Training Courses

Photosynthesis training courses are offered throughout the year at various locations around the world. Courses provide information on instrument use, theory, data processing, maintenance, and related topics.

Register early, as class sizes are limited and fill quickly. LI‑COR reserves the right to cancel a session 3 weeks prior.

Courses are designed for users who have little or no experience with the LI‑6800 or LI-6400/XT, but may also be useful as a refresher for users with more experience. Some of the topics covered during the courses include:

  • Fundamentals of making gas exchange and fluorescence measurements
  • LI-6800 and LI‑6400/XT hardware and software introduction
  • Environmental control
  • Making survey and response curve measurements
  • Maintenance, calibration and troubleshooting

Additional Information

If attending training in Lincoln, NE or Bad Homburg, Germany, lunch and local transportation are included. Attendees are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and other meal expenses. For trainings in Lincoln, LI‑COR will handle all lodging arrangements. Attendees must bring their own LI-6800 or LI‑6400/XT instrument to the course.

Register for Photosynthesis Training

Cost: The Photosynthesis Training Course is available at no charge with the purchase of a LI-6800. Contact LI-COR.

Once you sign up for a session, a training coordinator will contact you with your confirmation and provide additional information. If you have any questions about training before you register, please contact us.
