Gas Chromatography (GC) Training

Introduction to GC

Self-paced online course with validated learning and certificate of completion

Analytical Training Solutions | Separation Science

The ‘Introduction to Gas Chromatography’ online course is a basic introduction to the theory and practice of gas chromatographic analysis. It is designed to bring GC users to a more comfortable and capable level of proficiency in instrument operation, optimization, and troubleshooting. Lessons are presented in a visually engaging and accessible manner through narrated online video presentations. In full recognition of the difficulty in setting large blocks of uninterrupted time for training; the lessons are presented in short segments that can be easily fit into even the busiest schedules. Upon successful completion of the course, trainees will have increased confidence and skills in using gas chromatographs. They will better understand how GC works, be more competent at detecting and diagnosing problems, and will be better at interpreting the quality of analytical results. In the end, trainees will be more capable and comfortable using gas chromatographs.

Intermediate GC

Self-paced online course with validated learning and certificate of completion

Analytical Training Solutions | Separation Science

The 'Intermediate Gas Chromatography' course is designed for GC users who have a fundamental understanding of how gas chromatography works and who are ready to develop a more in-depth understanding of the technique. As with the ‘Introduction to Gas Chromatography’ course, the ‘Intermediate Gas Chromatography’ course is organized into sections and modules. The sections focus on a given theme and the modular structure underneath exposes students to the information within time-effective sections. Upon successful completion of the course, trainees will have increased knowledge and skills in the development of gas chromatography methods. They will gain an understanding of both qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as expand their skills to encompass areas such as fast GC, and further developing maintenance and troubleshooting abilities.

GC-MS Training

GC-MS for Operators & Developers

Self-paced online course with validated learning and e-certificate of completion

Analytical Training Solutions | Separation Science

‘GC-MS for Operators and Method Developers’ is a specifically designed course for GC users and operators. Fundamental principles, when presented, are done so with a focus on the practical aspects and applications as might be applied on a daily basis. Those who complete this course should be more efficient and comfortable at setting up, troubleshooting, verifying performance, acquiring and interpreting GC-MS data. As with 'Introduction to GC' and 'Intermediate GC' courses, the GC-MS course is organized into chapters and modules. The chapters focus on given themes and the modular structure underneath exposes students to subtopics within time-efficient segments. This course is designed for users of gas chromatographs who are looking to further develop their method development and troubleshooting skills in GC-MS.
