SimulTrain® is a game-based online project management simulator which allows learners to acquire core competencies while improving teamwork and leadership skills in a realistic & fast-paced environment

So far, the simulator is used in more than 51 countries and has contributed to the training of more than 200'000 project managers.

  • How does it work

The project simulation SimulTrain® is primarily used in combination with classroom activities.

In teams of 3 to 4 people, learners play the role of the project manager. The teams have to plan and execute a typical mid-sized project. They immediately see the consequences of the decisions they make. Furthermore, they can track the evolution of the costs, the schedule, the quality as well as the human factors.

With the help of SimulTrain®, project manager can make all the mistakes while planning and executing a project and learn from these mistakes – just to a reasonable price!

Full of multimedia interaction, SimulTrain® provides the teams with phone calls, emails, and voicemails to create a realistic and stressful environment – just as in real life. Therefore, learners experience stress and working under pressure.

SimulTrain® is also an ideal tool for team building or decision making.


SimulTrain® is available in more than 22 languages.

Depending on the languages, there are up to 10 scenarios at disposal, reflecting simulations of projects in different areas.


SimulTrain® can be run online.


The simulation lasts from 4 to 10 hours including the phases of planning, execution, and debriefing.

In most cases, the simulation is split into two parts over two days and combined with other learning activities such as company-specific case studies. During two sessions of 4 hours, the learners are confronted with the planning and the execution of a project.

What People are Saying

SimulTrain® is the best online Project Management simulator I’ve come across. Even though it is very complete, it’s getting new features and updates regularly, and that’s an assurance that the product is never outdated. Another very important aspect is the fantastic support that I always got from STS people. Using it in trainings and competitions, the feedback I always get from participants is that they learn more with a 1 day or 2 days simulation with SimulTrain® than on a week of traditional training.
Another very important characteristic is the variety of scenarios I can chose from, giving me the possibility to run a simulation somehow related to my clients’ context. I can even create my own. With all the parameters I can twitch and the array of languages I can chose from, it’s easily adapted to any context.
This new version has a very nice, modern and improved interface that makes the all experience even more agreeable.

SimulTrain® makes the difference : it turns a class into a vivid experience. It transforms knowledge into skills. It is the best tool to learn in deep project management skills. We at TenStep have used for hundreds of project managers all around the French speaking world as a stand alone tool for PM Simulation Workshops as well as embedded into two, three, four or five days classes.

In spring 2007, I was looking for modern training tools for the education of project managers in product development and engineering projects, which enable a practical and realistic training. That way I came across STS and SimulTrain®.
Since then, we have trained more than 800 project managers at Innovation Wings, from novices to experienced project managers, and receive excellent feedback from the participants every time. In working with STS I appreciate the speedy, competent service and the continuous development of SimulTrain®, so that we can always be at the forefront of top companies.
