The Diploma in Basic Chemistry at QLS Level 3 will teach learners the scientific discipline that involves the compounds composed of atoms, their composition, properties, structures and reactions to other compounds. Chemistry is sometimes considered as the central science as it provides a foundation for understanding basic and applied scientific disciplines at a basic level. Chemistry is a very important subject that is essential to understand and study the world around you. Simply put, chemistry is needed to understand the cooking process. Chemistry explains how food changes when you cook, how it rots, how to preserve it and how your body uses the food.

Knowledge of basic chemistry is a must for everyone’s life. It is important to have an understanding of basic chemistry to comprehend different things in life. Whether you are a student of Physics of Biology, knowledge of basic chemistry is vital if you want to excel in your field of study. 

The Diploma in Basic Chemistry at QLS Level 3 will introduce learners to basic chemistry by covering on topics such as sub disciplines, chemical compounds and molecules. You will also gain insight into modern chemistry, substances verses mixtures, phase and bonding. Learn about the laboratory safety practices and methods. The course will help individuals learn about energy, reaction, acidity, basicity and alkalinity. Additionally, the course will touch on pH and the calculations of pH, main group elements and lanthanides through as well.
