Advanced BioWin

Advanced Level BioWin Training

  • 2-day interactive course
  • US$825 per person at our Hamilton, Ontario offices

The advanced BioWin course is designed to cover a range of topics on application of BioWin. The assumption is that the majority of attendees are “experienced” BioWin users. The primary objectives are to provide information on certain model details, and to cover a range of example applications of BioWin.

Course Information

Course Format

The advanced training course has the following format:

  • Two day (16 hour) course.
  • The course is hands-on and consists of a series of case studies and discussions designed to demonstrate BioWin features.
  • We supply course manuals, a number of spreadsheets used as “tools” and a light lunch on both days.
  • The number of attendees is usually in the range of 10 to 12.
  • Attendees will need to bring their own laptop computers for the hands on sessions, but we will provide copies of BioWin for the duration of the course.
