The Online Essential Training course covers the same content as the 4-day In-Person Essentials course, but in an online instructor-led class through GoToMeeting™. You’ll learn the basics of discrete event simulation plus get an essential understanding of the ExtendSim architecture.
The online course consists of nine 1.5 to 2 hour sessions over the course of 2+ weeks plus an optional one-on-one post-course session. Class begins at 3pm EDT (12pm PDT) Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays throughout the 2 week training course. The ninth session will review concepts covered in the course and answer any remaining questions on the following Monday.
Homework assignments will be given on most days so attendees can practice concepts covered in class, plus a couple of case studies will be assigned each week to be completed outside of class time. It will be expected that each student plan to spend 1 to 2 hours outside of class each day completing assigned homework to fully comprehend the material.
For the online course, be sure you have a Model Developer Edition of ExtendSim Pro installed on your computer. If you have not yet purchased and activated ExtendSim, you may use the Trial version. Just be careful not to begin your Trial period with the software any earlier than the week before the online course begins as you only have 30 days in your Trial period.
