It is very important to lab staff, Technicians, supervisors and managers to learn how to create the success in their lab. The course provides basic laboratory analysis methods for crude oil, hydrocarbon gas, and water. It is designed to provide an introduction and practical application of safety and quality in the laboratory. It is designed also to understand basics of lab analysis, how to apply quality standards, how to do health and safety risk assessments, how to develop the technical, and methods in the lab and how to evaluate the lab results.


The aim of this course is to enrich and update the knowledge and skills of the participants for un­derstanding laboratory technical, requirements of quality laboratory and procedure of safety meth­ods. With enable the participants to provide an understanding of the roles of the quality and technical performance in the laboratory. Provide an understanding of the roles of quality standards, how to develop the technical, and methods in the analytical lab and how to evaluate the lab results.

Who Should Attend?

The course is planned for, lab technicians, lab su­pervisors and chemists. The course is also designed for people who implement, maintain and review labora­tory quality systems.


This interactive Training will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas and will include;

  • Lectures
  • Workshop & Work Presentation
  • Case Studies and Practical Exercise
  • Videos and General Discussions


BTS attendance certificate will be issued to all attendees completing minimum of 80% of the total course duration
