Basic course

This course provides an introductory level training in General Accelerator Physics (mainly for engineers and technical engineers, who have not yet attended one of the regular CERN Accelerator School Introductory courses). The course reviews the core topics of accelerator physics with special emphasis on CERN machines and CERN applications, respectively.

The course is at a slightly easier level than the Introductory Course. It has a subset of topics, does not include hands-on exercises, and has a duration of five days only. 

Originally this course was for CERN participation only, but since the year 2018 it is also available for anyone not working for CERN.
