Flood and Stormwater Modelling Workshop

Perth, Australia - October 30 - November 1, 2017

Our workshops provide a completion certificate for 7 hours of Structured CPD which may be used for chartered members of Engineers Australia.  Certification of participation in our training courses is included for all workshop attendees.

Level: Basic & Intermediate

About the workshop:

XP Solutions Workshops cater to a variety of skill levels and now also includes guidance on ARR 2016.

To make the best use of class time it is recommended that anyone who attends a training go through the Getting Started Manual for xpswmm or xpstorm. This requires access to a license of the software. If you do not have access to a license, please contact your representative.

Classes start at 9:00am (registration at 8:45am) and finish at 5:00pm. A 1-hour lunch will be taken at around 12:30pm.
