Training Course

Introduction to XPSWMM/XPStorm (US)


Two-day XPSWMM/XPStorm training workshop with detailed instruction on XPSWMM/XPStorm key features and practical step-by-step exercises to enhance learning objectives.


This class will focus on stormwater modeling, starting with basic hydrology and hydraulics on day one. The second part of day one will provide more in-depth instruction and exercise for more advanced stormwater modeling functions and tools such as dual drainage and storage. The second day will delve into 1D river modeling and integrated 1D/2D modeling.

Innovyze Workshops cater to a variety of skill levels. However, 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/XPStorm. This requires access to a license of the software. If you do not have access to a license, please contact your representative.


Registration fee: $1995
