International Cleanroom Pass

Next ICP Course date: Friday, 28th April 2023, Ashbourne, Co. Meath.

This is designated as a basic course and lasts one full day.

The International Cleanroom Pass course is accredited by the ICCCS and is specifically designed for people at all levels who are connected to cleanrooms in any way. It is not restricted to those directly involved in cleanrooms or their operations.

Everyone that works in your facility should have a basic understanding of the operations of a cleanroom. It’s essential that personal from all departments understand the importance of a cleanroom. It may be the purchaser in the purchasing department or the technician in the manufacturing department but all should have an understanding of cleanrooms and how their actions can affect product quality.
