Training courses from MTS are designed with careful attention to every detail, however small. Our aim is to ensure that the learner has the best possible experience and we do this by designing a course that is informative and fun, is structured around suitable learning objectives, and appeals to a number of different learning styles.

Features of MTS Training Courses:

We don't just tell people what to do, we make sure that they understand why they are doing it so that they can fully appreciate the context of their actions and thus are engaged in their work.

The content in all our coursers is fully up to date with the latest science, technological advances, and both guidance and expectations from regulatory authorities. Course content is reviewed and updated as necessary after every delivery.

The transfer of knowledge from trainer to learners is achieved via lectures. These are designed to be interactive and attendees are encouraged to ask questions at any time. Each session concludes with a summary of the key learning points.

Examples and case studies are used extensively throughout courses so that the learners can see the training topic in action and gain understanding from relevant applications.

The lectures are broken up by exercises where the attendees work together in small groups and feedback to the class. Exercises relate to content in lectures and present an opportunity to apply the learning.

All courses are accompanied by high quality, bound books which contain copies of the slides used in the lectures, spaces for notes, and useful resources and references.

The course on method validation and transfer, and our e-learning HPLC course are approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the purposes of continuing professional development. Although the RSC may not be your professional body, this accreditation provides confidence that the training has been thoroughly evaluated against a set of very high standards for training programmes and complied with all the requirements.

Certificates of Attendance are awarded at the end of our courses. For open enrolment courses we offer an optional post training assessment to validate the training, completed online using the MTS virtual learning environment, e-MTS. Successful completion leads to a Certificate of Training being awarded. For in-house courses, the organiser can choose whether to make the assessment optional or mandatory.

Post training support is available via email for all learners so that questions which occur when the learning is put into practice can be answered by the trainer.

Let us help you with your problems!

Attendees on all MTS courses are encouraged to bring along examples of problems, challenges etc. which may be relevant for discussion during the training. Consideration of real examples which have relevance to the learners will aid understanding and retention of information.

We recognise that the details of technical product related problems may involve intellectual property. In the case of open enrolment training, private discussions may be arranged to discuss particular issues. For on-site training, a confidentiality agreement can be arranged to allow open discussion.

Training at Your Site

Our on-site training courses are ideal when training is required for a group of learners. It also allows the customisation of the content to result in a tailored course to suit your needs. The full list of currently available courses is available on our Course List. These may be modified to suit your requirements or brand new material can be developed. Contact us with your on-site training enquiry.

Benefits of On-Site Training Include:

Customisation of existing MTS off-the-shelf courses to suit the customer needs, or development of completely new content and training materials, as required.

The examples and case studies can be selected from real scenarios in the company which will help to make the training more meaningful, relevant and immediately applicable.

Training a group together at the same time is a great way to ensure consistency and enables meaningful discussion and resolution of issues post training.

Intellectual property considerations which can limit free discussion do not apply. MTS is happy to enter into a confidentiality agreement to enable this.

Hands-on training involving laboratory equipment and/or software can be incorporated into the training making it easier to apply the learning post training.

More cost effective than open enrolment training when there is a group of learners.

No additional expenses associated with travel and accommodation are incurred for the delegates.

Open Enrolment Training

Open enrolment training means that anyone can book on the course and attend. These events are run at external locations, usually conference centres and hotels. Our open enrolment courses are ideal when there is a single delegate or small numbers of delegates who wish to attend the course. The full list of currently available open enrolment courses is available on our Course List page.

Benefits of open enrolment include:

More cost effective than on-site training for small numbers of delegates.

Off-site location means that there is a lower chance of distractions from the workplace during training.

Opportunity to network with attendees from other companies who have similar interests.

Insight may be gained from the problems and discussions initiated by other attendees.

MTS Training Course Venues

The venues used for our open enrolment courses have been carefully selected to offer comfortable surroundings which are conducive to learning, combined with excellent support from the venue staff to ensure that the training runs smoothly. Delicious food (to suit your dietary requirements) and ample refreshments help to keep attendees energised. All the venues have good transport links, they are accessible by public transport and near to airports. The venues all offer accommodation but there is also a good choice of alternative hotels nearby in all three locations.
