SimulTrain® 12 - License Agreement & Data Privacy

SimulTrain® is a Project Management simulator for training purposes. A team of 3 or 4 participants will take the role of the Project Manager in a midsize project in accelerated mode. Each team needs a license to run the simulation and therefore no individual accounts or login information are required, only a license number provided by STS. All progress, scores and reports will be bound to that license.

System Requirements

The latest versions of SimulTrain 12 is compatible with the last 2 builds of Windows 10 and 11 64-bit and the two last builds of either Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Other operating systems and browsers may work, but you might not be able to use all of the features, graphical imperfections might occur, and our support and ability to help will be limited. Make sure JavaScript is turned on for your browser.

An active internet connection is required and we recommend an available bandwidth of at least 5 Mbps. We do not recommend connecting via Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Proxies or thin-clients of any kind as our support and ability to help will be limited.

Compatibility with touch screen interfaces, screen-readers and any device other than a mouse and keyboard is provided as is. Currently SimulTrain 12 is not fully compatible with WCAG 2.1 due to the highly interactive nature of the product. A minimum screen resolution of 1024x768 is required.

Sub-processors and Data Centers

SimulTrain 12 is hosted by Infomaniak in Data Centers located in Switzerland. They are certified ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.
