Partnering with SAP Configuration Workgroup (CWG)


 Training Workshops in conjunction with CWG Conferences

vctraining - mr instructor90x120eSpline has presented several 2-Day training workshops after the North American and European CWG Conferences.  Both a Basic VC Modeling and a Advanced VC Modeling are among the workshops.  We have also offered an 2-Day IPC Technical workshop (no longer available). The Basic VC Modeling workshop is oriented to the novice user and has been offered at the 2007 through 2014 Marco Island Conferences.  More Information...

eSpline introduced training for CWG attendees immediately after the 2007 North American Conference in Marco Island and continued that precedent in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 after both the European and North American conferences.   At the time, we were the exclusive provider of IPC 5.0 Training and now offer a unique training workshop oriented toward Advanced VC Modeling techniques.  These workshops are each offered along with the Basic VC Modeling Workshop after the CWG Conferences when there is adequate demand.
