Advanced Level Training

What is advanced level training?

We currently offer a range of courses covering advanced GC, GC-MS and sample preparation techniques, with advanced HPLC, LC-MS and ICP-MS courses to follow.

To attend these advanced courses you must have fundamental knowledge of the relevant base technique, whether that is gas chromatography, GC-MS, liquid chromatography, LC-MS or inductively couple plasma.

As well as teaching the courses below both onsite and offsite, we can give tailored and bespoke training and consultancy on any GC-related technique aimed at any experience level.
