GRANTA MI training

Granta provides training to help you with any aspect of the implementation or use of Granta software. Training can be conducted via the Web or in person. Regular online and in-person training is also a benefit of Consortium membership.

  • Specialist training – specialized one-to-one training/support on the more advanced options for applying GRANTA MI, such as implementing in-house tools or configuring GRANTA MI reports.
