Formal training is highly recommended to ensure that you receive the most from your investment in Arena Simulation Software.  We offer a variety of public courses throughout the year as well as provide customer-specific on-site training at your facilities.  All courses are taught by our team of consultants who have a broad range of simulation experience.  Whichever path you choose, we are confident you will benefit from our Arena training offerings.

Arena Standard/Professional Edition Course

The Arena Standard/Professional Edition course is taught by experienced Arena Simulation Consultants and consists of an even balance of lectures and hands-on workshops.

We offer regularly scheduled public courses at our office in Pittsburgh, PA. In addition, we offer the option of conducting the same course at your offices. The on-site course uses the same agenda and materials of the public course. If you have multiple attendees, the on-site course can be a cost effective option.
