    Who would benefit from attending?

    If your job is maintaining a sampling system, you may not have the time or resources to come up to speed on the system. Achieving the results you need depends on deepening your understanding of the system, as well as fine-tuning the system for optimum performance.

    With the knowledge you gained from this course you will be better positioned to eliminate mistakes in your sampling system. Swagelok Training prepares analytical instrumentation technicians and maintenance personnel to catch mistakes before they happen and recognise existing problems that may be present in existing sampling systems.
