Training is available by the software authors and experienced modellers. Users can also self-train, preferably with assistance from an experienced modeller by using the Tutorial Models. The general options for training are:
And, of course, our TUFLOW Support team are available to help out with any queries you have. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (include your contact phone number) for a trainer to contact you to discuss options and to provide a quote.
Generic training courses are available using the Tutorial Model or other available models. This form of training is suited to larger groups or where a case study is not available for project based training. By using the Tutorial Model users can progress at different speeds depending on their level of expertise. Generic courses usually extend over two to four days, depending on the size and experience of the group.
For online courses these are usually spread over several half days with smaller class numbers to ensure good progression through the course content.
The most effective form of training is customised, project based training. In most situations the training focuses on the trainee(s) developing a working model for a study or project with guidance by the trainer. This has proven to be very effective in meeting the specific needs of the trainee(s) and maximises the trainee(s) learning. In addition, some/all of the training fees can often be recouped via the study's budget. The aim of the training is to produce a working model, and to cover all the features that the modeller requires so that they can continue to construct and finish the model after the training has finished.
The length of training needed varies considerably depending on the experience and number of trainee(s), and the range of features to be covered. Usually two to five days should be allowed for, and suits small groups of one to four.

There is a wealth of material and numerous models that run licence free available via the TUFLOW Wikis.
For TUFLOW Classic/HPC 1D and 2D grid based modelling see the Wiki Tutorial Model to follow step-by-step instructions. A host of free example Models are also available from which you can learn from (it's so much easier if you have an example!). Visit the the Main TUFLOW Wiki Page and follow the links to the different Demo/Example Models.
Similarly for TUFLOW FV 1D/2D/3D flexible mesh modelling visit the Main TUFLOW FV Wiki Page to work through the available tutorial models.
If you'd rather get started using our introductory modelling videos, watch our educational modelling videos to learn when and how to apply TUFLOW along with useful tips and tricks using GIS and other software.
You can also gain much insight from the decades of wisdom accrued by our TUFLOW experts through our Expert Webinar series.
Annual one day workshops are given, typically in the lead-up to or following a major release. These workshops are usually for a day with presentations from the TUFLOW developers on the new features and functionality of the new release.
The UK/Europe TUFLOW Conference is held every second year (not in 2020 though due to COVID-19!) instead of the workshops. This two-day event brings together both TUFLOW modellers and the wider industry to discuss not only modelling but also flood risk management practices and trends within the UK and Europe.
