BioNetwork's mobile training unit delivered to Winston-Salem
Soon, that equipment can come to you. The BioNetwork Pharmaceutical Center's mobile training unit, a 42-foot tractor trailer-style mobile laboratory, was delivered this week to the Winston-Salem center and should be up and running by mid-June.
Many companies lack the resources to send all of their employees away for training, says Doug Drabble, director of BioNetwork, the state community college network’s biotech training organization. The organization already has about six companies wanting to schedule training on the mobile unit and the unit is set to appear in at least three events this year, Drabble says.
The unit can train 16 people on high-skill tasks and biotech equipment. It may be set up at a location for several days and be able to train hundreds of employees before moving on.
