Our extensive range of informative and engaging training courses are delivered by tutors with years of practical experience. Available as part of an open programme with scheduled dates throughout the year.
From entry-level training to advanced tuition in specialist modelling software, our courses offer something for everyone. They are illustrated by real life examples, with hands- on sessions allowing you to gain practise and confidence in interpreting the material and methods.
Most of our scheduled courses are now delivered online using Microsoft Teams, however we are gradually reintroducing face-to-face courses on specific topics. Please contact us for more information.
