In 2018 new training courses are offered by our EM Unit. All students now need to register for a day of EM training, which will be offered once a month, after which they select whether they need one-on-one training on the MERLIN FESEM or EVO Analytical SEM. After following the training course plus two semi-assisted sessions, an SEM Training Certificate will be awarded. Please fill out a form below to make sure there is a space for you. If you cannot make that day please don’t hesitate to contact us. Should you require training on the EVO for EDS and WDS, please email Lydia at lydiaj@sun.ac.za.
