Organoleptic Judge Course

Bristol
Price: £2,500
The aim of this course is for you to develop your sense of smell and use it as an important qualitative and quantitative approach to assessing odour, especially malodour. You will first learn to recognise the different classes of compounds believed to be important in body odours, particularly oral malodour, by assessing the intensity and quality of microbial-mammalian volatile organic compounds (VOCs) before applying your skills on real mouth gases. If you are an academic, a doctor, a dentist, a dental hygienist, nurse or a technician then this course is suitable for you.

You will be provided with handouts on the methods used in the course along with your score sheets from carrying out assessments.
Upon successful completion you will receive a certificate of competence and recognition that you have attended this event.
