Working in a cleanroom can be a challenging task if you are not aware of the consequences of incorrect procedures and processes. Typically, processes ‘drift’ over time, as experienced operators either become complacent / move on and / or are promoted off the shop floor, being replaced by less experienced individuals who have not had the same level of training or instruction. This course is designed to give a fundamental understanding of the controls around different classifications of cleanrooms, the requirements of maintaining the cleanliness of a cleanroom, how to operate equipment and the importance of individual behaviour. The focus is on ISO Class 5 (or better) environments, but the course also discuses parameters to consider in ISO Class 7 or above facility.
