Training to Empower Your Teams

Events and Training

ATA offers training classes that can be standard courses or customized to your engineering team’s specific needs in a broad range of engineering disciplines. We hold these courses both at ATA facilities and on site at customer locations.

ATA has unique experience providing basic and advanced Simcenter Nastran training. In addition to being responsible for the development of this courseware, ATA is the preferred North American provider of instructor-led courses for this solver. Introductory and advanced courses using Femap or Simcenter as the pre- and post-processors are available for dynamic analysis, finite element analysis, DDAM, superelement analysis, coupled structure/acoustic analysis, design sensitivity and optimization, rotor dynamics, and aeroelastic analysis. Introductory and advanced Femap courses are also available.

  • ATA has more than a decade of experience in the development of training materials for a variety of engineering software packages.

  • ATA has a cooperative courseware development agreement with Siemens Digial Industries Software in support of its Simcenter Nastran software, one of the company’s flagship computer-aided engineering products. Under this agreement, ATA is responsible for the development of training course materials for the Simcenter Nastran finite element analysis software suite and the Simcenter Response Simulation add-on module for forced response dynamics.

  • Training materials cover the full range of Simcenter Nastran capabilities, including basic static analysis, basic and advanced dynamic analysis, forced dynamic response, direct matrix abstraction programming (DMAP), aeroelasticity, rotor dynamics, optimization and sensitivity analysis, and coupled structural/acoustics analysis.

  • Simcenter Nastran courses are offered for both of Siemens Digital Industries Software’s 3D simulation solutions, Femap software and Simcenter 3D.

  • In addition to being responsible for the development of this courseware, ATA is the preferred North American provider of instructor-led courses for Simcenter Nastran. These courses provide hands-on instruction with the Simcenter Nastran and Simcenter 3D Response Simulation software through lecture and reinforced with extensive workshops.

Training Facilities

ATA’s headquarters in San Diego, California, contains a 3,000 square foot training facility with seating for eighty people, equipped with dual 90 inch LCD TVs, workstations, integrated sound system with wireless microphones, web camera, and Wi-Fi, offering students a state-of-the-art training experience. Our Denver and Washington, D.C., offices also house dedicated training facilities that are regularly used for classes and other events.

In addition to hosting standard classes at our facilities in San Diego, ATA also provides custom training that can be tailored to your specific needs and on-site training at your facilities. If you are interested in custom or on-site classes, please contact us to discuss your needs.
