Choice in VWF courses as from January 2008

Up till now the VWF course was based on manual analysis, meaning that VWF analysts-to-be would learn and train VWF by means of the VWF manual and the corresponding VWF-cards inwhich the VWF-times were rounded to a multiple of 5 VU.
Originally, VWF was meant to be this way and also structured that way.
With the arrival of the PC and the first computerprograms for VWF, slowly the necessity disappeared for rounding the VWF times to a multiple of 5 VU.

As from the development of the new VWF-software, VWF3.02, and after consultations with VWF-analysts, the WFC decided to publish a VWF-manual and corresponding VWF-cards for analyses on PC; so for non-rounded VWF-times.

On request of the customer or to the insight of the VWF-instructor, a choice can be made to use material for VWF-manual; or VWF-PC.
