Workshop Overview

Laboratory analysts often move into these positions in a manufacturing laboratory without having any tertiary education in this field.  This course is designed to equip delegates with the knowledge and principles of typical laboratory methods found in the food industry, so that they can accurately perform these tests.

It outlines the purpose of the laboratory and the analyst in a manufacturing environment and the principles of various analytical and microbiological testing methods.  It provides tips and skills for problem solving within a laboratory environment.
