Accelerate StressCheck Productivity with the Latest e-Learning Resources
In February 2020, ESRD presented a webinar titled “Mastering StressCheck®: Practical Training Approaches & Online Resources for A&D Engineers” in order to provide a roadmap for success in StressCheck® Professional.
With the release of StressCheck® v11 in December 2020, ESRD unveiled a significantly improved user interface experience, a voluminous online documentation portal, and a re-written Getting Started Guide with a companion video tutorial. In addition, we’ve revamped our Getting Started page, with helpful links for member registration, licensing & installation, the basics of StressCheck® usage, and other key links & resources. In short, it’s never been easier to learn StressCheck®!
Below are a few tips and links to help you become more acquainted with StressCheck® Professional and its latest features. Note: Customer-level membership may be required to access certain e-Learning resources. Not yet a customer? Contact us to get started with a trial evaluation or request pricing information.
