Four-Session Live Online Training Course - 2 hours per session

FULL DETAILS WILL BE PROVIDED UPON REGISTRATION.
This is the course that design, project, and test engineers, and even managers should attend as a first step toward engineering simulation democratization. This course will empower the non-specialist to understand the value and purpose of up-front engineering simulation and optimize its implementation in analysis-driven design.
More and more, engineering simulation is being geared toward design engineers for initial sizing, configuration, and other decisions at the concept stage. The idea is to minimize the cost of design and development by avoiding costly corrections later in the development process as well as time-consuming back and forth between the design engineer and engineering analyst.
However, engineering simulation is only as good as the user’s understanding of it. In this course, the non-specialist will learn the fundamentals necessary for understanding simulation's role in the design process.
Throughout the course, the students will be engaged and challenged through a number of in-session exercises. This interaction between the students and instructor will solidify the students’ understanding of the material and accelerate their adoption of an engineering analysis mindset.
You can either attend the live sessions or take the course on-demand at your leisure.
NAFEMS e-learning gives you the best of both worlds, giving you real, practical knowledge that you can use day-to-day to improve your analyses.
The course aims to provide design engineers, project engineers, and other non-specialists with the fundamentals necessary for the optimal implementation of engineering simulation in the analysis-driven design process.
Mechanical design changes and corrections are easiest and cheapest when engineering simulation is incorporated early in the design process. Unfortunately, the lack of fundamental understanding of simulation among non-specialists presents a hurdle to the effective adoption and implementation of up-front simulation tools at the concept stage.
This course will help you and your organization clear those hurdles and help you optimize your analysis-driven design process.
Note: homework is purely voluntary!
Students will join the audio portion of the meetings by utilizing the VoIP (i.e. headset connected to the computer via headphone and microphone jacks) or by calling into a standard toll line. If you are interested in additional pricing to call-in using a toll-free line, please send an email to: e-learning @ nafems.org .
Note: This is a four-week course. Each session represents one 2-hour session each week.
Telephony surcharges may apply for attendees who are located outside of North America, South America and Europe. These surcharges are related to individuals who join the audio portion of the web-meeting by calling in to the provided toll/toll-free teleconferencing lines. We have made a VoIP option available so anyone attending the class can join using a headset (headphones) connected to the computer. There is no associated surcharge to utilize the VoIP option, and is actually encouraged to ensure NAFEMS is able to keep the e-Learning course fees as low as possible. Please send an email to the e-Learning coordinator (e-learning @ nafems.org ) to determine if these surcharges may apply to your specific case.
Just as with a live face-to-face training course, each registration only covers one person. If you plan to register a large group (10+), please send an email to e-learning @ nafems.org in advance for group discounts.

Engineering Board PDH Credits
*It is your individual responsibility to check whether these e-learning courses satisfy the criteria set-out by your state engineering board. NAFEMS does not guarantee that your individual board will accept these courses for PDH credit, but we believe that the courses comply with regulations in most US states (except Florida, North Carolina, Louisiana, and New York, where providors are required to be pre-approved).
