2021–2022 workshops

Learn to use The Geochemist's Workbench® like a pro with training from Aqueous Solutions, the people who make the software. We offer workshops on a range of subjects that may be taken in any order, and the contents of which have minimal overlap. Your time is valuable—let us get you up and running quickly!


Neither of us specializes in groundwater chemistry, but we found the course easy to follow and understand.

I was very impressed with the GWB Fate and Transport course in Johannesburg. It was well presented and very informative. I would recommend the course to any of my peers. Thank you, Brian and Craig!

The best workshop I've ever participated in. The short theoretical introductions and illustrated exercises helped me learn the software in two days.
