The college strives to ensure that the ZTC and LTC designations are accurate; however, under some circumstances, faculty may have to adjust selection of instructional materials and this can affect course material costs. It may also be necessary to change instructors. Replacement faculty have academic freedom to choose instructional materials regardless of costs and are not obligated to use free course materials selected by an instructor previously assigned to the class.

Methods in Quality, Improvements, Investigations, and Audits
This course examines investigational methods used by quality assurance departments to analyze process deviations and make decisions about severity of deviation. Students learn to write industry-standard corrective and preventive action (CAPA) reports to conclude what corrective and preventive actions result from the investigation. The course also covers how a company would perform an audit in anticipation of an inspection by the Food and Drug Administration or for the supplier of a key raw material. Course content is aligned with the American Society for Quality's Body of Knowledge for a Certified Quality Technician examination. This course is open only to students enrolled in the biomanufacturing bachelor's degree program.
