A training programme like no other 

In the words of Professor Edmund Burke, our president 2020-2021, The OR Society’s training programme is “unique in a busy marketplace due to its specialist focus on operational research and related disciplines.”

Training with The OR Society means that you are in the right place for learning the latest analytics techniques, data skills and decision support methods. And with operational research being such a broad and diverse field, this training guide also provides you with access to our courses in soft OR, the area of problem-solving which deals not only with the problem at hand but also the people and structures involved. 

We proactively update these courses each year, so you can have confidence that you need to go nowhere else for the most relevant and up-to-date content available. 

Valued by members

Running these diverse and specialist training courses in one programme is a big part of what we do for our members and the analytics community at large. As our recent membership survey confirmed, this training programme is highly valued and we believe directly helps us achieve our vision of a world improved by rigorous analysis and better, evidence-based decision-making.

The courses within this guide are put together by experts and have been selected to give you the widest choice of options for training within the fields of operational research and analytics. Whether you’re a new starter seeking core analytical methods, a business aiming to develop its team with project-specific skills, or perhaps a seasoned professional looking to update your knowledge or even change careers, we have many courses that are perfect for you.
