21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)
Students who wish to attend this course are not required to have any prior exposure to system modelling but should have a solid grasp of “document centric” systems engineering techniques.
This course is offered in two variants to provide a practical understanding of how systems can be modelled using the newest version of OMG's Systems Modelling Language (SysML) specification. The notation and underlying semantics of SysML are explained in a way that allows students to apply what they learn to any suitable system modelling method or tool.

a lot of practical exercises
I liked the training was well divided between theory and exercises.
I mostly liked his subject knowledge and style.
Exercise done immediately after each diagram session.
I mostly liked the approach and topic driving.
I mostly liked summarizing and highlighting important topics.
That Filip has the whole SysML standard in mind and was able to answer every question.
