The practical introduction into CalcHEP package and High Energy Physics Model database will be given together with the follow-up tutorial. CalcHEP is a powerful tool for theoretical, phenomenological and experimental studies in High Energy Physics (HEP). CalcHEP allows users to automate the calculations and studies starting from the introduction of any user-defined model and ending by the realistic event simulation, kinematical distributions and analysis. In its present status CalcHEP can be considered is a ready setup for study of LHC physics within Standard Model and Beyond. On the other hand HEPMDB is a convenient centralized storage environment for HEP models, and can accommodate, via web interface to the HPC cluster, the validation of models, evaluation of LHC predictions and event generation-simulation chain. The ultimate goal of HEPMDB is perform an effective LHC data interpretation isolating the most successful theory for explaining the LHC observations.
