Instructor-Led Training 


Our Regional Training Centers, located in many countries across Europe, organize training courses and workshops in local language on a regular basis. Our Belgium-based European Training Center offers training courses on high-end sorters and analyzers.

  • Every training is organized more than once a year so that you can choose which date fits your calendar the best.
  • The length of our courses varies from 1 day to maximum 4,5 days.
  • For optimal learning and interaction with the instructors, we limit the size of the groups to six participants.
  • During our training courses, theory is always alternated with practice. Exercises are performed in small groups with a maximum of two persons per instrument.


Some of our courses can be delivered as a virtual class. Staying in your facility, using your instrument, up to two members of your laboratory will be remotely connected to one trainer. Practical sessions on the instrument will alternate with real time presentations, videos, discussion and self-paced practice.


To view courses and schedules offered in our Training Centers and virtually, please access our learning portal Learning@BD by selecting your country in the list above.
