The Drill Design Clinic is a hands-on experience focusing on class instruction and individual assistance in writing your own drill. The clinic is designed for beginners and experienced users of Pyware. For those with little or no experience, learn the fundamentals of using the Pyware software and basics of drill design techniques. For those who already know the basic of Pyware, the clinic expands upon the ins and outs of the software, and gain advice writing one’s own drill with the aid of a clinician. While computers will be provided in a lab, participants are encouraged to bring their own “Pyware 3D” loaded notebook computers for use during the clinic.
