Conidia has created training modules focusing on different problems you may encounter in your work environment.
These participatory training give you the keys to understanding your problem. They are conducted by experienced trainers. The base is: how to detect, identify and cultivate mould ...
We apply the same quality in our training than write analysis’s report: we adapt our examples to your particular case for enhanced information assimilation (eg, the mould Food, Mould and building materials). Our courses are aimed at any audience who needs to understand the world of fungi.
If your problem is specific, we can offer training adapted to your requirements. Please contact us for more details.
A sample program for a specific training is offered here.
Depending on the chosen level of training, pre-requisites may be indispensable (minimum level in biology, knowledge of microbiological manipulations ...).
Introduction, definition and classification of fungi
Biology of fungi: the vegetative apparatus "the art of invading solid media"
Identification of mold and / or observation of yeast
Moulds in laboratory: culture media, isolation, preservation, selection of culture, purification, enumeration and quantification of biomass.
Recognition of genera and species of fungi with economic and health (useful or harmful) importance
The deterioration caused by fungi (mycotoxin production ...)
Biology of fungi: asexual reproduction: the art of contaminating "
Physio-ecology of fungi: "the art of growth in drastic conditions"

Teaching is decomposed in a theoretical part (about 6 hours) and a practical part (about 8 hours) with observations of micro-organisms as molds.
How does mould grow?
Risks associated with the presence of mould and safety precautions to take
Methods of transplanting
Study of strains involved in the standards for paper and textiles
