Who should attend

This course is intended for all laboratory staff; Chemists, Analysts, QA/QC and Lab Technicians, R&D, Scientists and other lab technical staff.

About the 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 behavior 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.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • To provide laboratory staff with knowledge and skills of methods on laboratory through overview of laboratory procedure, quality control, technology, analysis and best practices.
  • To exercise total quality management in producing reliable, consistent and independent results and on-time to their customers
  • To emphasize on equipment calibration and maintenance as part of the quality assurance and quality control procedures.
  • To prepare and handle Sample for different Analytical Instrumentations
  • To understand, use, maintain and troubleshoot of key laboratory equipments
  • To Understand the various techniques of Analytical Measurements
  • To develop effective communication and interpersonal skills among lab personnel
  • To Exercise Gas and sulfur Composition
  • To Study the Scale and Sludge schema
  • To develop the interpretation of troubleshooting analysis
