Feedback from previous attendees of Virtual Classroom course

"I liked that it really was what it said it would be - absolute basics!.. This course started with terminology and equipment then went into uses and two company case studies as examples. Really well paced and good for someone like me who has never done the techniques - I have only ever heard of it. So the thorough introduction and explanations were really helpful to me..."  William Andrews, Lecturer of Chemistry, Belfast Metropolitan College (June 2021).
