Typical content of group training courses

All courses contain both theoretical and practical parts, based on illustrative case studies. Content is coordinated with all participants well before the training. A two-day course for beginners covers for instance the following topics:

  • The four phases of an LCA
  • First steps and basic functions
  • Available data and data exchange
  • Creating processes and flows
  • Working with product systems and projects
  • Result analysis and interpretation
  • Modeling with parameters
  • Sensitivity analysis
  • Allocation and system expansion
  • Tips and tricks

optional topics include:

  • End-of-life modeling
  • Uncertainty analysis
  • Data conversion
  • Life Cycle Costing with openLCA
  • Social Life Cycle Assessment with openLCA
  • Regionalized LCIA
  • Scripting
  • Working with ecoinvent or GaBi
  • Environmental Product Declarations

Remote training courses

Note! We are currently updating the remote training courses, but you can still order the “old” version at the moment (see below).

The remote training is an advanced openLCA training course that lasts 3 months and the participant will receive training materials (manuals, exercises etc.) for specific topics to gain a deeper understanding of the use and all functions of the software. Regular web meetings are organized to make sure all questions are answered. The following topics can be covered:

  • Module A: Modeling with parameters
  • Module B: Calculation and interpretation of LCI and LCIA results
  • Module C1: Modelling of complex product systems: Allocation, system expansion and uncertainty analysis
  • Module C2: Modelling of complex product systems: Modeling LCA stages and internal recycling/loops
  • Module D: End-of-Life modeling
  • Module E: ecoinvent v3 database
