Level & Style

Although the course includes scientific and technical information and terminology, we assume no prior technical knowledge. Our typical audience is composed of senior executives and business leaders, who need to understand the technology fundamentals, their economics, development and market applications; not the engineering practicalities of “hands-on” installation.

The course runs in a friendly, informal manner, encouraging discussions and questions to ensure that participants get the most out of their time.
