This 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 your 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-study modules combined with 4 online live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course and the discussions forum. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh the knowledge for your projects.
