This e-hybrid course teaches you all the fundamentals, and much more, of working with NozzlePRO.

Not just the basics. In this course, you will learn many different aspects of the NozzlePRO software, such as using the different Finite Element templates, set-up of you loads, model verification, viewing & post-processing your results and the relevance of the ASME VIII-2 stress categorization and compliance checks. 

The course allows you to learn at your own pace and is fully provided online. The training is suitable for both new users as experienced users that want to learn more about the different features of the software.

The course consists of 6 online, self-paced learning modules and 3 interactive, online live sessions with the instructor. Recordings of the live sessions and related training content are provided through our online portal.

Self-paced modules & live sessions
This course consists of 6 self-learning modules combined with 3 instructor-led group sessions (online) in which participants can ask questions to the instructor which are be discussed, as well as questions submitted in the self-learning modules. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal.

You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to all course content including recordings of the live sessions. This allows them to watch videos or recording live sessions again whenever required to refresh knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance and completion of the self-learning modules.

Live sessions

Group live sessions are provided to your team by means of online calls with the instructor. Recordings of the live sessions and related training content are provided through our online portal. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor which are be discussed as well as questions submitted in the self-learning modules. The live sessions allow teams to discuss specific challenges with the instructor with respect to the training topics.

After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again.

Exercise files can be downloaded, these can include .pdf files with the exercise questions, software models or other file types. Videos will not be available for download, but can be accessed directly with your account on the portal. If slides are used in the videos or live sessions these can be viewed separately as well through the portal, but are not available for download. You receive 12-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.

Yes, interactive Q&A sessions are included in this course that allow you to interact with the instructor and ask questions. Additionally, questions can be submitted in the learning portal by the participants which are addressed in the live sessions.

An active NozzlePRO license is recommended for this course. In the course it is assumed that the participants have access to the software. This software license is not included in the course. Please contact us for questions on this matter.

Because of the current work-from-home conditions around the world as a result of the COVID-19 virus an active license is currently not mandatory (but recommended).
