Visual Modeling with UML Training Course

Duration: 1 day
Course code: SS-MDL-012


Any stakeholder in an organization who wants to understand visual modeling and UML


Exposure to object-oriented technology is recommended (but not necessary).


Visual Modeling with UML Training course provides an overview of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Participants will explore the UML notation and learn how it supports constructing, visualizing, and documenting the artifacts of software-intensive systems. The course explores the key elements of object-oriented systems, models and diagrams and provides guidance on their best use. Numerous exercises ensure the adoption of the learned material.


A goal of this course is to provide participants with:

  • Understanding of key principles of visual modeling
  • Understanding of notation used for visual modeling
  • Ability to interpret different UML models and diagrams
