Many organisations need periodic retraining of staff. Due to certain requirements on the composition of study groups, the planning of training sessions is an NP-hard problem. The paper presents linear and nonlinear mathematical programming formulations of this problem together with three column generation based heuristic optimisation procedures. The procedures are compared by means of computational experiments that use data originating from a large Australian electricity distributor with several thousand employees.
