  • Course UML Overview : Content

    The course UML Overview gives insight into the UML language for modeling systems. It discusses the UML syntax, symbols, diagrams and views.

    UML Intro

    After an introduction to the UML specification and the meaning of UML as a meta language, the courses addresses Structural Modeling and the diagrams used like class and object diagrams, component and deployment diagrams.

    Class Diagrams

    Also domain modeling and the modeling of possible relationships between classes are discussed like inheritance, associations, aggregations, compositions and dependencies.

    Use Case Diagrams

    Next attention is paid to Use Case Modeling, the Use Case Diagram, the role of actors and the accurate description of the interaction steps.

    Sequence Diagrams

    The next subject is Dynamic Behavior Modeling where interaction diagrams like sequence diagrams and collaboration diagrams are discussed.

    State Diagrams

    The modeling of system states using state chart diagrams, the difference between passive and active objects and the role of threads is also part of the subject matter. There is also attention for the role of activity diagrams in which concepts such as control and data flow and swim lanes are discussed.

    Subsystems en Stereotypes

    Finally a number of advanced concepts such as the UML modeling of packages and subsystems and the use of stereotypes, constraints and tagged values are part of the program.

    Audience Course UML Overview

    The course UML Overview is intended for developers, designers, architects, managers and other interested persons who want to get an overview of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) standard for modeling systems.

    Prerequisites Course UML Overview

    Knowledge of and experience with system development and object orientation is beneficial to a good understanding but not strictly required.

    Realization Training UML Overview

    The theory is treated on the basis of presentation slides and is interspersed with exercises. UML models are used as demonstration of the concepts. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.

    Certification UML

    Participants receive an official certificate UML Overview after successful completion of the course.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
