Pittcon organisers have announced listings for the 2013 Short Course programme which runs 16-21 March 2013.
Short Courses are taught by industry experts; range from half-day up to two-day classes; and include beginner, intermediate, and advanced level curricula.
This year, 58 new courses were added in the fields of environmental, food, life, and pharmaceutical sciences; data analysis; chromatography; lab management; and analytical methods.
There will be a special emphasis on nanotechnology with courses covering nanomaterials, health/safety, and nanotechnology in life science. A number of new titles will be offered in communications such as writing grants, understanding social media, creating presentations and public speaking.
Another noteworthy addition for 2013 is that water and wastewater operators can earn contact hours by attending select Pittcon Short Courses.
For each hour of instruction, the attendee will receive one contact hour.
Lab management courses are a significant part of the programme and provide critical insight into the interpretation of the requirements of regulatory aspects, global guidelines, and laboratory standards such as ISO.IEC 17025:2005.
Short Course Chairman Heather Juzwa commented, “Short Courses play an important role in the Pittcon experience for our attendees. Our courses help laboratory personnel to understand current industry trends, prepare them for the challenges of changing environments, and assist with achieving educational and developmental career goals.”
The Pittcon exhibition will take in Philadelphia from 17 March to 21 March 2013.
The deadline for discounted Short Course registration fees is February 18, 2013, and prices range from $260 to $925. For more information, please click on the link above.
