Baxa Announces 2008 Dates for STAR Center Professional Pharmacy and Cleanroom Training
Date:8/20/2007

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Baxa Corporation has published the 2008 dates for training at its STAR (Skills Training, Academics and Resources) Center. The STAR Center, a premier facility designed for cleanroom and pharmacy practice demonstration, is located at the company's world headquarters south of Denver, Colorado. Baxa Corporation built the STAR Center to provide professional education on pharmacy practice, cleanroom principles and compliance to regulatory requirements.

Class dates for the Compliance Tools and Aseptic Certification for USP < 797 > Course are being announced now because classes through the remainder of 2007 have been sold out since June. Each class covers 2-1/2 days of hands-on and classroom training, for 21 hours of CE credit.

The first class will be held on January 22-24, with subsequent program dates March 18-20, April 22-24 and June 17-19. Classes are tentatively planned for July, August, October and November; however dates are subject to change. The ACPE-certified training is filled on a first come, first served basis. Attendance in the STAR Center classes is limited to 20 participants to ensure resource availability, student-teacher ratios and hands-on experiences in the cleanrooms.

Current programming targets pharmacy and IV managers, providing value for any personnel who compound sterile products or are implementing cleanroom principles and practices that comply with USP < 797 > and industry best practice. Course topics include cleanroom physical design and layout, engineering controls and airflow science, media fill testing and principles associated with work flow, staff training, cleaning, monitoring, validation and documentation.

Baxa Corporation sponsors the STAR Center to further best practices in hospital pharmacy. The STAR Center brings together professional and industry partners to provide participants with a range of experience in equipment, technology and design.

The STAR Center was launched in fall of 2006 and regular classes have sold out each time they've been offered. Tuition charged for STAR Center training covers the cost of providing participant meals and training materials, ACPE accreditation and professional speakers' fees. Future class offerings are in development and will be announced later this year. Contact Baxa Corporation at http://www.baxa.com/starcenter for more information.
