  • Advance Notice Of One Week Residential Course - University of Reading 23-27 April 2012

    01 February 2012

    This intensive one week residential course aims, in a two year cycle to touch on most of the syllabus for the Mastership in Chemical Analysis, the statutory qualification required to practice as a Public Analyst. The course is pitched at postgraduate level and is aimed to fulfil a wide range of aims; it must afford the novice an opportunity to begin to get to grips with the subject matter of the syllabus but also enable the experienced analyst to discuss finer points of practice with experts. It is also viewed as a valuable opportunity for staff to update their current experience and perhaps consider further study even if not immediately intending to take the exam.
