Course Content

Instrument Training

Instrument Operation and Maintenance, including Trouble Shooting
This course is aimed at providing comprehensive user training on operating and maintaining your instrument, including how effectively to use the control software. Useful troubleshooting and general advice/tips on experimental setup will also be covered by your expert instructor.

Experiment Training

Experimental Method Development & Data Analysis
This course explains and guides you through using the Analysis & Control software to develop experimental Methods (e.g. for DVS: dm/dt criteria, sample size, RH profile; for IGC SEA: sample mass, appropriate probes, pretreatment, method set-up), including Data Analysis (e.g. for DVS: Isotherm & Hysteresis analysis; for IGC SEA: acid-base chemistry, phase changes, diffusion, etc.). Real ‘life’ data examples are used from our database of application notes and case studies to reinforce understanding.

Benefits of SMS Training

Our instructors understand your industry and can help you develop the measurements you need to take. They are instrument experts.

Our training is characterized by hands-on experience and interactive class discussion. Courses are balanced between lab and class-based interaction. This method of training pays off immediately because SMS courses are geared to real-world situations.

The SMS training course is delivered away from your lab or office, in an environment conducive to learning. Class sizes are limited, thus maximizing time during training.

Product and industry specialists, curriculum engineers, writers and instructors develop course materials as a team to ensure effective knowledge transfer.

Generous discounts (typically 20%) on training prices are applicable to Surface Measurement Systems’ clients who hold an annual service/maintenance contract.

Copies of all course materials are provided for helpful future reference. A USB memory stick containing all Application Notes will also be provided.

Surface Measurement Systems is a global leader in the designing and manufacturing of sorption and surface material science instruments to meet the needs of your industry. You will get direct training from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Learn more in less time.
