Free Online Training Sessions
During the current situation with COVID-19, while it may not be possible or safe to travel, attend events or continue work in the lab as normal, Bruker are sharing a series of free online training sessions to help you make the most of your time.
If you’re working from home, online training is the perfect way to stay in touch with the scientific community and make the most of your time while it may be difficult to continue work as normal.
There’ll be two educational sessions a day over the next few weeks, presented by Bruker technical staff. You’re welcome to attend as many sessions as you wish.
The online sessions will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday over the next few weeks, in the morning and afternoon. The first will be on Tuesday 31st March 2020.
Register for each session you’d like to attend on Bruker’s website, and you’ll receive a link to join. The full listing is available here.
