What does it cover?
The ‘Introduction to Gas Chromatography’ On-Line Tutorial is basic introduction to the theory and practice of gas chromatographic analysis. It is designed to bring GC users to a more comfortable and capable level of proficiency in instrument operation, optimization, and troubleshooting. Lessons are presented in a visually engaging and accessible manner through narrated on-line video presentations. In full recognition of the difficulty in setting large blocks of uninterrupted time for training; the lessons are presented in short segments that can be easily fit into even the busiest schedules.
    - This course presents the basic processes and instrumentation involved with GC analysis.
    - The level of material is specifically designed for GC users without extensive formal training.
    - Applicable theory is covered to the extent that it helps guide best practices, method optimization and effective troubleshooting.

Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of the tutorial, trainees will have increased confidence and skills in using gas chromatographs. They will better understand how GC works, be more competent at detecting and diagnosing problems, and will be better at interpreting the quality of analytical results. In the end, trainees will be more capable and comfortable using gas chromatographs.

Targeted Audience
This tutorial is designed for users of gas chromatographs with little or outdated training, as well as those seeking a refresher. The course will benefit first time users, previous users whose skills have lapsed, and just about anyone seeking desiring to improve their GC skills.
A key demographic is companies who provide their employees with yearly skill set development objectives. Even though supported by management, fulfilment of these objectives is difficult to accomplish through traditional training due to scheduling issues and frequent work-related interruptions. The on-line tutorial approach provides a unique solution by being accessible from anywhere with internet access, and at any time.
The tutorial is also well suited to any students with a general interest in learning more about gas chromatography, including those seeking an alternate traditional GC courses.
