Product Training

We provide videos and support to assist customers learning our software, but there is no replacement for live, comprehensive training. Our courses provide a mixture of lecture and hands-on experience working with demonstration models to provide an overview of heat transfer and fluid flow modeling as well as familiarity with our software.

Custom Training: If you are interested in product training at your own facility, please contact us to obtain a quote for training between 8-12 attendees. Available courses can be seen in our course catalog

Standard Training: We schedule training classes open to all customers as shown below. These classes also provide a wonderful opportunity to meet thermal engineers in other industries. Our major training class, which starts with two days of Thermal Desktop training, is typically offered twice a year.
