How will this Training Course be Presented?

This Instrumentation course will build up in intensity, as it proceeds. Nonetheless, it is presented in such a way that novices will feel comfortable, from the very beginning. No delegate is left behind, and the instructor will ensure that all delegates are guided along the way, with personal assistance, we required.

The training course will consist of a theoretical component, group and open discussions, group and individual tasks, individual progress evaluations per section, applicable practical exercises, and a pre- as well as post-course evaluation. Delegates are encouraged to keep an open mind and to ask as many questions as deemed necessary, to ensure that maximum learning takes place. Preference will be given to applications that relate to the working environment of the delegates.
