Standard Courses and Workshops

Delta has trained more than 10,000 professional developers in the use of Delta products. Training is available in a range of forms that can be tailored to best meet your specific needs.

Our standard product courses are generally held in our offices in Meerbusch near Düsseldorf, Germany. They also can be presented on-site, which is often a cost-effective solution when multiple team members need to be trained.

A workshop unites information exchange and training. It is well suited to meeting concrete needs in a specific project situation. The workshops are notable for the intensive support of the workshop leader who is able to react to project specific question and scenarios.

We offer standard training courses and workshops for the following areas:

  • ADS for COBOL and PL/I - The proven application development system for the platform-independent development of future-proof back-end applications.
  • SCORE Adaptive Bridges - Deltas tool for the intelligent service enablement and the re-use of well-established enterprise core business applications with new technologies and in new application scenarios.
  • AMELIO Logic Discovery - The innovative analysis tool that helps you to better understand your COBOL, PL/I and ADS applications and to enhance the efficiency and security for the further development, maintenance and modernisation.

Individual Training

We also offer specific customised training courses and workshops that go beyond our standard syllabus and will meet your specific technology and business goals. Custom training courses are a proven way of quickly training your staff in new products and technologies and giving them the specific knowledge and skills they need to start being effective from day one.

We are happy to work with you to analyse, design and plan your specific training requirements.

This unique combination gives you the knowledge and information you need to get the best out of your investment in Delta tools.

Delta documentation is provided online in a variety of formats. While online documentation in formats such as Windows Help and HTML are great for online reference from within the tools, we also recognize that many people like to print some or all of the documentation for reference. We therefore also provide all documentation in Adobe PDF format.

All product documentation is available in English and German. Selected manuals are available in other languages based on demand.

Documentation LibraryEach product installation is accompanied by a Documentation Library that contains over 400MB of documentation for the complete set of Delta products. You can install some or all of this documentation to your local disk or to shared server folder for faster access. Alternately, you can refer to the Documentation Library directly.

The Documentation Library is updated on a regular basis. Customers are notified of changes via the regular Support Newsletter. New and updated documentation can also be downloaded from the myDelta support site.
