January 31, 2001–In response to increasing demand, Wolfram Research, Inc. has created Wolfram Education Group to provide Mathematica training for individuals and corporations. Wolfram Education Group offers courses developed and presented by instructors who have been certified through a rigorous training program themselves.
Wolfram Education Group has also developed the Education Benefits Program for employers. After establishing a training account, corporations earn credit from employee class enrollment and receive discounts on future training.
Designed for both novice and experienced Mathematica users, Wolfram Education Group courses are ideal for analysts, engineers, researchers, and other professionals, as well as for faculty members and students. Courses are delivered in a computerized classroom environment and offer step-by-step instruction and hands-on examples.
Wolfram Education Group’s first offering, “A First Course in Mathematica,” is a two-day introductory class that provides an overview of Mathematica and its wide variety of applications. Open-enrollment classes are currently scheduled in Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and New York City. Although designed primarily for novice users, “A First Course in Mathematica” is also recommended for experienced and recreational users who would like to broaden their basic understanding of Mathematica.
Wolfram Education Group plans to offer additional courses in locations across the United States and internationally. To aid in course development and need assessment, Wolfram Education Group is seeking feedback on locations and topics of interest. Individuals interested in Mathematica training are asked to take a moment to complete the Open Training Interest Survey on our web site.
