This workshop teaches delegates how to create RTF templates in order to generate company documentation straight from Enterprise Architect. Creating document templates is an essential project task but also typically a specialised skill.

Tassc's consultant/trainer will guide delegates through all the key aspects and subtleties of RTF report generation in a highly practical 1-day workshop. This workshop can be extended to a second day to guide delegates in creating company specific document templates.

Tassc offers on-site workshops and training courses throughout the UK and Europe. Tassc is an authorised training partner for Sparx Systems Australia and provides formal training, consulting and hands-on mentoring in Enterprise Architect, UML, SysML and BPMN.

Tassc launches two new SysML training courses for Enterprise Architect users:
