About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

This micro-credential will prepare people to provide maintenance and repairs for affordable compound microscopes, such as those typically found in schools. Most microscope repair and maintenance training available is appropriate for very
expensive microscopes, but is inappropriate for more affordable microscopes. This micro-credential will prepare people to care for affordable microscopes in a way that can make a huge difference in usability and image quality. The micro-credential will also include things that should be considered in selecting microscopes for specific purposes or for purchase.
