The Sysmex Training Academy

Frequency Asked Questions:

How much training will we receive?

  • Each Sysmex analyser purchased is automatically accompanied by a number of training credits, to allow you to arrange the most appropriate training to suit your needs. The amount of credits received are specific to each instrument.
    You can choose which course better suits your level of expertise, either- Basic, Comprehensive or Advanced.
  • You can top up your training as and when required – the system is completely flexible and built around your specific training needs.
  • You will receive further training credits in subsequent years based on your range of equipment and your annual revenue expenditure.

Do I have to leave the lab?

For all of your basic training needs, the Sysmex Training Academy can accommodate training at your premises at a date and time which suit you. Comprehensive training courses, held at the Sysmex UK Training Suite in Milton Keynes, are designed to share expert knowledge efficiently and effectively. Recognising the time pressures you are under these are managed to minimise the time you or your staff are away from the laboratory.

What about any travel costs?

We recognise that budget constraints dictate how much training can be arranged. To reflect this we will reimburse most reasonable travel costs if you are required to visit the Sysmex Training Academy for your particular training module. (Please see Terms and Conditions for further information.)

Can I use the Training Credits for anything else?

Yes, in year 3 onwards, Training Credits can also be used to keep your professional knowledge and skills up to date by attending relevant conferences and professional development events such as the IBMS, Sysmex User Symposium or the NEQAS & BSHT Annual Meetings.

Credits can also be used to purchase certain educational materials and subscriptions. You can also purchase extra credits if required. Please contact us for further details.
