Introductory Lab Course.

What do I have to do to get into the Introductory Lab Course?

There are basically two requirements for this course:

  • to successfully complete the LVA Chemical Laboratory Safety including the fire-drill
  • Participation in the introductory meeting for the Introductory Lab Course

Both requirements serve to ensure safety in the laboratory and participation is not negotiable!

LVA Chemical Laboratory Safety

This course consists of two parts: an online video course including an online exam and the compulsory fire-drill exercise.

The online exam has to be completed successfully by October 22, 2020 - but can be taken at any time before this date.

The fire-drill will take place on October 13th and 14th in the afternoon. The students are divided into groups each assigned to a certain time window. Attendance and active participation is mandatory! In case you are sick or in quarantine on these days, there will probably be a third option on October 29th.

You will only receive a certificate for successful participation in the LVA Chemical Laboratory Safety in KUSSS if you have successfully completed the online test and participated in the fire-drill. With your successful participation confirmation you can register in KUSSS for the Introductory Lab Course until October 30th.

Preliminary meeting for the Introductory Lab Course

Before you are finally assigned to the Introductory Lab Course you also have to attend the preliminary meeting. The exact schedule, the laboratory rules and other organizational things are explained in more detail during this meeting.

The preliminary meeting for all groups will take place on October 27, 2020 from 5:15 pm to 6:45 pm. To be more precise, two preliminary meetings will take place in parallel, one in German and one in English language (provided you are fluent in both languages, you can choose freely between the two).
