Complete the Biomanufacturing Technician Program in 6 Months

In response to the growing need for biomanufacturing technicians in Southern California, BIOCOM (an industry association representing over 1500 companies in California) and three CSU campuses (CSULB, CSUF, and Cal State LA) have joined together to develop a new Biomanufacturing Technician program.

This program is designed to prepare you for an entry-level position in the biomanufacturing, biotechnology, and biopharmaceutical industries. By completing three 40-hour courses, you will develop a theoretical and experiential knowledge of biomanufacturing including various state-of-the-art techniques and processes, instrumentation used in biomanufacturing industries, research and discovery, and process development.

Upon successful completion of the 120-hour CSU program, students be awarded digital badges for each of the three courses and the entire Biomanufacturing Technician Program.

Ideal for:

  • Students who have a background in science, but no degree. This could include high school graduates or community college students.
  • Individuals currently working in the field who want to advance to new opportunities and/or higher-paying positions.
  • Recent science graduates who want to demonstrate knowledge in biotechnology to fulfill minimum experience requirements for entry-level job opportunities.
  • Underserved communities (e.g. individuals in the prison system, veterans, minority female population).

You Will:

  • Gain the necessary knowledge and training in the basic and applied skills of biomanufacturing, as well as an introduction to biomanufacturing careers to enter the workforce.
  • Learn from a wide range of industry and faculty subject matter experts in a meaningful program that prepares you to enter the workforce and is recognized by the BIOCOM Institute.
