A Comprehensive Course in
Water Distribution Modelling

Using MIKE+ Water Distribution

An online, self-paced course combined with private virtual meetings with a DHI urban water tutor

This course teaches you how to address water distribution modelling in a comprehensive and holistic way. It enables you to consolidate and develop your modelling skills to a level where you can apply your knowledge across a variety of water distribution projects.

Bonus: Completing this course unlocks your ability to enrol in more advanced MIKE+ training courses.

Affordable and convenient high-quality technical training!

Do you work in the field of water supply or water distribution?

Do you have a basic knowledge of pipe network hydraulics?

Then you’re ready to learn how to set up water distribution models, run simulations and analyse results across water distribution projects using MIKE+.

All you have to do is complete a 12-module, self-paced course from the comfort of your own convenient location and arrange two 30-minute online sessions with a DHI urban water tutor to monitor your progress and discuss your challenges.

As a bonus, you get 1-2 hours of extra course materials per session so you can dive even deeper via self-study into the features of MIKE+ Water Distribution software.

Course details

This is a self-paced, online course where learning is through video lectures, demonstration videos and quizzes, hands-on exercises and reading materials.

Each of the 12 modules is approximately 60 minutes (one hour). Additionally, you get two 30-minute virtual meetings with your own DHI urban tutor to help optimise learning processes.

To reach course learning objectives you are expected to complete all 12 modules and the two tutoring sessions within 30 days of receiving receipt of your free Internet license.
