Design Data offers variety of training opportunities

Whether it’s a quick webinar or a week-long Basic Training course, Design Data offers many opportunities to learn about SDS/2. 

For example, we’re offering 12 Basic Training courses and six Continuing Education courses in 2015. 

The Basic Training courses are designed to help attendees get started in SDS/2. The week-long courses are free and held in Lincoln, Nebraska. 

The course covers project setup, member input, connection design, material input and more. Check out the course outline to see everything that is covered in the course.  

A series of basic training videos is also available.  

Continuing Education courses cover Parametrics and Custom Properties, Report Writer and Advanced Selection, BIM, and Revision Control. 

Users who want to get up to speed on new SDS/2 features can attend a one-day SDS/2 2015 seminar. 

These seminars are held across the country. Check out our website to see if an SDS/2 2015 seminar is coming to your area.  

Design Data is also offering five Keys to Making BIM Easy seminars this year. These seminars will highlight some of the most useful tools and commonly used workflows for today’s projects. 

Attendees will see a model move through each step within SDS/2 and learn about workflows that have yielded the best results in the real world. 

Webinars are frequently held to teach users about a variety of SDS/2 features. Previous webinars are available in the webinar archive.
