Pittcon 2014 Announces Short Course Program

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

The Pittcon Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the listing for the 2014 Short Course program which runs March 1 through March 6, 2014. Short courses are taught by industry experts; range from half-day up to two-day classes; and include beginner, intermediate, and advanced level curricula.

This year, 51 new courses were added in the fields of nanotechnology, pharmaceutical science, data analysis, chromatography, lab management and analytical methods. The courses help laboratory personnel to understand current industry trends, prepare them for the challenges of changing environments and assist with achieving educational and developmental career goals. A number of new titles will be offered in communications such as grant writing and career building strategies..

In addition to courses in specific disciplines, lab management courses are a significant part of the program covering topics such as communications, time management, lab safety and best practices that provide critical insight into the interpretation of the requirements of regulatory aspects, global guidelines, and laboratory standards. New this year is a free short course, Lab Manager Bootcamp: Insights into Ethical Leadership, which will help participants gain a clearer understanding of ethics, show how ethics are a key ingredient in business and personal success and will provide practical ideas to help with difficult decisions.

Short Course Chairman Joseph Grabowski commented, “There’s much more value to taking a short course than the educational experience and the honing of current skills... short courses offer a unique opportunity to expand one’s network of scientific resources by providing a venue to interact with colleagues from all over the world working in many different fields.”

The deadline for discounted short course registration fees is February 10, and prices range from $270 to $960. For more information, visit
