Trainings

GreenDelta provides training courses for openLCA in English, GermanSpanish and Italian  on a regular basis. We offer different kinds of trainings for beginners and advanced users. Trainings take place in Berlin, in-house or online, either one-on-one or in groups.

For trainings in other languages or countries you can also contact one of our partners.

Group training

The group training covers the basic and intermediate use of openLCA that lasts 2-3 days and the participant will receive training materials (manuals, exercises, etc.) for specific topics to gain a better understanding of the use and all functions of the software. These training sessions are held in three modes: Online, In-house and at our office in Berlin.
