Application Workshop Catalog

Unlike a webinar, these workshops allow for hands-on usage of the software by using our virtual training infrastructure. In addition to web and voice conferencing, participants will use a cloud-based installation of aspenONE software to complete the workshop exercises – just like we do in other AspenTech training classes.

Below are the Application Workshops currently taught by AspenTech. Click on the Application Workshop you are interested in to see the Application Workshop description along with dates where it is being offered.
