WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will hold an information session Jan. 13 to offer the public details on a new BioWork certificate program the college is launching later this month.

Scheduled to take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Walter and Marie Williams Building (Room 111), the session will offer attendees highlights on the new training, which prepares individuals for careers as process technicians in biotechnology, pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing companies.

BioWork courses are set to begin Jan. 28 and run through May 3. Class will meet three nights per week, Tuesday through Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Room 229 of the Williams Building. The National Career Readiness Certificate is a prerequisite, and there is a $250-registration fee.

Process technicians oversee a number of areas within the production process. In addition to receiving, transporting and storing materials, they inspect and maintain production equipment and control systems. They also keep critical records on the process and product, and maintain company safety, health and environmental standards.
