Lambda Research Corporation proposes the Course "Introduction to TracePro" that will be hold next September 14th and 15th 2021 from 16:00 CEST to 18:00 CEST.

This four-hour, instructor-led, online training course will provide the attendee with a great starting point for using TracePro and getting useful results right away. This course will be a mixture of lecture and hands-on examples. In the examples we will develop a model from beginning to end, from model creation to final analysis. A digital copy of the course notes will be supplied to all attendees. Attendees wishing to complete the examples during the class must provide their own TracePro license.
