UTrain: Online HPLC e-Learning for in-house use

Mourne Training Services, the specialist in training relating to pharmaceutical analysis, has launched a new training solution: UTrain - an online e-Learning HPLC training course designed for in-house use. UTrain combines theoretical knowledge with practical know-how to provide workplace learning which translates straight to the laboratory. It is very reasonably priced and, with a standard licence, a full day training course can cost as little as £25 +VAT per person. You can try it out; just visit the MTS website to set up your free trial.

This short video summarises the UTrain package:

The UTrain package consists of three key elements:

1. Training videos are used to provide all the necessary subject information. They can be used either by an individual as self-paced learning or in a group training setting. The videos can be viewed as often as required by individual learners. Click here to view a sample of a training video.

2. Exercises and instructions for practical experiments (where applicable) are provided so that learners can apply their new skills. Detailed solutions for the exercises are also provided. The exercises and solutions are designed to be printed off as required.

3. The assessment questions used to measure the learning for the training are administered in an e-learning module and are combined with a review of the learning. A training certificate is awarded by Mourne Training Services on correct completion of all the questions. The certificate contains a space for an in-house signature to certify that all the training was completed satisfactorily.

All three UTrain elements are accessed online via e-MTS, our virtual environment for learning. The UTrain package is comprised of a series of modules, where four modules is equivalent to a full day's training. Individual modules may be selected to suit your training needs.

The first available UTrain modules together make up an introductory HPLC training course. This e-learning HPLC course is the best possible starting point for any HPLC operator to develop their knowledge and skills. The course is based on the MTS course ‘An Introduction to HPLC for Pharmaceutical Analysis’ and is recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development. Further modules on HPLC, including troubleshooting HPLC and HPLC analytical method development, as well as modules on the validation of analytical methods, will be available in the future.
