2015 Chief Academy

Once every two years, Chief Architect hosts a Training and User Group Meeting in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (headquarters for Chief Architect). For 2015, we are more closely integrating the two events since both provide in-depth learning.

A total of four two-day Training classes will be offered. Three of these, Introductory, Intermediate, and Kitchen, Bath & Interiors, feature structured agendas designed to guide you through recommended drawing practices. A fourth class, Advanced Topics, focuses on tools and techniques of interest to experienced Chief Architect users.

Our User Group Meeting offers similar opportunities for learning, but in an hour-long Seminar format. Engineers and domain experts discuss specific tools and demonstrate their uses in common use-case scenarios, from framing to Ray Tracing. User Group Seminars are organized into two tracks: Building and Interiors, Kitchens & Baths. You can choose which 1-hour seminars to attend throughout the day.

If you choose, you can sign up for only Training ($895) or only the User Group Meeting ($395). The cost of the combined event is $1095 and is inclusive of all activities (Training, User Group, lunches and the evening events).

Signup for the combined event ($1,095) for the best value. And, if you sign-up by August 14, you will receive an additional 10% discount on top of your SSA discount lowering the event cost even further ($886.95). Enter Discount Code UGM2015 at checkout.
