Course Details

  • Level 1 Model Building (20-24 hours)

The Level 1 Model Building training program provides you with not only the how-to's of model building, but also hands-on practice activities that will coach you through building an Anaplan model. 

In Level 1 Model Building, you will be working within your own Anaplan workspace to build a model. 

Throughout the training, whenever you see Unicorn Candy Company's unicorn icon it indicates activities that you will complete within the model you are building. It is important that you complete the model building tasks as you progress in the training. The tasks are organized in sequence. You will also need to use the model for the Level 1 Model Building exam to complete the program. Tip: It may be helpful to complete this training program with multiple monitors, so you can view the Learning Center on one screen, and access Anaplan on another. 

After completing this training, you will be able to: 

  • Identify the elements of DISCO (Data, Input, System, Calculation, and Output) in a model schema. 
  • Build a model in Anaplan that includes modules, lists, line items and hierarchies. 
  • Import data into a model. 
  • Construct formulas and functions to calculate data and reference modules. 
  • Build end User Experience that include grids, charts, and lists. 
  • Set model access levels based on roles.
