Is there a charge for training at CNS?

Yes, but not always. The LISE/CNS Safety Training, the LISE Cleanroom Orientation, and other safety related room overview trainings are free of charge. For specific instruments we charge for the staff time only. You can calculate a training cost by looking at the number of hours divided by the max number of attendees. For example, if there was a 2 hour training event that allowed four sign-up slots, each participant would be responsible for .5 hours of staff time. You can see the current rate sheets at to see your cost for Onsite Assisted Use, which is the staff time associated with training. Specifically requested one-on-one trainings count as Onsite Assisted Use.
