This course is designed for the school technician with little knowledge or experience of servicing school microscopes. The purpose of the course is to provide the confidence to tackle simple maintenance tasks and to enable faults in school microscopes to be identified so that standard repairs can be done. Certain jobs will still require the services of professional microscope technicians.
