Biotility provides opportunities for educators to expand their content knowledge, empowering them to share their experience with our next generation of scientists. Our courses provide educators hands-on experiences with the skills, techniques and knowledge within biotechnology, biomedical, and bioinformatics curriculums in the context of working in the bio-industry. Additionally, our certificate courses allow educators to stay at the forefront of the field and be able to bring more specialized course content and materials into their classrooms.
Short Course Series for Educators
Biotility has launched four new professional development short-courses for educators (secondary and postsecondary) designed to integrate critical workplace competencies and skills into bioscience curricula. The course series includes instructional pedagogy and activities to anchor knowledge with workplace applications. The primary aims are to expand career awareness in the drug development and manufacturing pathway, increase confidence in the drug development and approval process, and to integrate workplace competencies and skills into coursework, thereby increasing the talent pool required to support rapid response and on-going discovery, testing, and manufacture of therapeutics.

What People Say
What past students think about Biotility
Douglas E. Rodriguez, PhD
I began attending Biotility training courses when I recently entered the local workforce. Coming from a research background in academia, the short courses were instrumental in accelerating my transition to the medical device industry. The training I received was more than informational, the knowledge I took away also helped improve my interactions with colleagues within my company’s R&D, Quality, and Manufacturing groups. I highly encourage all newcomers to the biotech industry to take advantage of what Biotility has to offer.

We recently worked with Biotility for Biohazard Training Certification and the experience was simple and convenient. Their staff was professional and informative. Biotility came to our pharmacy which allowed for more convenience for our team. We would definitely recommend Biotility to our colleagues.
Highly competent, thoroughly knowledgeable and well-priced, Biotility’s in-plant training was very well received by our entire staff.
We whole-heartedly recommend this professional team of scientists and trainers.

EigenChem’s team began attending cGMP training at Biotility in 2014, when we started manufacturing a dietary supplement ingredient. We have continued to use them for our annual cGMP training, as the instructors are highly knowledgeable, the courses are well structured and up to date, and are delivered in a friendly engaging style.
