Validation Engineer

Course Overview:
How do you replace paper records with electronic data and make sure the system is completely transparent, robust and tamperproof? And how do you store those electronic data records so that they stand the test of time? How do you upgrade the computer software in a manufacturing facility and make sure nothing crashes or no data is lost? In this course, you will learn how to manage all of the electronic data for computer system validation across a manufacturing facility.
