Our Remote Training Courses
As the Covid-19 pandemic means that many organisations still do not know when they will allow face-to-face training, we are continuing to offer a number of one-day courses that will be delivered remotely. Information on these courses and how to book is given below.
For information on all the services we will be offering during the Covid-19 crisis, please see our dedicated page.
In addition, we are now an IET Academy Content Partner. The IET Academy is the Institution of Engineering and Technology‘s e-learning platform, providing expert online courses developed with leading academic and industry organisations.
Our first course, An Introduction to SysML, is now live and available to purchase through the IET Academy, giving you a self-paced introduction to the fundamentals of the Systems Modelling Language.
Overview of our Course Offerings
Introduction to MBSE
A one-day introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering, covering: MBSE in One Slide, evolution of MBSE in your organisation, modelling (what, where, when, how etc.), fundamentals of SysML, the benefits of MBSE.
Introduction to SysML
A one-day introduction to the SysML modelling language, covering: modelling (what, where, when, how etc.), structural & behavioural modelling, an overview of the 9 SysML diagrams.NOTE: This course builds on the SysML element from ‘Introduction to MBSE‘, covering the notation in greater detail.
This one-day course is aimed at systems and software engineers that have a working knowledge of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML (or UML) and who want to develop their MBSE skills by learning how to develop architecture frameworks and patterns in a robust, consistent, model-based way. The course teaches Scarecrow’s Framework for Architectural Frameworks (FAF), a model-based approach to defining architecture frameworks.
Interfaces (The Interface Pattern)
This one-day course is aimed at systems and software engineers that have a working knowledge of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML (or UML) and who want to develop their MBSE skills by learning how to model interfaces in a robust, consistent, model-based way. The course teaches Scarecrow’s Interface Pattern, a model-based enabling pattern that gives a framework in which to model interfaces in terms of their definition, connectivity, behaviour and protocols. The pattern supports service-based interfaces (such as between software components where one directly invokes the services provide by the other) and also supports flow-based interfaces (such as data on a data bus, fluid along a pipe, people between sites). The Interface Pattern is defined and documented using the FAF, covered on our ‘Architecture Frameworks’ course; attendance on that course is not necessary in order to attend this Interfaces course.
Introduction to Context-Based Requirements Engineering
A one-day introduction to Context-Based Requirements Engineering, covering: introduction to requirements engineering, essential requirements terminology and concepts (requirement descriptions; requirement rules; requirement sources; stakeholder identification; context identification; context definition; validation of requirements) the requirements ontology & framework.
A one-day course covering the areas that have to be considered when planning an MBSE deployment. The course covers: capturing the reasons for deploying MBSE in your organisation, understanding your MBSE capabilities (current and desired), understanding where you are on the MBSE evolutionary path and where you want to be, identifying the tasks needed to move your organisation along the path.

Book: ‘Don’t Panic! The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering’
Remote training courses will be charged at £400 plus VAT per person per day for public courses and for in-company courses with less than 7 delegates. If you are interested in arranging an in-company course with 7 or more delegates, then the cost for the course is £2500 plus VAT per day for a maximum of 12 delegates.
- an electronic (PDF) copy of the course notes. These will be sent out immediately prior to course delivery.
- an e-book version of ‘Implementing MBSE into your Organisation – The Trinity Approach’ for delegates on the Deploying MBSE course.
- an e-book version of ‘Don’t Panic! The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering’ for delegates on any of the other courses.
We also offer the option to add the relevant published course book to the electronic notes. This will incur an additional charge, depending on the book most suitable for the course:
- £150 plus VAT– Courses that are based around ‘SysML for Systems Engineering – 3rd edition: A model-based approach’
- £100 plus VAT – Courses that are based around ‘Foundations for Model-Based Systems Engineering: From Patterns to Models’
- £30 plus VAT – Courses that are based around ‘Don’t Panic! The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering’
- £70 plus VAT – Courses that are based around ‘Implementing MBSE into your Organisation – The Trinity Approach’
For details of these books, see our publications page.
Please note: If booking less than a week before the start of the course, it may not be possible to get a book to you prior to course delivery. In such cases, it will be sent as soon as possible after the course.
How To Book
To reserve a place on one of these courses, please complete the form below. If you are booking for multiple delegates, please include all of their names and email addresses and whether you want printed notes & a book for each delegate; this information can be added to the Message field in the contact form.
On receipt of your booking, we shall send a confirmatory email and an invoice. Invoices can be paid at any time and must be paid at least seven days prior to the course date. If you book within seven days before the course, then payment is required immediately. Once the invoice is paid, we shall confirm payment and provide information on how to join the course.
The courses will be delivered through Microsoft Teams as Teams meetings, which can be accessed from anywhere in the world. We will also use the Mural collaborative whiteboard tool.
You do not need either a Microsoft account or Teams installed to join a Teams meeting, as you can join as a guest through a web browser. Similarly for Mural, which can be accessed through a web browser.
