iLearn: e-Learning HPLC Training Course

Mourne Training Services is pleased to announce that our e-Learning HPLC training course is now available in a distance learning option: iLearn. This course introduces the important concepts of HPLC and will enable you to fully understand: the different types of HPLC and how they differ; the different types of available HPLC columns and how they differ; why there are so many different mobile phase components and the ways in which they are combined to effect a chromatographic separation; and how components such as the pump, injector, detector and processor are combined to make a HPLC instrument.

The course is delivered using our virtual environment for learning, e-MTS, and consists of:

  1. A series of training videos (totalling over 3 hours where each video is approximately 25 minutes),
  2. Exercises on which you will receive feedback from your personal tutor and,
  3. An assessment which enables accreditation of the training - It is recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the purposes of continuing professional development.

The cost of this course is only GBP £125 + VAT and includes a copy of our training book, An Introduction to HPLC for Pharmaceutical Analysis (which normally costs GBP £29.27). This is great value for a course which equates to a full day of training.

So, how does it work?

All you need is access to the internet. The training is undertaken over a period of 1 week. You sign up and select a week which suits you. Each day training videos and exercises are uploaded to your virtual classroom which you can watch and submit answers for the exercises. This allows you to access the training materials at a time which suits you within the 24 hour period (you should allow about 90 minutes since there are 2 videos, each of length approximately 25 minutes and the exercises should take about 40 minutes). At the end of each session feedback from your personal tutor and full solutions for the exercises is sent to you by email. The assessment is completed on the last day and a certificate is sent out for your training records.

Contact us if you would like to sign up for this training course or if you would like more information. Full details will be posted on the MTS website soon.
