Virtual Classroom: Synchro Studio for Beginners

Category Synchro Studio
Training Level Basic
Length 2 Days
Cost $595

This is an online course that combines instructor lecture and hands-on examples. Each attendee will be provided with access to a virtual machine with the lastest build of Synchro Studio to facilitate example problems and instructor feedback.

This course covers the Synchro 10 signal timing software used to perform capacity analysis for signalized intersections, the SimTraffic 10 microscoptic simulation model, and the 3D Viewer software. Each course participant will receive hands-on experience creating and editing examples files. The purpose of the class is to provide an introduction to Synchro Studio for new users of the software and provide a refresher for those who may have used Synchro in the past but have taken a break from the software. Both the software inputs and outputs for Synchro and SimTraffic will be covered during this course.

Class will be held from 10:30am to 5:30pm EST, with a 1 hour break from 1:30-2:30pm EST.

What previous attendees are saying: "It was very hands on and very helpful being able to physically learn the settings of the new software and its capabilities... 9.9/10 hands-down!"
