Global Online Training

In response to COVID-19, the TUFLOW team is replacing our highly valued classroom training with a variety of online training courses, which have the added benefit of allowing anyone globally to learn TUFLOW from the experts.

Importantly, we’re reducing class sizes down to a maximum of four trainees to ensure the same level of interaction and help occurs as for our highly regarded classroom training. We’ll also repeat courses throughout the year due to the smaller class sizes.

To register please fill out the registration form at the back of the flyer and email to training@tuflow.com.
