Cleanroom Behavior Course (CGC) – GMP

To make people working in a cleanroom aware of their influence on the air quality in a clean room, VCCN set up the Cleanroom Behavior Course (CGC) – GMP. During the course participants will learn about the strict requirements that are set for entering clean rooms. Participants will have the opportunity to see a working GMP facility, both on the cleanroom side and on the facility side.

By following this course participants will understand why those strict requirements are necessary. The Cleanroom Behavior Course (CGC)-GMP is a requirement for anyone who will have to deal or is already dealing with the stay or work in a clean room occasionally or intensively. This course is also an important refresher course for all clean room users and tests the acquired knowledge and skills for the conditions for optimal behavior in the clean room.
