AWT Technical Training:

If you have listened to the show before, you know that I am proud to be a training with AWT for the Technical and Fundamental trainings.  This episode talks specifically to what is offered at the seminars as well as how to get the most out of the seminars.

Pinks and Blues:

This segment of Pinks and Blue deals with a set of questions, not just one or two, around pH meters.  I have complied a list of about 12 different and similar questions and talk about the pH meter to try to answer them all.  We will talk about proper meter care, calibration procedure and many more items around the pH meter.  Take a listen.
