The free HPLC training video featured in the June edition of Analyse This introduced the new, online, in-house training solution from MTS; UTrain. The first UTrain training course will be available soon. It provides a solution for in-house training on basic HPLC. Based on our popular course, ‘An Introduction to HPLC for Pharmaceutical Analysis’, it is recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development. The course is split into four modules which may be purchased separately.
UTrain is a comprehensive online, in-house training package which practically delivers itself! It is made up of 3 parts which are accessed through our virtual environment for learning, e-MTS.
The first part is knowledge transfer. This is accomplished by the use of training videos which explain the topic fully. These videos are available to all learners and may be watched again as required.
Which of the following two methods of learning do you prefer?

- Watching a video which explains the topic
Please take part in our poll on the top right hand side of this page.

Next the learning from the video is applied by following a set of exercises. These are provided as pdf documents which can be printed out and completed either in groups or by individuals. They include practical tasks where appropriate. The solutions which are provided for the exercises are very detailed, these are the handouts for the course.
A review of the learning is combined with an assessment in a specially designed e-learning module which provides a method to validate and evaluate the training.
Contact us if you have any queries about UTrain. Detailed information will be posted on the MTS website and on this blog in the coming months.
