The course is a mixture of classroom and laboratory based learning activity. There are comprehensive lectures with a focus on hands-on training bringing you up to speed quickly. Class size is limited to assure you of the optimum learning experience and maximise your hands-on use of the instrumentation and software.

A unique way of financing the course can accomplished by using outstanding days on a current Multiple Instrument Plan (MIP) or University (UP) service plan. One day of the plan is equivalent to one candidate on a one day course. If you have an existing KRSS service plan other than MIP or UP you could finance these courses by adding further academy days. Alternatively a fixed course fee can be applied.
