Safety excursion - registration form

Upon successful completion of the exam, you can make an appointment for a safety excursion at the User Office at Room 1.04 or register online, email nano@ceitec.vutbr.cz, or by phone +420 54114 9207.

Depending on your needs, you may select the following safety excursions:

  • Full CEITEC Nano excursion – 2 hrs. (training for dangerous chemical substances (1hr.) is not included in duration)
  • Nanofabrication laboratory – 45 min.
  • Nanocharacterization laboratory – 30 min.
  • Structural analysis laboratory – 30 min.

And “Handling of toxic and dangerous chemical substances” training – mandatory for all users who will be in contact with dangerous chemical compounds/solutions (for example HF in nanofabrication laboratory) – 1 hr.

If your needs change in the future, you may want to schedule an extra safety excursion. Note, that without completing the safety excursion for a given laboratory, you will not be able to book the equipment.
