Training for our software
To use our software more efficiently in during design and building physics
practice, teaching, and research we offer training courses. While the courses
focus on the application of our software, we also cover fundamentals of building
physics and building science.
For courses and support in Belgium and The Netherlands (Flemish or English) please address to:
Individual training courses at the Institute for Building Climatology, or at
your company/institute are also possible. For software support or further courses please contact:

Current training sessions
Currently we offer training for our software COND and DELPHIN. The next DELPHIN course will take place on:
2 to 3 February 2017 - DELPHIN training in Oldenburg (German)
8 to 9 March 2017 - DELPHIN training in Dresden (German)
9 to 10 March 2017 - DELPHIN training in Brussels (English/Flemish)
The DELPHIN training courses are accredited as advanced education by Deutsche Energie Agentur DENA with 16 time units.
Special insulation systems or actual proceeding processes prone to damage cannot be modelled with simplified methods of calculation currently in practice (EN 13788, DIN 4108-2, etc.). Therefore the necessity of hygrothermal simulations is increasingly required by more recent regulations.
DELPHIN 5 enables the precise observation and evaluation of mechanisms within constructions. Heat, moisture and air transport processes are also taken into account.
DELPHIN 5 is particularly suitable for examining the impact of planned building projects or climate-related measures more closely or for investigating reasons for cases of damage.
The two-day introductory course in our software DELPHIN 5 is aimed at:
- Engineers and architects who would like to become more familiar with this subject matter
- Consultants who would like to use a comprehensive software with the latest models
- Scientists and students
The seminar is also interesting for non-DELPHIN 5 users: they learn to analyse and understand hygrothermal expertises better than many an authors of “expertises” themselves.
Additional One Day Course
An additional one-day course focuses on the consolidation of gained knowledge and the modelling of particular examples, e.g. air flow in constructions, modelling of wall heating or any particular problems the participants may have.
- Field of application of hygrothermal building component software
- Review of construction physics basics
- Introduction to material properties
- Generation of one- and two-dimensional constructions
- Analysis of results: existing evaluation criteria and examples of damage such as mould, wood destruction and frost damages
- Generation of own climates as well as special contact and field conditions
- Interesting and comprehensible representation of results

2-day basic course: 800 € p. p., each additional person from the same company: 500 €
The price includes lunch (in-house canteen), snacks and refreshments as well as seminar documentation.
If the minimum number of participants is not attained the organizer reserves the right to postpone the training.
Cancellations less than three weeks before the start of the course will incur a fee of 50 % of the overall course cost.
Registration can be transferred to another person at any time.
Our one-day COND seminar includes two topic groups:
- Fundamentals of prevention of moisture damage in buildings, and
- Using COND for construction design and expertises
Participants of the seminar receive a certificate of Participation on a seminar about prevention of moisture damage: Fundamentals of building physics and building science, design, and validation with DIN 4108-3 and COND.
