Custom Onsite Training

We offer our clients on-site training from all of our regional offices at a moderate charge plus out-of-pocket travel expenses to address all of their training requirements. We customize the agenda to suit the client's training needs and experience with the instrument and software. In most cases, the agenda is similar to those offered at our regional training courses, but the topics are typically covered in a shorter time. Thus a single day on-site training course is typically sufficient.

In addition to the agenda items, a full day training course will also typically cover:

  • Assistance writing analytical macros, test settings, test sequences and projects
  • Graph interpretation and data analysis
  • Hardware & software installation questions
  • Automation of analysis or testing
  • Calibration & verification issues
  • Test method design
  • Applications support
  • Data management
  • Review of client current sample handling & presentation techniques, and
  • Custom probe & fixtures to suit specific objectives
