In this course we will cover the basics of microscopy, sampling methods, sampling protocols, sample preparation, counting procedures, conversions to concentration and proper reporting methods. Plenty of reference material (reference slides and books) will be available to aid the acquisition of fungal spore identification skills. In addition, samplers, slides and cassettes will be available so that participants can collect, prepare and examine their own air samples.
