Microscopy Courses, Training and Education

Expand Your Possibilities

Practical microscopy training has a long tradition at ZEISS. The first courses were held in Jena as early as 1907.
The courses are continuously advanced and optimized. Our own continuous education as well as cooperation projects with scientists in high-ranking laboratories ensure that we are always up to date.


Our courses impart an understanding of the theoretical background as well as practical skills in many applications from biology, medicine and materials science. You will study in small groups, which allows a highly interactive learning experience. Lectures are immediately followed by practical hands-on experience. To meet your requirements decide yourself where your course will take place, remote, at ZEISS or at your facility.

Your trainers are graduated scientists and bring together knowledge in various scientific fields with many years of experience in microscopy and its practical application. This combination of technical and applicational know-how is just the right mixture to get your theoretical and practical questions answered.
