Product Training

We provide videos and support to assist customers in 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 for your company based on your schedule, please contact us to obtain a quote for training between 8-12 attendees. We can come to your facility or the lectures can be presented online. Available class descriptions can be found in our course catalog

CRTech-hosted Training: We schedule introductory training classes open to all customers as shown below. These classes are typically held in Lakewood, CO, twice a year and online twice a year. The Lakewood classes provide a wonderful opportunity to meet thermal engineers in other industries.

Sign up for our newsletter to be notified of future training opportunities including topic-specific classes for those who want a little more than the introductory classes.

CRTech-Hosted Training Fees Per Attendee (Lakewood and Regional classes)

Because some participants may not be interested in all topics, attendance is recommended but not mandatory for all days. The fees for consecutive days are as follows (in US Dollars):

  • Introduction to Thermal Desktop - $1700
  • Introduction to RadCAD - $1400
  • Both (taken consecutively) - $2000

Fees cover all course materials, lunch, and coffee breaks.  Please inform us of any special diet requirements.

Two discounts are available: Customers with a current CRTech support contract will receive a 15% discount off the above prices if the participant registers and is paid in full at least 31 days prior to the class. For new customers, half of the course fees paid will be applied to all new licenses purchased by participants during the 12 months following the class. Only one discount may be taken per participant.

Advanced Pipes in FloCAD
Thursday November 14, 9-10am MT (8-9am PT, 11am-noon ET)
This webinar introduces advanced features for FloCAD pipes in addition to working with complex geometry. Complex geometry includes interior fins and surfaces for heat transfer, flow around enclosed objects, annular flow, concentric pipes, and more. FK Locators and TEEs as modeling objects will also be introduced.
Custom Heat Transfer and Pressure Drops
Tuesday November 19, 2-3pm MT (1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET)
Do you know what the default assumptions are in FloCAD, and whether or not they apply in your situation? Do you know how far you can go past that starting point? The answer: pretty far. There are numerous mechanisms in FloCAD for adjusting factors, scaling uncertainties, and applying different or supplemental correlations. This webinar summarizes the options available to you to customize your flow models to make sure that they apply to each new situation you encounter.
Heat Exchangers: Detailed and System-level
Thursday November 21, 2-3pm MT (1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET)
This is two webinars in one. The first explains the use and assumptions behind the FloCAD HX system-level modeling object. The second webinar describes detailed-level modeling of complex heat exchanger passages, including application of Compact Heat Exchanger (CHX) methods.
Starting in 2020, we will begin offering Introduction to Thermal Desktop and Introduction to RadCAD as either in-person training or online training, alternating between online and in-person every three months. The training uses lectures and demonstrations to introduce you to basic Thermal Desktop and RadCAD usage. Hands-on tutorials provide practice building models and interpreting results (tutorials are completed by students outside of the online class time).
 
The next training class will be an online format in January 2020:
  • Introduction to Thermal Desktop (and SINDA) - A three-part series on January 14, 16, and 21 from 9am to 12pm, Mountain time
  • Introduction to RadCAD - January 23 from 9am to 12pm, Mountain time
For up-to-date schedules, fees, and policies, visit our Product Training page. To register for the class above, complete our registration form and select "Online" for the Training Format.
