Course  Description:     The 5‐day Complete GC & GC‐MS course is built from the 3‐day Practical Essentials of GC & GC‐MS  and the 2‐day GC & GC‐MS Clinic courses to provide a complete training solution enabling you to  understand your Gas Chromatograph or GC‐MS instrument, develop applications, troubleshoot &  maintain it.     This course covers all the practical theory you need to know about Gas Chromatography and its  related techniques including gas chromatography‐mass spectrometry; gases and plumbing; sample  introduction like split, splitless, on‐column and large volume injection techniques; analytical  columns; GC detectors and mass selective detectors; data analysis; and sampling techniques like  headspace, SPME, pyrolysis, thermal desorption, purge & trap, liquid‐liquid and solid‐phase  extraction.     It also looks at how to choose the GC & GC‐MS techniques for an application, set‐up the instrument,  how to develop & optimise methods and then finally how to maintain & troubleshoot the  instrument, techniques and method. It also takes a brief look at advanced techniques to help solve  those very tricky applications including Selective Discrimination, Deconvolution, Two‐Dimensional GC  (GC+GC & GCxGC) and Chemometrics.    This 5‐day course is recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing  Professional Development. Members of the RSC will receive a 15% discount on this course if booked  at least 4 weeks in advance.  A FREE glossary on GC & GC‐MS is provided with this course!  Who is this for?    The Complete GC & GC‐MS course is for those who have basic knowledge of gas chromatography  and would like to greatly enhance it, learning the practical theory about all available GC & GC‐MS  techniques. For complete beginners it is advisable to first attend the 1‐day Absolute Basics of GC &  GC‐MS, as you may be overwhelmed by the amount of information on this course.    You can attend the 5‐day course all at once or, learn about the techniques in the first 3 days, go back  to the lab to implement the knowledge and then join us at a later date to attend the more advanced  2‐day GC & GC‐MS Clinic course.
