The IMESA 2011 Conference and Expo
It was great to see many of you at the IMESA 2011 expo and for us to catch up with existing clients and meet new faces. IMESA is always one of the enjoyable civil engineering events of the year. As always the competition was enjoyed by all and congratulations to the winners.

The Gautrain Technical tour was a great idea and much appreciated. It makes us proud to know that Civil Designer was used for a large portion of it by HHO. You can read up on the showcase story if you have not already read it: www.civildesigner.com/showcase/hho/gautrain.asp

We look forward to seeing you next year at the 2012 conference.

Invest in training for 2012
NOW IS THE TIME TO OPTIMISE YOUR SKILLS

With all the proposed infrastructure spend for 2012, now is the time to invest in your software expertise and efficiency.

Our specialised courses are conducted at the Knowledge Base training centres in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. We also offer focused in-house 'project training' where tuition is conducted on your premises and where specific trouble shooting areas within your organisation are addressed. This method of instruction allows the delegate to explore the program's full capabilities within the context of existing in-house projects.

Teaching methods include one-on-one tuition in a class of not more than 8 delegates to facilitate greater interaction between the delegate and the trainer. The learner-centred approach has been designed to orientate and equip delegates with the necessary skills to contribute to improved work efficiency through enhanced application of the software.
