We have worked with BioPharmachem Skillnet Training since 2007 and have always been extremely happy with the level of service and training they provide. Relevant courses are readily available and the BioPharmaChem team readily source and arrange technical training for us which meets the needs of our business. We use the BioPharmaChem Skillnet  for pc skills and  industry specific training and have also hosted many training days here at our site with learners from other pharmaceutical companies and unemployed people.

Working in a busy environment, it has been invaluable to be able to hand over the organisation of a course to BioPharmaChem Skillnet AND get top class trainers at a great cost.  It really is a no brainer for me.

Perigord has have always had a good experience in working with BioPharmaChem Skillnet. The range of courses on offer is always relevant and booking the courses has always been straight-forward. The other big advantage of BioPharmaChem Skillnet is that there are like-minded companies and individuals on the courses so not only do you cover the course content but you also get to see how the knowledge may be applied in other companies.

As a company we have interacted with BioPharmaChem Skillnet on a regular basis both in the sourcing of courses to fulfil our training requirement over numerous disciplines and booking individual courses. I have always found them to be professional, knowledgeable and courteous in dealing with any queries.

There are two main benefits to Janssen Pharmaceutical as a member of BioPharmaChem Skillnet, the first is being part of a steering group that meets on a regular basis, we can share our experiences with the other Pharma companies. Through the many meetings and workshops organised through BioPharmaChem Skillnet we are in a position to discuss the best training practices in Good Manufacturing, Environment, Health and Safety and Continuous people development.  Discovering new ways of training our Employees helps us to set new standards within the industry. The second area is being able to tap into a one stop shop for scheduling training courses, a reliable service where we know Vendors have been endorsed by our peer companies and approved by the Network, resulting in a high quality of training delivery.

We have been using BioPharmaChem Skillnet for a number of years now, for us, this is the best way to source the right type of course for our type of industry. The courses are always of high standard. The learning gained from our employee's is always well used and related to the work place. It is a very efficient way to network with all the other pharmaceutical companies. One of the benefits of the Skillnet group is benchmarking and agreeing best practice on problematic topics. We find that it is beneficial from a budget perspective to share in some courses with other pharmaceutical companies; this works well and is executed by the diligent managers of the network.

The company has used the BioPharmaChem Skillnet network now for a number of years in relation to booking and requesting certain type courses to suit.  It is a very user friendly site with the network focusing delivery of training in response to the changing needs of the pharma industry.

I cannot talk highly enough of the BioPharmaChem Skillnet network. Through this network of like-minded professionals we have gained huge insight into the Pharma / Chemical industry. We have shared our best practices, our new ideas, our best training insights and made many great contacts. I have no doubt that these contacts continue to share information and ideas which only go to strengthen our competitiveness as a hub in Ireland for all stakeholders. Sharing innovation strengthens us all.
We have maximized our efficiencies in the training arena by sharing the best trainers, developing the best training packages and pooling our training candidates to ensure maximum participation and training programs to be progressed without delays. There continues to be huge opportunities in this network and the more companies get involved the stronger we become, the greater the savings and increased cost competitiveness and the continuation of developing of our teams at minimal cost during these difficult and challenging times for all sectors of our industry.
