HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling - Since 1986


Web-Based Training

We're pleased to announce the availability of free web-based training seminars (webinars).  Each program will devote one hour to a specific topic, providing the opportunity for detailed examination of subjects that are not feasible to cover with traditional training solutions.  These are live sessions, with the opportunity to ask questions and discuss specific issues with the presenter.

Upcoming sessions will focus on new features added in HydroCAD-10.  Sessions will cover underground chamber modeling, CAD watershed data extraction, and a general review of new features.  Later sessions will cover a wider range of existing HydroCAD features and applications.  Most sessions will be personally conducted by HydroCAD developer and CEO, Peter Smart.

Please select a session below for further details.  Recording of previous sessions are also available.

Custom Web Sessions

Private web training and consultation is available for customers who prefer a custom session.  Typical cost for a 2-hour session is $500, for up to 10 attendees.  For details contact   However, we suggest that you first review the large selection of pre-recorded sessions listed below, which have been found to cover 99% of all training requirements.  A private session can then be arranged to cover any remaining issues in greater detail.

Recorded Sessions on

The following sessions have been recorded and are available for immediate viewing on our YouTube channel or by downloading the  full-resolution Windows Media (WMV) file.  Most recordings are approximately 60-minutes duration.  Since the WMV files are approximately 60 megabytes in size, we recommend that you download the desired file (right-click the link) and then view the file after the download is complete.  Some computers may also be able to view the video stream directly.  To stream the video using Firefox or Google Chrome you may need this plugin.
