This two-day training course provides delegates with an overview of the 1D modelling techniques available within Flood Modeller and familiarises attendees with the various tools and features available within the software.

This course is presented from a practical point of view by expert modellers and is delivered through a series of presentations, hands-on practicals and open discussion sessions.

Each training course can accommodate up to eight individuals which ensures the best possible learning experience is provided.

Attendee feedback

"This intensive, hands-on, two-day course prepared us to use Flood Modeller 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"

"Really enjoyed the course. Very good tutor. It was great that lots of practical work was included to embed the learning"

"One of the best courses I have ever been on. Very, very helpful"

Learning objectives

By the end of this course, attendees should understand the capabilities of Flood Modeller and know how to utilise the software to develop basic flood models. The course will provide an overview of the key features, streamlined workflows and user-friendly interface within the software. On completion, attendees will be able to build, run and review their own models and generate data in multiple formats (e.g. maps and animations).

Course prerequisites

The course assumes no prior knowledge of flood modelling and is presented from a practical point of view by expert modellers. It is applicable to users of both Flood Modeller Pro and Flood Modeller Free.

Additional information

Comprehensive course notes, practical exercises and additional support material is provided to everybody that attends.

Specialist training laptops and software are provided to each attendee allowing you to undertake the training effectively.

The course is approved by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and attendance will contribute toward your CPD.

The course starts at 09:30 and finishes at 17:00 on both days.

Lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the course.
