General Information about SpecialChem Online Courses

See answer   What is an Online Course?

An Online Course is a 90-min event presented by industry experts. Last 30 minutes of each course are left for questions & answers. You can get personal advice on your own cases, when you register to the live session!

We're here to help you and your team to achieve technical excellence, adapt to new regulations and keep up with innovations. For this, we always adopt a practical angle – we only include theory when it’s needed to gain in autonomy & make wiser & faster decisions.
