Training Overview

TESS offers training courses at their offices in Madison, Wisconsin approximately 2-3 times per year. The course covers both basic and advanced TRNSYS features and techniques and is intended to be of interest to both the novice and experienced TRNSYS user. Additional time can be made available for discussing some of the lesser known TRNSYS capabilities; namely CONTAM, an air flow modeling program written by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. CONTAM and TRNSYS can be easily linked to perform powerful combined thermal / air flow simulations. Participants are encouraged to attend the entire three day course but are welcome to attend only a portion of it as well. Course tuition discounts are given for multiple days, and for multiple attendees from a single company Break snacks, breakfast and lunches are provided to all attendees. Local hotel discounts can also be arranged.


Laptop Computers

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop computer. Each participant will access their computer throughout the course for hands-on training. It is not necessary that participants own TRNSYS as it will be installed on all course computers.


Teaching Staff

David Bradley – (MSME)

David spent 1997 to 2001 working as TRNSYS coordinator at the Solar Energy Lab, developing TRNSYS and coordinating the efforts of the other three TRNSYS developers. He joined TESS after spending the spring of 2001 working for the French TRNSYS developer in Nice and has taught TRNSYS courses more times than he cares to remember in both English and French.
