SoundPLAN User Training Web based Workshop
Noise Contour Examples from SoundPLAN training

The 2 day SoundPLANnoise software training is intended for those engineers and technicians with little or no experience with the SoundPLANnoise software and for users who have not had any formal SoundPLANnoise training.  Attendees will develop several  noise models and predict the noise from an industrial plant, local roads, a rail system, a race track, a construction site  and a performing arts area.  We will discuss data & project organization and input & results documentation.

As part of the training we will load a fully functional copy of the noise modeling software SoundPLANnoise on your computer with a 30 day license.  The software will be used for the exercises.

Course fee includes manual and laboratory material. All registrations and cancellations must be received 2 weeks prior to the start of class. Substitute attendees may be made at any time. The attendees are asked to bring their laptop.  If the attendee can not bring a laptop Navcon can provide a laptop for the training.  Please brind a memory stick to back up all project and software when the training is completed.

The training fee includes lunch and refreshment (i.e., coffee, tea, soda, water).  Vegetarian lunch option is avaiable on request.
