Continue your education with PERI’s Professional Certificate Programs! These advanced education programs for working professionals offer additional specialized knowledge specific to careers in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Currently PERI offers four certificate programs, which can be awarded after completion of a combination of four core and elective courses. These programs are tailored to busy working professionals, as certain certificates may be earned totally online, and students have up to five years to complete the required courses for their education certificate.

These educational tracks are specifically and expertly designed to enhance the knowledge and skills needed for a student’s particular job function. The certificate documents an individual’s professional development and helps prepare them for future endeavors. PERI certificate programs are modeled after graduate-level certificates from colleges and universities; they do not offer certification.

PERI’s certificate programs allow students to personalize a path just right for them. Many of the certificate programs share the same fundamental courses, and this flexibility permits professionals to easily pursue a different program if their career path changes and evolves.
