Fabulous speaker! Well organized and structured training!

Peter Schack

Keep doing what you’re doing. The range of training is huge, and it should stay that way.

Stefan Macho
Head of R&D Simulation, HAWE Hydraulik SE

The course is didactically well structured. By alternating between presentation and workshop, attention is always maintained. The lively discussions and questions during the seminar were also very instructive for me. Therefore I am very enthusiastic about the CADFEM offering!

CADFEM offers various training options: classroom training, online seminars and eLearning.
Marc Vidal spoke with Stefan Macho, Head of R&D Simulation at HAWE Hydraulik, about his assessment of and personal experience with CADFEM's learning formats.

Frequently asked questions about the CADFEM seminars

Below you will find relevant information and assistance that is frequently requested. Do you have any further questions, suggestions or requests? Then feel free to contact us.

Can single course days also be booked?

CADFEM training courses are designed to enable every participant to achieve the learning objective. To do so, we put together the appropriate number of 90-minute learning units. If multiple employees in your company already have relevant prior knowledge at a comparable level or you wish to combine specific contents, a customized course is the right choice for you.

Can your training courses also be booked as e-Learning?

CADFEM offers selected training courses as self-paced eLearning option with identical content; other topics can only be booked as classroom or live online courses. In all courses, you decide for yourself when, where and at what intervals you continue your Ansys education. The new eLearning option was developed by CADFEM in collaboration with the ZEIT Akademie. You benefit from the proven training expertise of the CADFEM team and our instructors in the field of Ansys. All further education formats are coordinated to ensure that you can combine classroom courses and eLearning courses in ideal fashion.

What is the difference between a CADFEM training and a master’s-level course?

Simulation is more than software. In an academic further development program with CADFEM's university partners, you can get a glimpse behind the program interface. You learn the calculation algorithms, use analytical methods to simplify models and validate results, and understand the influence of all kinds of software parameters. The expertise you acquire will enable you to produce fast and reliable findings that answer key product improvement questions. To ensure your specialist or managerial career develops in the direction you want it to, we recommend a combination of both types of further education.

At what time do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

Do you offer special conditions for university employees and students?

For CADFEM, the collaboration between practice and science has always been a central aspect in developing upcoming generations of engineers. That’s why we offer discounted enrollment options whenever possible. You can find our current pricing conditions in the course descriptions. By the way, have you heard about the special 50% discount for university members and our Simulation Portal for Students with free Ansys courses?

Where can I find information about traveling to the training and accommodation?

At many CADFEM venues, we cooperate with hotels that offer special prices for our training course guests. If you indicate that you are attending a training on the booking screen, you will receive a hotel recommendation along with the sign-up confirmation. Booking and payment are handled directly with the hotel by you or your company. You can find further hotel recommendations at any time under the branch information.

Whom should I contact if I have more questions about booking or course organization?
