Not only in building construction industry, but also in engineering and architectural education the use of simulation tools has a great interest. Rapid advances in the capabilities of simulation tools and computer technologies have provided additional potential and choices for the designers and trainers. There are several kinds of simulation tools for energy efficiency and daylighting. During training practitioners, use some of them. This paper aims to discuss if there is any way to define and compare which one is appropriate for different stages of design process. Some of them are very complicated; on the other hand, some of them are much unsophisticated and not verified. The authors provide experiences of two workshops to show how the simulation tools successfully used to train the students. In addition, guidelines provided to maximize the usefulness of simulation for training student skills in sustainable design.
