Diploma in Basic Chemistry - Level 3South London College
Looking for the perfect foundation to further your studies or career aspirations in chemistry? Then this Diploma in Basic Chemistry – Level 3 is all the certification you need to bring your goals to life. This course will extensively cover the basics of chemistry to help you easily grasp the more advanced aspects of it in future. Since chemistry is a part of our daily lives, this course is also ideal if you wish to study more about the environment around you.
This insightful course will relay the fundamentals of basic chemistry such as sub disciples, chemical compounds and molecules. You will get to discover about energy, reaction, acidity, basicity and alkalinity, followed by lectures on the principles of modern chemistry, substances versus mixtures, Phase and bonding. This course will also discuss about PH, its definition and calculations to identify chemicals using them.
Chemistry mainly focuses on the chemicals and chemical reactions around us. Therefore, this course has dedicated a few modules that will educate you on the types of chemicals, main group elements and Lanthanides. This course also considers your health and safety while handling chemicals, which is why the course curriculum will walk you through the laboratory safety practices and methods and the Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP).
