Synchrotron radiation (SR) is a successfully used tool of analytical techniques for studying the composition and structure of matter. Methods of X-ray fluorescence, diffraction analysis have been successfully used at the shared-used center (SUC) "Siberian Synchrotron and Terahertz Radiation Center (SSTRC)". Prospects for the development of research infrastructure with the help of SI, the creation of a new SUC "Siberian circular photons facility" ("SKIF") necessitates the expansion of the training program for young researchers working with synchrotron radiation. To solve this problem, in order to expand the laboratory practical work on the beamline #1 of the SR source VEPP-4M storage ring, a synchrotron radiation technological station is create. The mission of new station is a practical training of students on the basics of working with synchrotron radiation. The modular concept of the station makes it possible to implement all the main experimental methods of SR researches. The station can also be used to test new experimental equipment for SR (detectors, positioning monitoring systems, etc.). The work was done using the infrastructure of the Shared-Use Center “Siberian Synchrotron and Terahertz Radiation Center (SSTRC)” based on VEPP-3 of BINP SB RAS (Novosibirsk, Russian Federation).
