SimScale CPD for AEC Professionals — Certified by The CPD Certification Service

The Simulation for Environmental Design CPD by SimScale is an introduction to the topic with an emphasis on early-stage design and the use of specialist modeling tools. The CPD covers the importance and need for simulation tools for both performance and compliance. If you are an architect, engineer, or work in sustainability, this CPD will illustrate simulation for urban microclimate, thermal comfort, and air quality.
