Course feedback

"Very useful insight in to what sort of thing to look for when maintenance required. Particularly consideration of carrier gases, we tend to focus mostly on source/column related issues but will definitely consider gasses more."  May 2022.

"Being able to hear from an expert in the field and see some practical examples. I was given a lot of base knowledge and loads of helpful tips that I would never have thought about."  Hollie Gillespie, QC Lab Analyst, NextGEN360 (May 2020).

Additional feedback from attendees of our face-to-face classroom course:

"A lot of practical information providing good starting points. [Instructor] very knowledgeable about all aspects. Very helpful, upbeat, and friendly."

"All the maintenance required and learning lots about different inlets/liners that I didn't know previously."
