We can run our courses on your site using your microscopes, augmented with ours if necessary.

We think it is important to have plenty of tutor guided hands-on sessions. These will be backed up with presentations to explain principles and theory as required.

We will also provide a short 'Audit' of your equipment to ensure we know what you have and what its capable of - you would be surprised what we find sometimes.

A typical one day course contains.
