Online Course: 2D Water Modelling with HEC-RAS – February 2020

Sorry this course is now FULL!

Master the powerful features of HEC-RAS to build 2D models through the new versions additional features and tools, with improved modelling capabilities and faster run times. Includes up to one hour of optional one-on-one screen-sharing time with the instructor to assist with troubleshooting or to set up or optimise your own project model.

These interactive, mentoring sessions provide a unique opportunity to ask questions as you build a model with your presenter, Krey Price, a highly experienced HEC-RAS user with extensive software development and lecturing experience. His career includes 15 years of developing hydraulic models for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Places are limited to allow for greater interaction. Register quickly to secure your place!
