Analytica Training

Analytica Training courses help you rapidly learn the best practices for modeling and how to apply Analytica software to real-life problems. You work hands-on with your own laptop. The training includes course notes and tutorial files.

We offer a four-morning on-line training. The next online training has been scheduled for September 21-24th, 2020. Please contact if you wish to attend

Focus of Training

The four-day webinar provides concentrated training on how to create and use decision models to provide sound results and real insights for more effective decision-making in your organization. It is intended for those who have some experience in building models, perhaps with spreadsheets, and want to expand their skills. It combines high-level training on essential concepts for effective model-building with hands-on training on how to exploit the power of Analytica.

We invite you to bring your own ideas for modeling projects — including spreadsheets or Analytica prototype models — to provide real-world examples to work on during the training.

On the fourth day, you may wish to bring materials, such as an existing spreadsheet or initial Analytica model, that you would like to refine.
