What is a hands-on course?

A hands-on course combines theory and hands-on practicals with a 50:50 split. A maximum of 5 delegates can attend to ensure the needs of every individual are met and half of your time will be spent in the laboratory.

You can mix and match hands-on courses to meet your exact requirements, allowing you to bridge the gaps in knowledge you want to fill. See the full range of hands-on courses below or have a look at our classroom-based training courses.

If you'd like to attend multiple complementary days of our hands-on training courses, please see the Complete Hands-on GC & GC-MS, Hands-on Sample Preparation, or Hands-on Advanced Injection Techniques courses.

While these courses aren't a substitute for manufacturer-specific training, they are the best way to learn new maintenance techniques, refresh your knowledge or learn how to troubleshoot instruments.
