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
