At LabVantage, we are firm believers in the importance of training & ongoing education. While developing a cutting edge LIMS platform is important, ensuring our customers can maximize their use of the software is equally as important – if not more important.

Why LIMS Training?
LIMS training is important for a number of reasons. Whether it’s learning how best to configure your LIMS for an efficient startup or providing key users of your system the knowledge they need to maximize its daily use, training is a key element to both a successful implementation and effective continuing daily use of your LIMS.

Since no two LabVantage clients have the same LIMS configuration, the ability to modify the system to meet specific company or organization needs & workflows is central to your success. Training provides the necessary knowledgebase for you to tailor your LIMS as well as leverage its full capabilities – from initial setup to data acquisition to routine reporting.

We first launched our training program sixteen years ago, in 1992. Since then, we’ve adopted new learning techniques and technologies, and fine-tuned our content & curriculum to keep you abreast of LIMS best practices.

Today, LabVantage offers a wide variety of training courses to our customers.  (If you have questions about your eligibility to attend, please contact us.) Courses are available at our offices in Somerset, NJ, USA or at a training facility in San Diego, CA. We also offer virtual classrooms which simulate a physical classroom environment, as well as eLearning modules.
