Chemical Laboratory


Efficient use of advance operation and instruments in the chemical laboratory are very vital tools to solve any laboratory problem. The course provides basic laboratory analysis methods and troubleshooting techniques of most used instruments. Laboratory quality management according to an international standard is also important to enhance the laboratory system and laboratory environment. In addition, safety regulations are increasingly emphasizing the importance of management commitment and employee involvement in managing risks.  The aim of this course is to enrich and update the knowledge and skills of the participants for understanding laboratory technical, requirements of quality laboratory and procedure of safety methods.


By the end of the course, participant will be able to:

·         To give the principles of operation of key laboratory equipment and instruments.

·         To give the principles of reliable laboratory measurements

·         To outline key laboratory safety issues and safety measures
