  2. Training for the T-12 Spirit generally lasts approximately 12 hours depending on the ability of the student. The length of the training period is designed so that the student can develop a moderate level of expertise, independently run the instruments, and handle them without causing any costly damage. All other training and service will be charged according to staff time used. It is required that all training be given by the General Manager.
  3. The General Manager determines if the student has the necessary skills to use the instruments without supervision or to operate them during non-peak hours.

Please contact the general manager to apply for access to UOW Cryo-EM resources.
