The basic and customized training courses are normally held at the customer’s site, but can also be held at the PerkinElmer facilities in Waltham, MA.


Basic training is hands-on training, meaning that during the class, each user is provided with a workstation that has the software installed. The training is conducted according to the standard PerkinElmer course syllabi, using generic training workbooks and materials that were developed for the Core Enterprise Applications.

Costs are based on a flat rate. The trainer’s travel expenses are not included in the course pricing.


Customized training is hands-on training as well, but it is tailored to the customer’s business practices and workflows. For customized training, PerkinElmer will work with the customer to develop custom training workbooks and a custom syllabus that reflect the customer’s optimal usage of the system.

Costs are based on a flat rate plus any additional costs that may be associated with the creation of the customized training course materials.  The trainer’s travel expenses are not included in the course pricing.


GoToMeeting training is training performed at a distance.  Due to the nature of this delivery format, the customer will not be responsible for any travel expenses for the instructor, but will be charged the same price for the delivery as a Face-to-Face training session.  In this method of delivery the instructor and class participants will dial into a conference call and a GoToMeeting web session and work together in this environment for the duration of the training.  The instructor will deliver the same content as in a Face-to-Face training session and be able to address questions directly, as posed by the group.  An ideal class size for this style of delivery is ten (10) students, but larger class sizes can be accommodated, please inquire directly with Services.


Ten (10) students is our maximum class size, please check with Services for options, if you are interested in training solutions with more than ten (10) participants.
