At EDSL we regularly run two training courses; Tas Engineering and Tas Systems.

In order to get the most out of the software, the training courses are a pre-requisite to receiving support for the corresponding applications.

Upcoming Courses

Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak EDSL has cancelled all in person training courses.

In the meantime our new E-Training course is available for free at

Tas Engineering


Introduction to Systems


Courses start at 9:30am and finish at 4:30pm. Refreshments are provided throughout the day, and sandwiches are provided for lunch. 

The training courses are held at our office in Milton Keynes, and can be booked by the contact forms at the top and bottom of this page.

Tas Engineering Course

Duration: 3  days, 9:30am to 4:30pm

Cost: £990 + VAT

Pre-requisites: A pre-training exercise must be completed and submitted to EDSL prior to attending the course. 

This training course is designed for new users who have not previously attended any official Tas training.

Topics covered on the course include:

  • Modelling a building in the Tas 3D Modeller, using 2D DXF/DWG files as a guide.
  • Importing a model using the 3D gbXML format and making changes to an existing design.
  • Editing a model to make revisions to an existing design.
  • The use of windows, doors, rooflights and complex shading devices.
  • Using the UK Building Regulations studio to complete a Part L2 and EPC assessment.
  • Controlling apertures based on combinations of temperature, pollutant and wind speed.
  • Creating new materials and constructions and applying these to surfaces in the model.
  • Databases and the re-use of information across multiple projects.
  • Generating reports on annual loads, peak loads, overheating analysis and BB101 compliance.
  • Detailed Post-simulation analysis, right down to data on individual zones and/or surfaces.

 A printed set of training notes is provided for each attendee to keep to refer to later. 

Introduction to Systems

Duration: 1 day, 9:30am to 4:30pm

Cost: £330 + VAT

Pre-requisites: Tas Engineering training course attended within previous 36 months.

This training course is designed to teach the plant modelling capabilities Tas has to offer. 

In part 1, you will learn how to:

  • Use the new project wizard to quickly generate commonly used systems (e.g. Fancoils, VAV, CHP, Solar Hot Water etc.)
  • Setup tariff information for cost analysis
  • View results for consumptiondemandcosts and CO2 emissions
In part 2, you will learn how to:
  • Modify existing schemas to add components such as humidifiers
  • Use controls to model demand control ventilation
  • Create air side and water side HVAC configurations without using the wizard

 A printed set of training notes is provided for each attendee to keep to refer to later.
