Design of Experiments

This course is conducted by quality experts and practitioners at Integral Concepts, our training partner. It teaches participants how to plan and conduct experiments in an effective and efficient manner. Participants gain the fundamental knowledge necessary to design effective experiments, analyze the results, and avoid the common mis-applications in practice. Knowledge of basic algebra is helpful, but not required.
