The judges were extremely impressed with our forefront position in training and CPD approval with the Royal Society of Chemistry. One judge said 'their fantastic supplier services and commitment to excellence are noteworthy, making them a top supplier choice.' Our experience with providing bespoke Gas Chromatography- mass Spectrometry training in Iraq on behalf of the United Nations, resulting in a huge increase of productivity in the labs of the Iraqi Forensic Service.
Back at the Lab Awards 2021 Anthias Consulting won awards for ‘Most Impactful Online or Print Training Resource’ and ‘Most Impactful F2F Training’ and this is further recognition for their consistent high standards.
