What Past participants said about this course:
- “Very informative [you] provide basic knowledge along with good background information that will allow me to make a positive impact on my facility.”
- “Great two day class, lots of good info, but real life examples were best.”
- “A very well done course. I would recommend it to anyone. As a BSL3 user who worked in the lab & didn’t care how it worked, to now being an operations manager for a BSL3 and needing to know how it works, this class was perfect for helping to learn more about how the labs work.”
