SoundPLAN User Training Web based Workshop
Noise Contour Examples from SoundPLAN training

The 3 day SoundPLAN Software online training is intended for those engineers and technicians with little or no experience with SoundPLAN software and for users who have not had any formal SoundPLAN training.  Attendees will develop several  noise models and predict the noise from an industrial plant, local roads, a rail system, a race track, a construction site  and a performing arts area.  We will discuss data & project organization and input & results documentation.
The training is presented using WebEx. To attend the training, we suggest to a computer with two monitors. One monitor to follow the meeting and presentation and a 2nd monitor to run applicaitons.  As part of the training we will load a fully functional copy of the noise modeling software SoudPLANnoise on your computer with a 30 day license.  The softwaer will be used for the exercises.

Course fee includes manual and laboratory material. All registrations and cancellations must be received 2 weeks prior to the start of class. Substitute attendees may be made at any time. The attendees are asked to bring their laptop.
