How was the introductory phase of your training?
My introductory training was rapid and unproblematic. I was able to ask questions at any time and received very thorough information about all procedures. Important matters requiring my particular attention were demonstrated to me in actual practice. All of the training sessions were well prepared and comprehensibly presented. 

What matters require particular awareness when dealing with chemical materials? 
The most important thing is self-protection as well as the protection of one’s colleagues. One must always respect and follow all safety measures in order to protect the environment, oneself and all others. When working with hazardous materials, it is very important to be careful.

How important is manual dexterity in your training?
One should most definitely bring along a certain amount of manual skill, as a significant portion of the training takes place in the laboratory. It is crucial to have an understanding of the precision needed for all work that is carried out.
