User Training

Before performing work at the CNM, you must take certain orientation and safety training courses. We encourage you to take these courses remotely before you arrive at Argonne. 

  1. Go to the Remote Training web site.
  2. Enter your Argonne badge number.
  3. Locate the "CNM Facilitiy Core Courses" section and follow the links to the courses.

For your information the CNM core courses are:

  • CNM 101: Center for Nanoscale Materials User Orientation (2-year training interval)
  • ESH 100U: Argonne National Laboratory User Facility Orientation (2-year training interval)*
  • ESH 223U: Cybersecurity Annual Education and Awareness (1-year training interval)*
  • ESH 590: Engineered Nanomaterials Orientation (one-time course)

Users of the electron microscopy facilities in buildings 212 or 216 also need:

  • NST212216 Orientation for CNM User Work in Buildings 212 and 216.

* Argonne employees need SEC101, ESH108xxx or ESH1000, and ESH223.

Note: Users who will not visit CNM in person ("remote users") need take only one course: ESH 223U: Cybersecurity Annual Education and Awareness.
