One month until the HYENA⁺ Introductory Training Course - ACADS-BSG

May 29, 2023by ACADS-BSG

Following the success of our CAMEL⁺ workshops, we are pleased to announce that our next learning opportunity, the HYENA⁺ Introductory Training Course, will begin in just under a month. The course will consist of two workshops, with Workshop One being held on Wednesday the 21st of June.

The HYENA⁺ Introductory Training Course is designed to suit new HYENA⁺ users, graduate engineers, and fire protection designers. Experienced users will also benefit from the training by reinforcing their existing knowledge and learning about the latest updates in HYENA⁺.

The first workshop will include an overview of hydraulic calculations and a walkthrough of the a HYENA⁺ program.


Specific training information includes:

  • Hydraulic calculation basics
  • Understanding the basis of calculations: the Hazen-Williams and Darcy Weisbach methods
  • Understanding K-factors and Pressure Exponent
  • An overview of preparing a node diagram / considerations for numbering
  • How to use the most common input screens and how to get the most out of the new features in the HYENA⁺ platform
  • How to set up a HYENA⁺ calculation
  • Tips on how to review calculations and sense check your results

There will be opportunities for Q&A throughout the workshop. Course summary notes and a CPD Certificate for 3 hours of training will be provided after the session has been completed.

If you don’t have a current subscription to HYENA⁺, you can sign up for a free 14-day trial here before the event to make the most of this opportunity.

Attendees of Workshop One are also encouraged to register for Workshop Two, which will be held the following week. In Workshop Two we will build upon the knowledge gained in Workshop One and cover more complex systems and advanced concepts.








The user interface for HYENA+ is much cleaner and more user friendly than the UI used for the original HYENA program. This makes the experience more enjoyable, easy, and less taxing when using the program for long periods of time. HYENA is an excellent tool to have and its now web-based nature with HYENA+ has allowed it to become even more beneficial.

It has always been a pleasure dealing with ACADS-BSG team due to their helpful nature and quick response time to any inquiries and technical issues. Camel\Hyena works out of the box and install time is in seconds, I cannot recommend any other company that provides better customer service other than Catherine and her team.

The ACADS BSG suite of software has been used by VOS Group for 30 years. We as a company have grown as the software capabilities have changed with usability and technology. The support from head office has always been quick and accurate, with a resolve to overcome any obstacles. We have always found the outputs to be accurate and reliable and a good basis for good engineering design.

Moving to a cloud based platform has improved the overall performance of the software. [being able to log in from any device] has improved my overall productivity as I only need to carry my smart phone or a tablet, and I can do my job remotely. Tools and functions are clearly organised within the new interface reducing any confusion for a new user. Copy+ Paste option saves a lot of time for Engineers like me. It just works like an Excel Sheet, where you can copy items and paste them somewhere else. It saves a lot of time especially if you are working on a single project and you want to do multiple calculations.

[HYENA+] allows me to quickly switch from one calculation to another without losing any data. This has reduced the overall lead time in doing calculations. I am sure [HYENA+] will have a positive impact on the Fire Industry.
