About the course

This course is designed for users of the M4 Tornado with a focus on the geosciences. It is intended for intermediate and advanced users. Participants will receive four days of personalized hands-on training on the fundamentals of micro-XRF, in-depth software training, preventative maintenance, geoscience sample preparation, and more. It will provide practical use of the equipment and software.  We will also introduce and use AMICS, Bruker’s mXRF automated mineral analysis software, and XMethod, our software for creating individual standardized quantification calibrations.

The course will be tailored to the individual registrants' applications. Participants will be encouraged to bring samples and example data.  In addition, ample time for interaction with other participants provides a unique opportunity to exchange important technical information and methods.

Participants should contact the course instructor in advance to discuss samples or to convey specific requests of applications to be covered.

This training will be conducted in English, so attendees should have strong English skills. 

Monday-Wednesday, 9am - 4:30pm
(last hour of class will be devoted to answering questions and running samples)

Thursday, 9am - Noon 

Attendance Fee

The course fee is $2,000 USD per person. 

Class Size

Because our courses are interactive and learner-oriented, we limit class size to a minimum of three and a maximum of six. Early enrollment is encouraged as registrations are accepted on a first-come/first-serve basis.

**Each participant will be provided with class materials and lunch daily. While we have computers on-site, it is recommended that each participant bring a laptop. It is highly recommended to fly into Madison (MSN) on Sunday afternoon/evening and fly out  late Wednesday to be able to attend the full course.
