Over 35% of PCI staff served in the Military!
PCI is seeking technicians trained in calibrations and metrology. Military training in these areas tend to focus on similar skill sets found in civilian calibration training. PCI proudly supports and actively recruits veterans. We want you to know that there is a future in the civilian world for your calibration and metrology skills.
Why should I consider the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry?
While you have been serving our country, you have been calibrating equipment to a very high standard. Your documentation has been required to be flawless, as well as your ability to troubleshoot and repair equipment when a replacement isn’t available. In our industry, documentation is at the forefront of the requirements for calibration success. FDA inspectors want to see the document to back up the calibration, similar to the audits performed in your laboratory.
What else do I need to learn?
For starters, we rarely troubleshoot to component level. If something is not operating properly, for the sake of saving downtime on machines, replacements tend to be made available quickly. Being able to switch out instruments, calibrate them and document their baseline, all while paying attention to the operations around you are very important. Most of the time our calibrations are performed on a larger loop of instruments all working together. Our technicians need to learn how each instrument impacts another, and how that ultimately impacts the clients’ operations.
Another important part of training is learning about Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, and specifically Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs). These are the foundation of all our required procedures to conduct our calibrations as required by FDA.
PCI provides team and individual training, in the form of mentors, seminars, on the job experience, sessions with manufacturer’s representative, and many other ways. We know that to stay ahead of the curve, our technicians need to know the latest technology and understand how these instruments work to benefit our clients.
