In line with the Keeping KAUST Safe guidelines on practicing physical distancing, the KAUST Core Labs will not provide in-person training during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact the relevant lab for further information.




As part of the KAUST Core Labs’ educational mandate our expert staff run training modules for our users on all equipment suitable for independent use.

As independent use broadens awareness of processes and facilitates ownership of method and data acquisition, we encourage all of our users to work independently when possible. Our staff will always be on hand to offer ongoing support and advice if needed.

Training modules, run bi-annually, are open to the KAUST academic community, and our external users who have a service agreement with KAUST.

To be eligible for training all applicants must first be registered on our central booking system, Badger. For more information about Badger please contact clc@kaust.edu.sa


The ACL lab provides theoretical and hands-on training to enable independent use.

Please find below our semi-annual training schedule for 2019. Training is offered to all KAUST students, staff, and external collaborators.

Successful completion of the appropriate training is a prerequisite for usage on all ACL equipment available for independent use. This schedule itemizes the dates and duration of each session, as well as the maximum number of attendees allowed. Potential attendees must email their training requests to the addresses listed on the schedule and will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. No training will be given without email confirmation. All questions related to these training sessions can be directed to the same email addresses.
