Introduction to using 'Nova T6'

Course Information

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

The course is very hands-on with delegates using Nova T6 right from the start. The course will lead the delegates through all the steps required in Nova T6 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 Nova T6 or interested in Nova T6 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 Nova T6, thinking of transferring from TimeTabler or Facility Scheduler to Nova T6. The course leaders are familiar with all three software solutions so you can ask the questions you need to re-assure yourself.

If you are new to timetabling you may wish to attend the Principles of Timetabling course first. For more advanced strategies with Nova T6 please see the Advanced Timetabling with Nova T6 course.

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