PTV China recently organized a PTV Software training course, which took place from 7-11 March 2016 in Xiamen, a flourishing coastal city in southern China.

This time, we invited Torsten Beutin, Support Consultant & Training Specialist, PTV Group, to offer 3D, VAP/VisVAP, Meso & Dynamic and COM training sessions as part of our four-day event. At the same time we provided extensive VISUM training courses, including VISUM Basic, 4-Step-Modelling, Scenario Management and GIS. 30 participants from different provinces and scientific backgrounds joined our PTV Vissim/Visum courses. All attendees were very interested in the new training contents like COM and Meso that Torsten presented for the first time to the Chinese specialists.

Xiamen Transportation Research Centre, which was established last year, decided to use PTV Traffic Suite including Visum, Vissim and Vistro to tackle the traffic issues of the cosmopolitan city of Xiamen,” says Peter Möhl, Regional Director Americas, MENA, Asia/Pacific, PTV Group. “Team members from the Research Centre, among other organisations, also came to the one-week training which was very productive and useful. I am confident that with the Research Centre, Xiamen is now in safe hands in terms of addressing the transportation needs and issues the city is facing.”
