Training: Working In A Laboratory

Available On Your Request

Two day course.

What does it mean to be a scientist or technician in a laboratory? Why do laboratory staff ask questions such as what is that substance and why does it react that way?
Since the beginning of time, man has been seen as an inquirer. We are always trying to discover new things, classify everything and to understand the behaviour of things. The ability to enquire is one of the most important assets a person in a laboratory can have. You need to be able to act in the role of an inquirer when working in a laboratory environment.
The idea of this course is to give an introduction to working in a laboratory. It is hoped that people become aware of their role and function in a laboratory environment. Whatever the function of the laboratory, it's most important asset is the staff and how those staff perform. This course presents people with the basics to become an integral part of the laboratory and assist the facility to generate data that are of high quality and scientifically reliable.
