Structural Analysis Computer System (SACS) training aims to provide intelligence on all new features of SACS. Through this SACS software training, the candidates would get introduced to the structural design of offshore platforms as well as the steel structure. Moreover, this course helps the candidates in paving their way for a better job opportunity in the CAD/CAM industry as the structural design of offshore platform expert.

After completing SACS -Offshore Structural Analysis , the candidates would be able to:
  • Understand the Platform Nomenclature
  • Learn how to use the Precede and Structural Wizard
  • Define the Member Code Check Properties
  • Understand how to set up the project, run files etc.
  • Learn about Precede, Data Generator and Editor
  • Learn about Data Extraction and Report Preparation
Target Audience

The course is ideal for the civil or structural engineers, who have to deal with the structural design offshore platform.


The candidates should have working experience in civil or architectural engineering to attend for this course.
