NEW: Our 2-Day and 3-Day 3DPathFinder CityEngine training courses include a 3D mouse for each trainee! See this page for your choices. 

3DPathFinder is the name of our specialist Esri CityEngine training packages, the standard training packages range from 1 to 3 days long.  We can train you here in Cumbria or we can locate nearer to you, or even train you ‘on-site’ in your offices.   Training whilst following a course outline often diverges on the afternoon of the second day to cover the client’s workflows and data.  Every CityEngine training session ends up being customised to the trainees requirements.  

If you want more then we can customise even further for you.  We can not only train you in CityEngine but also help you complete your first project as well!  

Each training session covers core usage of CityEngine, it’s a complicated program that works in a variety of industries and workflows so we take you step by step through CGA coding and publishing of a webscene with swipeable scenarios.  We also discuss strategies for data importing as well as data acquisition. 

We have trained planners, GIS professionals, academics, as well as people in the military and intelligence industries.

No one else knows Esri CityEngine like we do and you will not find more comprehensive training anywhere else.
