What do the participants say about the course?

The course is perfectly structured to get to know the software in a comprehensive way. Very practical exercises and explanations. As a steel detailer with more than 10years of experience, knowing and learning this software is essential to stay up-to-date and stay competent. It is the present and the future of steel connections.

This course is very well organized, where you can find lots of material and explanations about how to operate the software. It's about 400 pages of lectures, and lots of videos of different topics, where you develop your knowledge about IDEA StatiCa and how to understand the software inputs and output. There is a big difference between seeing a simple tutorial on youtube and make this training. I improved a lot with this training and now I can model any connection in different ways also. Just try it! The grading system is not so easy, you should study and think.

This course gave me valuable and detailed information on using the software, with just the right amount of theoretical background, as well as useful practical tips and tricks. It is so much more than reading online help files or watching videos. Compared to other calculation software, relatively more engineering judgment is required to correctly define the model and interpret the results, and this course provides a lot of help understanding how seemingly minor changes in input data can lead to significantly different results and possible errors. I am definitely more confident and efficient in using IDEA StatiCa after having finished the course.
