PhotoModeler Training Courses

General Courses

Training workshops are available to PhotoModeler users at their location for groups of six or more people.  The workshops can be a basic overview or advanced product training, in an in-person classroom setting or virtual. The 3-day or 4-day course covers a wide range of topics such as proper photography methods, using basic tools, using advanced tools, and working with complex projects.  There are no public versions of this course.

The Tutorials included with the PhotoModeler products, available online, are excellent training resources and suitable for many customers but for those that prefer a classroom setting, these training courses are available to your organization.

If you have a group of six or more people interested in general PhotoModeler training, please email us at sales@photomodeler.com.

Collision Reconstruction Courses

PhotoModeler Training Courses for Collision Reconstruction are taught publicly and can be taught to a group at your location. This three or four-day course will cover all of the award-winning PhotoModeler features that make it a valuable measurement tool in the reconstructionist’s toolbox. Right now, the public course is being taught exclusively online.

Fabrication Measurement One-on-One

The One-on-One Fabrication Measurement Training is taught online for those working in bespoke fabrication industries such as marine deck measurement, swimming pool covers, kitchen/bath glazing, RV graphics, window well covers, etc. While our technical support department is always available at no cost to those with active maintenance or subscriptions, and we have several good training videos, sometimes you may need more guidance or more structured assistance learning the photo-based measurement methods. On-site training is also available for larger groups – please contact sales@photomodeler.com.
