What our clients say...
"This intensive, hands-on, two-day course prepared us to use Flood Modeller Pro in real world situations. The content of the course was a good mix of basic input and theory. The instruction was very interactive and we kept moving pretty quickly through topics - so that kept my interest"
“Our instructor was very knowledgeable, personable and friendly and he conducted the course in a very professional manner. He was also very willing to help and presented things clearly. I would recommend this course for others, it was very helpful"
"As someone who was new to flood modelling, the standard of this introductory course was high, but this helped us to cover a lot of content over the two days"
"Really enjoyable and informative course. The practicals were challenging, but broken down into achievable steps, and the presentations helped to introduce the skills clearly. The tutor was a patient and extremely helpful instructor"
"Having attended the Advanced Flood Modeller training course, I was impressed with the content and delivery. The course tutor was clearly a knowledgeable and experienced modeller. He was more than happy to field various questions, provide advice on existing models in development, and offered lots of practical advice on making the best use of the software’s functionality"
