All in-person trainings that CNS offers are listed in one of three categories. They are as follows:

Open Event: Any training with this designation is not charged and one does not require a CNS User Name and password in order to register. As a result, you can sign-up for any training with this designation even prior to completion of the CNS User enrollment process.

CNS Users Only: Trainings under this training designation do require an active CNS UN and PW. One must have completed the CNS User enrollment process and received the new user confirmation email in order to attend a training of this designation.

LISE Cleanroom Users Only: Trainings under this designation require, in addition to having a CNS UN and PW, that one be fully cleanroom qualified before one can sign-up. Information on how to become cleanroom qualified can be found in the User Info section of the website under the Nanofabrication Facility Use tab.

CNS does offer some trainings online through the Harvard University Training Portal. They will be listed below and do not require advance sign-up. Online trainings at the portal do require a Harvard Key. If you are a Non-Harvard User who does not have a HUID or HU Key, you will get one as part of the enrollment process.

The LISE CNS Safety Training, which is required as part of the enrollment process, is not listed as it is held at fixed times. Please see the Become a CNS User tab of the CNS web site for more info regarding that training.

Important information regarding training pre-requisite requirements and training pathways for specific instrumentation can be found in the User Info section of the CNS website under the tabs: Nanofabrication Facility Use and Imaging and Analysis Facility Use.

If you cannot find a training for something you are interested in receiving training on at CNS, please see the instrument sections of our website to find the technical staff member who manages it and contact them directly. If you cannot figure out who to contact regarding training, please contact us at info@cns.fas.harvard.edu

It is CNS policy that CNS Users only sign-up for trainings that they plan to attend. It is not permitted for a CNS User to sign-up for a groupmate or other party as a placeholder.
