SoundPLAN User Training Workshop
Noise Contour Examples from SoundPLAN training

The 2 day SoundPLAN Software Training  is intended for those engineers and technicians with little or no experience with SoundPLAN software and for users who have not had any formal SoundPLAN 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.

Course fee includes manual, laboratory material, lunches & refreshments. 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.

A $150 discount will be applied to all registrations / payments received 60 days prior to the seminar.
