Introduction to using 'Scheduler'

Course Information

  • Price : £225 + VAT
  • Duration : 1 day

The course is very hands-on with delegates using Scheduler right from the start. The course will lead the delegates through all the steps required in Scheduler to produce a timetable. In the afternoon session (time permitting) you can put the theory into practice on your own data!

So if you are a brand new timetabler using Scheduler or interested in Scheduler then this is the course for you, as you can ask all the questions you need to! Or you may be a timetabler thinking of purchasing Scheduler, or thinking of transferring from TimeTabler or Nova T6 to Scheduler. The course leaders are familiar with all three software solutions so you can ask the questions you need to re-assure yourself.

If you new to timetabling we would suggest attending the Principles of Timetabling course as this will give you an important theoretical grounding in curriculum design and analysis before you begin the timetable.

If you would like the opportunity to work on your timetable and data with export guidance on hand we would suggest that you also consider attending a TimeTabling Workshop Day.

We operate small groups of a maximum trainer to delegate ratio of 1:8 and you will receive a certificate of attendance.
