GreenDelta provides training courses for openLCA in English, German, and Spanish 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.

If none of the upcoming training dates suit your needs, you can request a new training course.
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
- 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
