REVOLVING COURSE CONCEPT: START WITH ANY MODULE POSSIBLE

Fees for participation occur. Please check the ‚Quick-Facts‘ section below!

In Today’s Global Economy, why are these Safety Assessment Training Courses important?

Product and material safety is mandatory for the protection of consumer health; therefore, a science-based risk assessment is requested and laid down for the different consumer product groups in many European and worldwide regulatory frameworks. Modern cosmetic products and their ingredients are often based on new technologies, while at the same time the knowledge on substances and products is continuously increasing due to new legal approaches and scientific methods.

Solid data on intrinsic properties of product ingredients are required, as well as on the potential occurrence of harmful contaminants and microbiological burden. This data and further information on the properties and effects of substances and formulations serve as the basis for exposure and risk assessments. The demand on knowledge and skills of product safety assessors is enormous and is constantly growing based on new scientific and regulatory results.

Quick-Facts

  • Start Module 1: 27.05.2020

  • Fee structure: €1,400.00 per module

  • Extra: Module 6 free of charge for participants in all 6 modules

  • Attendance days in 2020: All fully Corona-safe: ONLINE

  • Flexible Course Concpet: Due to modular structure easily managable in part-time
  • Revolving Course Concept: The Modules are planned in a thoughtful way, they are interlinked but not strictly consecutive. This means, you could start with Module 2, follow the further modules and then take Module 1 at the end. You would not miss anything, get all contents, just in a different order.

  • Achievements: RWTH-Certificate of attendance (upon successful termination). Based on the pre-condition of an available ‘diploma or other evidence of formal qualifications’, acc. to Reg. (EC) 1223/2009, Art. 10 (2), a cosmetics safety assessment can be performed and signed as Safety Assessor..

What is the CCE/RWTH International Academy’s Training Course Concept?

The course is split into six modules. Each module consists of four online seminars and one face-to-face event. The attendance days take place on the RWTH Aachen premises, e.g. laboratories, etc. or on the premises of the RWTH International Academy (seminars).

The content of a module will be presented in detail during the first online seminar. Online self-learning phases are carried out prior the attendance modules, and participants complete a written exam at the end of each attendance day. Each module can be booked individually. The participant will receive a certificate of attendance for each module. After completing and passing the examination of all 6 modules, the participants will receive the official certificate of participation „Safety Assessment for Cosmetic Products“ from the RWTH International Academy.
