Our strength as a company and as engineers with years of experience is in passing
along numerical modeling knowledge; identifying how the theory has been implemented
in the software and helping people learn what is important to include and what is
important to neglect when developing a model. All training programs are led by geotechnical
engineers with many years of consulting, teaching and modeling experience.
We have found our training programs not only help novice users learn a new product,
but provide valuable modeling guidelines that greatly enhance the performance of
Two workshops take place annually, one in
Alberta, Canada (generally in the fall in Banff or Calgary),
and another internationally (generally in the spring).
These workshops follow a similar format, teaching general numerical modeling skills as well as
hands-on experience with GEO-SLOPE software. Whether you wish to fine-tune your
numerical modeling skills or be eased into the world of numerical modeling using
GEO-SLOPE products, these workshops are designed for you.
A series of free training videos that replicate our onsite
workshops are available from our self-hosted workshop page. These resources will allow you to self-host your own geotechnical modeling
workshop, either for a group of engineers, or simply for your individual training needs.
Our training programs go beyond simply learning what buttons to push. Modeling is
more about trying to understand the processes involved than it is in predicting
results. The long-term effectiveness of our training courses is ensured by teaching engineering
principles and how to apply engineering knowledge to the modeling process.
All of our training programs are custom designed for each organization, incorporating
examples and projects that are directly applicable to a specific line of work.
