The programme contains a series of lectures and workshops during which participants will apply the knowledge learned during lectures through practical exercises. Delegates should bring laptop computers with Excel and can use their own statistical software or the trial software that can be downloaded on-site. Delegates are also encouraged to bring their own data or queries.
