Training with LMC 


Training with us, you are training with the very best because we are the developers of QSAR Toolbox.


When you train with us, you get the full benefit to learn from the creators of the system.  There are no questions without answers.  We know what an assessment will look for - so we train you to meet it. We know the thinking behind the hazard assessment of chemicals - so we can convey that to drive and inspire you.  We have a team of expert tutors working across the science and they will transfer the knowledge and skills you need.  Your problematic chemicals could become your training exercises because our motto is "learning by doing."



After this course 


Our team of tutors has vast amounts of training and assessment experience, and knows best the functionalities of the Toolbox.  After this course, you will be able to interact with the system by asking questions, interpreting its answers, creating new knowledge and justifying your solutions based on its functionalities. 


You will become expert in:


Input:  including input of a target chemical, quality analysis of chemical structures, intelligent search in inventories and databases;


Profiling:  including understanding what you could expect from your chemical, its chemical mechanism of interaction, its physiological mode of action, how to computerize your own knowledge and disseminate it with your colleagues


Endpoint: including how to collect data from public databases, units and scale conversion, create your own custom database and share it with your colleagues, exchange data with IUCLID5


Category definition: including building a category of similar chemicals, search for "strange" analogous, filtering by test conditions


Data Gap Filling: how and when to use read across, trend analysis, and QSAR, smart sub-categorization, outliers justification, meaning and interpretation of numbers


Report: including building standard reports supported by OECD and ECHA, user-defined or edited reports



How to attend training 


1. On-Site Training (on demand)


If you have several people to train, or you need customized course then On-Site Training is the most convenient and cost-effective to your organization.  You have the opportunity for a greater flexibility, to specify subjects of special interest and to customize the course for a non-standard training.

What our trainees say 


"…the course was completely fine and nothing actually needed to be done to make the training more efficient ..."


"…the "real-life" example presented there was crucial. Understanding the "concept" behind, made it much easier to attend the QSAR toolbox training …"


"… things that were liked during the training were the scientific background of the training, the repetition of some complex tasks to routinise them and the interaction and opportunity to ask and discuss during the course …"


"…the new concept of a "hands-on" training provided practical and interesting examples and explanations and the software demo made sure that everybody was following each step of the trainer's explanations.  This also gave the participants an opportunity to a repetition of going through the different steps of the Toolbox. According to the participants, the worthy examples provided were extremely useful for gaining a worthy knowledge of Toolbox and also the number of examples provided was very good …"
