Information

After this course, you will know more about GC than 80% of the professionals
who do GC for a living!

That is a bold statement to make, but it’s true. Dr. Polite has been
providing the finest HPLC and GC training courses for more than 25 years. He
has provided professional chromatography training to every major
pharmaceutical, chemical and petroleum company in the US. The reason all of
these companies are repeat customers is that the participants love our
classes, and their employers love the value provided by the well trained and
more productive employees.

This course is designed for beginners, intermediates and even advanced level
users in GC who want practical laboratory experience and thorough
understanding of GC fundamentals. By the end of this course, you will feel
comfortable understanding any modern GC. You will also be able to choose the
correct temperatures, flows, column length, diameter, film thickness and
stationary phase. You will be able to do all of this because you will
thoroughly understand each of these important parameters. The added bonus is
that the instructor makes it both simple and fun to learn. All of the
classroom instruction is reinforced with plenty of practical examples.

Every participant will have the opportunity to learn about building
calibration curves, developing complex methods from scratch, and optimizing
GC methods. No prior experience in advanced mathematics, theoretical
chemistry, or physics is required for this course. All you need is a desire
to learn GC. If you want to learn, we can teach you!

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for beginners and intermediate and advanced level practitioners in gas chromatography who want to understand how GC works. The lectures provide the fundamentals needed to understand the technique and instrumentation involved in this powerful analytical tool.

No previous experience in gas chromatography is required for the course.
