19—23 August, 2024

AnyLogic training for professionals and academics. Learn how to build simulation models from scratch, relevant Java programming, and develop your AnyLogic simulation modelling skills.

This is a hands-on course, based on official AnyLogic material. It blends conceptual understanding and simulation development in a series of model construction exercises. These aim to cover key AnyLogic capabilities in a cumulative way, whilst also giving you insight into advanced features.

To allow for work schedules, the course is taught in five half-day blocks of four hours each.

Certificates are issued on satisfactory completion of the course.

At the course, it is recommended to use a laptop computer that can run AnyLogic (system requirements) and a mouse. A second monitor is very useful, so you can view the electronic notes alongside the online session or your AnyLogic window.

No knowledge of Java programming is required but it may help with understanding more advanced concepts.
