Upcoming CATI Training Classes for January 2017


A common tradition at the start of a new year is to make a promise to do an act of self-improvement. There is no better way to improve your knowledge of SOLIDWORKS than by taking a training class. Computer Aided Technology (CATI) offers over 50 training classes in January 2017. CATI is certified by SOLIDWORKS, Stratasys, and our other partners. In addition to the complete catalog of course offerings from these partners, CATI has developed unique classes to meet the needs of our customers. In total, there are over 50 different training classes to choose from, including classes in Design, Simulation, Data Management, Design Automation, 3D Printing and more.

Classes are kept at a reasonable size so that you do not get lost in the crowd.


A lot of material is covered in a short time, but our instructors are there to make sure that no one is left behind. This personal attention is a nice feature to make sure that you get the most value from your learning experience.

Virtual Classroom Training

For clients who cannot get away from the office, the Virtual Classroom (VC) is an innovative way to deliver the full classroom training. These courses are setup as ½ day sessions that you can take using your own computer with fast internet connection and a phone.

This virtual training class is not just a pre-recorded video.


The classes are taught by a real instructor live over the internet. Using Webex technology, you actually get to use the same state-of-the-art hardware offered in our classroom by connecting directly to our computers, which eliminates the need to worry about installing any software on your machine.

SOLIDWORKS Administrator

The class is a must for anyone who is the designated CAD Administrator or the “Go to Person” for their company or department.
