Three-Day All Product Training Workshop - Korea

In this three-day workshop, learn to use Lumerical’s suite of products to address applications of current industrial and academic interest. Attendees will obtain a broad range of knowledge on the main product features that can be applied across a wide variety of applications. Users are expected to have a basic familiarity with the products which can be obtained by watching the product introductory webinars and/or using a trial version of the software. The course will cover an introduction to the products all the way to advanced topics, and is suitable for all levels, however, advanced users of the Lumerical software may choose to skip the optional first session.

There will be a pre-training survey sent to all attendees to identify the applications of greatest interest and the time spent on each application may be tailored accordingly.
