Online Tekla Structures Training

Our Tekla Structures Training differs from other Tekla training because it teaches the practical application of Tekla Structures on real world examples and builds your knowledge in a logical progression Tutorial by Tutorial.

There are other online courses available that will teach you some of the basic tools, but these are not enough to learn how to use Tekla Structures for when you need to start your first project.

Trimble have some training material for Tekla Structures licenses holders, and I would recommend you check that out first. See Trimble Learning

​Steel Detailers

But if you want a more practical understanding of Tekla Structures, developed by a Structural Steel Detailer, for Structural Steel Detailers and prefer to learn at your own pace, our online video courses are broken into several tutorials where you build upon your knowledge of Tekla in each tutorial.


Tutorials 1 to 6 teaches the basic fundamentals of modelling and once completed you then apply what you have learnt to complete Tutorial 7 which is essentially a test of your modelling knowledge. 

The model produced in Tutorial 7 is then used to produce drawings such as Marking Plans, Assembly Drawings and Single Part Drawings in Tutorial 8. 

However, before drawings are created, I'll also show you how to check your model using reports and other tools.

After the drawings have been created, we will also take a look at how you manage revisions to the model and subsequent effect on the drawings in Tutorial 9.



We also offer a course for Structural Engineers to learn the basics of modelling and the creation of GA drawings. The first 5 tutorials are the same as offered in the Steel Detailing course as these exercises cover the fundamentals of modelling.

Tutorial 6, is a derivative of Tutorial 8 from the Steel Detailing course where we cover the creation of GA drawings and the drawing editing tools available.

Tutorial 7 covers the creation of Engineering drawings and all the elements that makes up these types of drawings

Whilst the course is a self-paced online course where the student is provided with drawings of models to be recreated, and videos to watch demonstrating the techniques, Tekcon Services is available for one-on-one web meetings as needed throughout training (for an additional cost) or via email to answer questions that arise.

Trimble provide free Tekla Structures educational licenses via their Tekla Campus program.

These licenses must NOT be used for commercial work.

All you need to do is to sign up for a Trimble Account and then you can activate a 12-month Tekla Structures license and download the software and start using.

Be sure to download the Australasian Environment when downloading and installing Tekla Structures.

Here is a short video which shows the tutorials we will cover in the course...
