Training Courses

Browse all our training courses by type:

Generic theoretical, classroom-based training courses with practical focus:

Classroom-based courses vary from 1 to 5 days and allow delegates to boost their knowledge, confidence and results in all aspects. The courses have a strong focus on the practical information regarding the techniques rather than the theoretical, which can be applied the instant you return to your lab.

Although there will be a use of 'props' (instrument parts and consumables) within these courses for you to get a feel of and you'll be presented with lots of tips and tricks, there will be no laboratory-based practical exercises within these courses. There will be questions or tasks throughout the courses to help you think through what you are learning, your brain will be tested especially in The Clinic courses, and we do endeavour to organise a laboratory tour for you to see the analytical instruments in action.

Generic laboratory-based, hands-on training:

These courses vary from 1 to 5 days and cater for those eager to combine theory with practice. They are a mixture of classroom-based presentations with hands-on hardware training within the laboratory environment and software training within the lab and/or classroom. Our “hands-on” courses all have 50% of the time spent in the laboratory using the instrumentation or software.

Manufacturer and software specific training courses:

These are practical and software courses which are based both within classroom and laboratory environment. They have a strong practical focus on a specific manufacturer’s hardware and software (e.g. Agilent Technologies’ GC and GC-MS), or working through written exercises or performing tasks using the specific software on laptops.
