Aimsun Next Training Course: Core Skills & Meso, hybrid, macro

March 10-26

Course language: English

Time: : The tutor for this online course is based in Sydney, so the course will start at 9:00h and end at 13:00h (Australian Eastern Daylight Time).

Platform: We use Microsoft Teams for most of our online classes. If you have a software or security issue, please let us know and we will accommodate your needs.

How to install our software: Once you have signed up, we will send you two-step installation instructions for a temporary training license of Aimsun Next software. Please start this process 48 hours before the course starts to allow time for trouble shooting.

Our most popular training course, this is a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of building a model in Aimsun Next, with a focus on simulation at the microscopic level.



This course will take you all the way through the workflow of a typical project, from editing to traffic management, scenarios, outputs and calibration. There are hands-on exercises every step of the way to make sure you have mastered the basic concepts and you should finish this course ready to start experimenting with Aimsun Next software.
