The right CSV people, trained to the right level,
available at the right time.
The pharmaceutical industry, from API to final packaging, is struggling with a lack of available CSV engineers to validate projects and processes.
CSV Graduate engineering programme
Crest Solutions have taken a revolutionary approach by hiring the brightest and best recent Level 8 degree Mechatronics, or equivalent, graduates. They are undergoing an intensive 12 week course in multiple aspects of manufacturing safe medicines, commissioning & qualification of equipment, computer systems validation and project management. Thereafter they are available on a contract basis to fill the industry’s demand for CSV engineering resources.
How this began
We have found that as our solutions have become mission-critical, the requirement for traditional, short term go-live support has grown to a requirement for full partnership. Customers are requesting extended placements onsite in order to maintain seamless production operations. In answer, we grew an embedded engineering team, with members working on customer sites for extended periods. They provide immediate support and leverage dedicated, site-specific expertise.
Partners for validation
Further to the provision of embedded engineers, customers requested team members that would be dedicated to validation processes within their site, all the while remaining under the management, direction and training responsibility of Crest Solutions. In this way, our customers avail of highly talented, fully qualified CSV engineers without increasing their headcount .
CSV Engineers from Crest Solutions are fully qualified through a dedicated syllabus, developed in accordance with the key competencies required to deliver on validation projects. Modules are currently being delivered in the Crest Solutions Pharmaceutical Academy in Little Island, Cork. The engineers have each achieved leading Mechatronic Level 8 degrees from the country's foremost Universities and Institutes of Technology.
Learn more about the course content under its four core modules of:
- Manufacturing safe medicines
- Commissioning & qualification of equipment
- Computer systems validation
- Project management.

I'd like to acknowledge the hard work being done by the Crest team on site here in [N/A]. The Embedded Engineers have gone above and beyond to help us get Track and Trace projects over the line. I would also like to acknowledge their skills and professionalism.
I would like to congratulate [Crest Solutions Engineer] on his work. He is skilled and confident at his job. Not only was the line configured successfully, but also a few pre-existing issues were solved. He did a fantastic job and we couldn’t ask anything else from him. We look forward to seeing him again.
I would like to thank the team from Crest for their dedication and assistance.
The installation of our new vision system started this morning and we were executing OQ/PQ validation by this afternoon. Such successful execution within this aggressive time frame would not have been possible without extensive planning completed offline by Crest. This gave us confidence that we would have no issues during installation which was very much the case.
