FACT Educational Opportunities

FACT's comprehensive, robust training and development program is responsive to the current needs of inspectors and organizations, providing extensive opportunities for all skill levels in all corners of the world. With a focus on real-life examples and practical application, FACT educational sessions provide tools not only for achieving accreditation, but for ensuring quality patient care in accordance with the Standards.
The FACT Training and Development Program is a multi-faceted program that provides a variety of educational tools, resources, and opportunities. It is designed to reach the entire inspectorate as well as a large base of cellular therapy programs and cord blood banks on a continuous basis. The Training and Development Program has and will continue to improve and evolve over time based upon current issues, needs, and outcomes.

FACT workshops are offered in conjunction with the annual meetings of professional societies such as the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT), the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT), the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA), and the European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), and industry-wide meetings such as the International Umbilical Cord Blood Symposium and World Cord Blood Congress.
