UM16 Training Day Program


19 May 2016

ESTECO is pleased to announce the "UM16 Training Day" dedicated to modeFRONTIER enthusiasts that will be held the day after Users' Meeting, on 19th May 2016 in Trieste at "Savoia Excelsior Palace" (map) .

The training involves an Academy Basic course and an Advanced course in the morning, whereas in the afternoon there will be two Technical focus courses. ESTECO will offer the possibility to choose between two tracks for both the morning and afternoon sessions. If you are attending the course, please remember to bring your own laptop.

The training is reserved to all UM16 delegates and to all ESTECO Academy members. Don't miss out, read the Training Program and choose your Track!
