Under the PLAXIS Academy educational program several courses, trainings, seminars, and workshops are organized throughout the year at different locations all over the world.
PLAXIS Courses consist of a mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analyses making the courses more than just a software training. The aim of both teaching and exercises is to concentrate on the use and background of advanced methods in geotechnical engineering. The principal of PLAXIS Courses is that they will give ongoing education and knowledge transfer for which the use of the PLAXIS software is only a tool to explain the topics learned.
There are two levels of courses, standard and advanced. The Standard Courses are meant for those who have little or no experience with PLAXIS and focuses on the engineering aspects of the use of finite element method. The Advanced Courses on the other hand assumes a certain level of experience and therefore goes deeper into the theoretical background.
The PLAXIS Trainings focus on developing knowledge on the use of PLAXIS Software. This is considered the main topic and any technical lecture is just to support and illustrate the use of the software. Under PLAXIS Trainings distinguish between a PLAXIS Training (multi-day), a PLAXIS Workshop (1-day) or PLAXIS Seminar (without any hands-on training with the software).
