"With the release of Gridgen Version 13 with its greatly expanded capabilities, now is the time for both novice and long-time Gridgen users to come up to speed on the latest release." said Erick Gantt, Pointwise's customer support manager. " Clients can learn about the new triangular and tetrahedral meshing and the grid quality diagnostics. Plus, training is a great way to initiate a dialogue that forms the basis of our ongoing support relationship."

The three day training course is taught by members of the Pointwise staff who have years of applied Gridgen experience in industry. It comprises both lecture and hands-on sessions. During the lecture sessions the instructors describe and demonstrate in detail all aspects of Gridgen's operation from how to use the user interface to exporting the final volume grid formatted for specific CFD analysis software. A bound volume containing the lecture notes is provided to each attendee. Interspersed throughout the lectures are hands-on sessions in which the instructors coach the attendees through the construction of one or more grids.

The fee for the two day training course is $2,000 per person. A discounted fee of $1,500 is available for attendees from recognized academic institutions. The fee for additional days of one-on-one training is $1,500 per day. Because of the hands-on nature of the training, attendance is limited.

Gridgen Training Courses are also available at customer sites. For 6 or fewer attendees the fee is $10,000. For 7-25 attendees the fee is $15,000. The course logistics, including workstations, are the responsibility of the customer.
