Inductions and training

ANFF-Q has facilities located around Brisbane. Depending on your project and the instruments required for your research, you will need to complete different inductions.

Once you have submitted your completed initial contact form, an ANFF-Q staff member will contact you within two working days to arrange a consultation to discuss your project further and to let you know which inductions you need to complete.
