FACT Launches 2024 Education Season

Posted in :: 2024 Volume 1 :: Friday, January 26th, 2024

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 2024 FACT Education season! This year offers an array of enriching experiences both virtually and in-person across the globe.

Visit FACT’s Calendar of Events to register for upcoming education opportunities.

The 2024 FACT Quality Boot Camp spotlight shines on Process Validation, where FACT instructors delve into the intricacies of developing validation plans and will cover aspects such as purpose, responsibilities, acceptance criteria, data collection, risk assessment, and summary of results. The day kicks off with an enlightening overview of validations, verifications, and qualifications. Participants will actively engage in developing validation plans for critical processes, including Bone Marrow Collection, Preparation for Administration, and Infusion, ensuring a highly interactive learning environment.

Our interactive Cell Therapy Accreditation Workshop takes a deep dive into FACT’s Standards and accreditation process, offering a dynamic format facilitated by experienced instructors. Through case studies and collaborative discussions with peers, participants will gain insight into accreditation requirements, positioning their organizations for accreditation success, maintaining readiness, and addressing common citations. The workshop covers audits, corrective action plans, and strategies for enhancing clinical outcomes and data management.

For those aspiring to become FACT inspectors, training opportunities await. Tailored exclusively for inspector trainees who have completed prerequisites, the FACT Inspector Training Course offers practical, hands-on sessions led by experienced FACT inspectors, simulating the actual inspection process. Covering technology tools, preparation essentials, common citations, inspection procedures, and post-inspection expectations, this course provides a comprehensive foundation for those looking to contribute as FACT inspectors.
