The complete ANSYS FLUENT Introductory training is a 5 day training.

On day 1 the training will focus on geometry creation and specifically focus on ANSYS DesignModeler. If you know that you will be using ANSYS DesignModeler, then you should definitely plan on attending day 1 of training. Even if you don't plan on using ANSYS DesignModeler, this day of training could still be helpful since we will discuss some things to think about when creating geometries for CFD analyses and we will also talk about the geometry cleanup tools in ANSYS DesignModeler.

On day 2 the training will focus on creating your CFD meshes using ANSYS Meshing. If you will be using another program to create your CFD meshes, you may still find this day of training to be helpful because we will talk about some of the important things that you need to consider when creating CFD meshes.

On day 3 and 4 the training will focus on the FLUENT solver and how to setup, solve and post-process your results from ANSYS FLUENT. Day 5 of the training provides the students with the opportunity to start working on their first FLUENT analysis with guidance from the instructor or instructors involved in the training.
