The Intermediate Gas Chromatography tutorial is designed for GC users who have a fundamental understanding of how gas chromatography works and who are ready to develop a more in-depth understanding of the technique. As with the ‘Introduction to Gas Chromatography’ course, the ‘Intermediate Gas Chromatography’ course is organized into sections and modules. The sections focus on a given theme and the modular structure underneath exposes students to the information within time-effective sections. The ‘Intermediate Gas Chromatography’ course is a logical next step after completing the ‘Introduction to Gas Chromatography’ course.
Upon successful completion of the course, trainees will have increased knowledge and skills in development of gas chromatography methods. They will gain an understanding of both qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as expanding their skills to encompass areas such as fast GC, and further developing maintenance and troubleshooting abilities.
This course is designed for users of gas chromatographs who are looking to further development their method development and troubleshooting skills. A key demographic is companies who provide their employees with yearly skill set development objectives. Even though supported by management, fulfilment of these objectives is difficult to accomplish through traditional training due to scheduling issues and frequent work-related interruptions. The on-line tutorial approach provides a unique solution by being accessible from anywhere with internet access, and at any time.
