University to host a series of GMP workshops for individuals interested in embarking upon or continuing their education in life sciences.

Scheduled for April 19 - 21, 2023 at Northeastern’s Burlington Campus, the initial course offering includes the following workshops:

As the pharmaceutical, biologics, and medical device industries continue to innovate and grow throughout the Greater Boston Area and beyond, a specialized workforce is necessary to support ongoing operations and manufacturing. Originally founded in Raleigh, NC in 2020, Azzur Training Center (ATC) specializes in offering classroom learning focused on Good Manufacturing Practices in life science, complemented by hands-on experience in a cleanroom environment. ATC’s partnership with Northeastern University empowers recent graduates, industry professionals, and job seekers alike to gain unique, first-hand experience in the cleanroom environment.

Led by industry veterans, including Shelley Preslar, President of ATC and renowned industry leader, students gain actionable insights about the daily operations in a GMP environment from those who have lived it firsthand. With more than 90 years of combined operations and training experience, the team at ATC develop curricula geared at addressing the industry’s most common challenges.

Azzur’s workshops are intended for a variety of audiences, including:

  • Individuals interested in the life science industry as a possible career (students, people changing industries)
  • Employees of life science companies who could benefit from refreshers or hands-on experience
  • Construction personnel who build life science facilities
  • Architects who design clean manufacturing space
  • Real estate personnel interested in catering to life science clients
  • Anyone interested in learning more about working in a cleanrooms environment using aseptic techniques

“Azzur’s partnership with Northeastern University allows us to quickly and effectively deliver our existing Training Workshops to the Burlington area in order to support the immediate needs of the New England life sciences community,” said Shelley Presler. “The classroom, cleanroom, and equipment available at Northeastern also allow us to develop new training programs, which we expect to launch throughout 2023.”

Azzur Group has been operating in the Greater Boston Area since 2013, providing specialized GxP consulting and advisory services. In 2021, Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand™ became a member of the Burlington Area Chamber of Commerce upon the opening of their Burlington facility, which provides hybrid manufacturing space to a number of the area’s leading life science companies, including Moderna.

“We are pleased to see that the collaboration of our members has resulted in the availability of ATC’s training courses in Burlington. The partnership with Northeastern is a direct result of Azzur’s participation in the Burlington Area Chamber” said President Rick Parker. “It’s a huge win for our members and the community. With the addition of Azzur’s training solutions, the local life science community now has access to real-world training from experts with firsthand experience in the GMP environment. Job seekers, graduates, and students alike can all benefit from these unique workshops that offer transferable skills and resume-boosting credentials.”
