The SWAT development team collaborates with other agencies/firms to set up workshops around the globe. The focus and length of these workshops will vary depending on the goals of the agencies involved.

SWAT Beginner Workshops

Our beginner courses are designed to introduce new users to the model, review necessary and optional inputs, and familiarize the user with the interface. It is assumed that attendees have a working knowledge of GIS and will not review basic concepts on GIS usage prior to covering the SWAT interface. This workshop may be offered for ArcSWAT (ArcGIS) or QSWAT (QGIS).

Advanced Workshops

The advanced workshop will cover sensitivity analysis, model calibration, and uncertainty analysis using SWAT. Time will also be devoted to discussion of participant's individual model issues (e.g. model setup, scenarios, calibration, and validation).

SWAT+ Workshops

This course introduces the next generation of the model, SWAT+. Using the QSWAT+ QGIS interface, we will set up our model and then review necessary and optional inputs through SWAT+ Editor. It is assumed that attendees have a working knowledge of QGIS and will not review basic concepts on QGIS usage prior to covering the SWAT+ interface.
