Smarter experimentation for scientists and engineers

Kick start your career development with our free five-day online training programme on design of experiments, delivered by JMP

Design of Experiments (DoE) is the most effective way to empirically learn about technologies when there are many variables or factors to consider. Despite this, school and degree science curricula rarely teach these methods. In this fun and engaging training programme you will be introduced to DoE and you will see how it has enabled chemists to develop better solutions, faster. 

Following our very successful and over-subscribed programme in 2020, JMP and Chemistry World are delighted to offer this innovative five-day online training programme again in 2021. Please register below to reserve your place now!

Step 3: Download the software

This programme includes hand-on exercises each day, which you can complete on your own computer using JMP’s statistical discovery software. You will need to download and activate a free trial of this software. Once activated this trial will last for 30 days. We recommend you download and activate your free trial two weeks prior to the start of the programme. You need to download your free trial directly from JMP's website.

Step 4: Claim your certificate

If you complete all five days then you will receive a certificate for inclusion in your CPD record. You can also use attendance on this programme as supporting evidence for your Chartered Chemist (CChem) application.
