In accordance with our plans for OpenFOAM Training during COVID-19, CFD Direct have rescheduled all classroom courses as a live virtual training class until further notice. With over 50 virtual courses behind us since 2016, it is proven to be an extremely effective substitute to classroom training.

CFD Training at dedicated facilities, led by a recognised OpenFOAM expert. Hands-on experience, with peer interaction, to accelerate learning and increase confidence.

100% open source: one-time investment in staff skills without recurring licence fees. From the Architects of OpenFOAM.
