This courses is intended to give technicians experience in some of the chemistry techniques used in schools that are not covered in our other courses, most of which are only encountered at Higher or Advanced Higher.

It covers a significant amount of organic preparation with skills such as distillation, reflux, vacuum filtration use of a separating funnel, drying solutions.

We will also look at chromatography, standard solutions, melting points and more.

And we will also haave a session covering some of the trickier classroom demonstrations that technicians may be involved with: either preparing or carrying out.

Course dates: 19th – 20th February 2025
