The J.A. Woollam Company is proud to announce a data analysis course designed for CompleteEASE users.  We will introduce the fundamentals of data analysis at a beginner to intermediate level. All details will be described using the latest CompleteEASE software (currently version 5.20). This version of software will be provided to all attendees to take home with them after the course. This course is not intended for users that work with other software packages, such as WVASE or VASEManager. As with our other analysis courses participants will work computer examples throughout all sessions.
