CompleteEASE Short Course October 22-24, 2024

J.A. Woollam 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. This version of software will be provided to all attendees before the start of 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.

Please note this short course requires participants to bring their own laptop (Mac or PC).
