Attendees are guided through basic operation, calibration and maintenance, as well as instruction on the controller and comprehensive diagnostic screens.

Atlas is offering two course levels to accommodate different weathering testing experience. Courses are held consecutively so attendees from Level I can immediately build on their knowledge in Level II.
