- Learn about image data handling and image analysis and appreciate the significance of AI
- Understand the design and built considerations of bespoke microscopes
HOW IT WILL WORK
Booking confirmation and reminder emails will send you the link for the live interactive sessions (held in Teams) and joining instructions. To join the session, you can click on the link 15 minutes before the session. Once the tutor has started the first session, they will tell you what to do. All sessions will use the same joining link.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
A good internet connection, uninterrupted time, camera and microphone enabled on PC.
ATTENDANCE CERTIFICATE ON SURVEY COMPLETION
It is now a requirement that you complete the three short questions in the survey you receive after attending the course. Once you have submitted the survey, you will be sent an email with a link to your attendance certificate. This is to ensure we receive the feedback we need to evaluate and improve our courses. Survey results are downloaded and stored anonymously.
Where there is no cost in the shopping trolley, no deposit is required. However, more than two consecutive non-attendances or late cancellations without good reason will be logged and may mean you cannot attend any further MSD training that term. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for further information.
