Training options offered by DS&T

Design Systems & Technologies offer comprehensive training courses at all levels covering both the software we offer and related topics (such as naval architecture, complementary programs, CAD and analysis, etc.).

We always try to adjust training to the customer's situation and requirements. Two successful formulas are :

Training on the job (max. 4 students per instructor).
Training is focused on an on-going or benchmark project, and structured as a real-life consulting performance. Lead by the instructor, the trainees work through the project at hand, thereby facing a realistic situation. This training method was developed to best acquaint new software users to the inevitable difficulties and intricacies of acquiring, processing and transmitting the appropriate information in a focused fashion.
Although training-on-the-job can take place in our offices, the customer's site is a preferable location, as the instructor will learn about the customer's working environment and optimize subject treatment and techniques accordingly.


Seminar training.
Seminar training is normally arranged in a multi-level structure over a number of days. The levels covered are beginner, intermediate and advanced, in separate sessions. Each session comprises of a general lecture, a hands-on period, and a case study.
Seminars are offered on general or focused topics. On request, company specific seminars are arranged, as is often the case to present the preparation, development and conclusion of a consulting job. Seminars are organized periodically around the world by
DS&T and its partner companies. Please contact us for more information.
