Toward an employability Milestone

Usually in 2 to 3 semesters, students taking the following classes reach a minimum of 192 hours performing hands-on laboratory skills. Students who attend community college biotechnology programs and complete certain minimum requirements are expected to have foundational skills that prepare them for the work place. Lab Skills I is defined as foundational skills common to all laboratory workers.  Lab Skills II is defined as building on and strengthening the foundational skills acquired by completing Lab Skills I. Some programs have biomanufacturing, cell culture, and/or quality as areas of focus. Contact the program lead for more information.
