Go to our Course Library and try the first training module of each course for FREE. This will give you a good indication of how training on ATS works. Additionally, we offer the Interpretation of Mass Spectra course, which is not run on the ATS website, but via modules available on our Chromatography Forum (www.chromforum.org).

How have the courses been developed?

All ATS courses have been developed in collaboration with leading training experts who have worked in analytical laboratories and understand the issues faced routinely through these techniques. All ATS instructors are experienced teachers and courses have been designed in a logical, modular way to ensure an enriching and progressive learning experience.

What format do the courses take?

Each course is split into a series of video modules (PowerPoint videos with instructor voiceover). Video sessions are generally 10-30 minutes in length, depending on the topic covered, and courses have on average 20-40 modules providing multiple hours of instruction per course. Each course is accessed online in an on-demand format, and upon purchase, you will be supplied with specific login details to gain access. For an overview of modules and instruction hours by course, do visit our Course Library.

Is it possible to track the modules I have taken?

Yes, once you have registered you will be able to access your ‘My Account’ section by clicking on the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Here, you’ll find a list of courses that you’ve purchased, and by clicking on them you’ll see the progress you are making on that particular course. We would recommend that users run through each course in the module order provided for the best learning experience.

Is there a way to assess my learning?

Each course, as well as having a video tutorial, also comes with a series of questions that can be used to validate your learning experience.

Will course completion certificates be provided?

Yes, all users will be able to download a ‘Certificate of Completion’ from the ‘My Account’ section once all modules of a course have been completed and all quiz questions answered correctly. Don’t worry, you can attempt the questions as many times as you like.

I am interested in analytical training that is not advertised on your website.
