Whether you are a new ProteusDS user or a seasoned pro, regular professional development and software training can build skills within your company that will improve your bottom-line by ensuring you are using the most effective tools and processes.

We’ve compiled some of the top reasons to invest in ProteusDS software training:

#1 Keep up with industry changes

Ocean engineering best practices are always evolving, to avoid being left behind it’s important for you and your business to keep on top of them. At DSA we work across many ocean sectors which give us a tremendous knowledge base to draw upon in training sessions. To the benefit of all attendees, standards and recommended practices for analyses are frequently discussed during training.

#2 Keep in touch with the latest features

New features within ProteusDS are developed all the time! Our team announces these advancements in all our major releases updates. In a training session, you can discover first-hand how these new features are used. In addition, not every feature is discussed in the tutorials or in release announcements. We often dive into these lesser-known features in our training sessions.

#3 Keep one step ahead of the competition

Training helps users be more productive and efficient. Huge investments in tools without the appropriate training can signify inefficiencies that affect your company’s competitiveness. We find that users who invest in training find new and better ways to ProteusDS that save their businesses time and money.

#4 Keep connected with the software developers

Training with the software developers has three significant benefits. First, you are learning from the experts. Second, if you are encountering complex issues or have concerns with your simulations these issues are addressed quickly and efficiently.  Lastly, training sessions provide an invaluable opportunity for you to give feedback to DSA that can guide future developments that will make your ProteusDS usage more efficient and tailored to your specific needs.
