Certification is based on an international competency standard, and an industry- and government-wide initiative to drive innovation and improve drug product quality.
One of the best ways you can ensure career growth is by pursuing industry-recognized certifications. Since the CPIP program is the pharmaceutical industry’s only manufacturing-focused certification, CPIPs are recognized as dedicated, competent professionals in their fields.
