JEOL Instrument Training

SEM Training During the Pandemic

During this COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our customers and employees is of utmost importance to us. With that in mind, we are complying with the government shelter-in-place orders and have cancelled the SEM training courses held at JEOL USA through this summer.

Applications personnel continue to remain at your disposal for any technical inquiries, including remote training and technical support. Online training sessions on SEM-EDS theory and practice as well as SEM instrument operation are happening now and new sessions will be posted on here shortly. Please note this will not negate your training credit. The credits can be used at a later time once we and you are back in full operation.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact anyone of us in SEM Applications or for applications support or SEM training requests.

At JEOL, we believe that effective training optimizes the performance of our instruments. Through comprehensive training classes in operation of electron microscopes, NMR, and mass spectrometers, we teach our customers how to get the most from their instruments. Our training courses are designed to familiarize the new user with alignment, operating functions, and applications of the instrument to the user’s specific area of interest. Our experience in imaging and analysis is unmatched. Our expert microscopists and spectrometrists help our customers with a myriad of challenges - exotic biological specimens, metal fractures, volcanic ash, explosives – virtually any application that exists for these scientific tools.

Hands-on Training

JEOL courses provide a maximum of hands-on training. Class sizes are typically limited to five students per instrument, and training is adapted to all levels of experience.


Training for one student is typically included in the purchase of a JEOL instrument. For additional training, or training on an older instrument, tuition payments cover all course materials, lectures and instrument time. Lunch is provided. All other meals, travel and lodging are the responsibility of the student.

Scheduling and Registration

We offer training courses for all of our scanning and transmission electron microscopes, microprobes, NMR, and mass spectrometry instruments at our Technology Center - New England in Peabody, Massachusetts. Classes in JEOL electron optics equipment are also held at our Technology Center - Silicon Valley in Pleasanton, California.
