Course Description

Modern Chemical Laboratory training course will assist in keeping up to date with current laboratory operation principles and international guidelines, while at the same time stressing the importance of and providing valuable advice on the most critical areas of testing laboratories operation. These will include, but not be limited to, the areas of method development and method validation, environmental conditions, equipment maintenance and control, quality assurance of test results, measurement uncertainty and sample traceability, personnel training, internal audits, proactive/preventive actions and root cause analysis.

Course Objectives

  • Defining the role and objectives of their laboratory within an organization
  • Understanding the importance of quality control
  • Developing skills in method development and method validation
  • Improving skills in the area of equipment maintenance and operation
  • Realizing the need for data control and method documentation
  • Understanding the concept of traceability within laboratory activities
  • Being able to raise Corrective/Preventive actions and subsequent root cause analysis
