You have the tools. Learn how to use them.

Here at CATI, we understand that our customers turn to us because the solutions we provide are powerful. But without the right know-how, the full potential of these tools cannot be attained. In response to this challenge, we have developed a curriculum of training courses to meet the needs of our customers. We offer introductory and advanced classes in Design, Simulation, Data Management, Design Automation, 3D Printing and more.

Our course list is extensive, and we offer a number of pricing options. If you are unsure which solution is best for your organization, contact us to speak to a training adviser or to request a training quote. We’ve also prepared a downloadable training guide for your reference.

Expert instructors with industry-leading certifications.

CATI instructors are certified by SOLIDWORKS, Stratasys and our other partners to provide their complete catalog of course offerings. Our training is more than theoretical. You’ll get hands-on training and learn more efficient workflows. You’ll have the opportunity to have your specific issues and design challenges addressed and have any questions answered by an expert in the field.

Personalized learning experience.

We want to make sure that you get the most out of your SOLIDWORKS solutions. That’s why we’ve adopted a personalized approach to learning. We limit class sizes to ten students so that every single participant receives the attention that they need and can leave with the skills necessary to excel with SOLIDWORKS. Our instructors encourage you to bring your own files that are giving you problems and they’ll work with you to find solutions.

State-of-the-art learning environments for both classroom and online instruction.

Our classroom training locations are all fully-equipped with all the hardware, software, and training files needed to provide you with a high-quality training experience. Students who attend our classroom training get more than a premium learning experience, however. They also have a chance to network with their fellow students and collaborate on solving difficult problems.

We understand how challenging it can be to find time for training, and that not everyone’s schedule can easily accommodate the additional travel required for in-person training. Our online courses are led by a live instructor, with content delivery through the award-winning WebEx Online Classroom from Cisco Systems.

Flexible pricing options.

Classes can be purchased individually, through our full-access annual pass (CATalyst), or through bulk credit purchases. We recommend individual course purchase for those who need the greatest flexibility to meet specific needs. Our CATalyst program is the best option for an individual who needs a broad exposure and complete support. Organizations that want an adaptable professional development solution for their employees can purchase course credits and apply them to personnel as training needs arise.

The CATI Essentials for 3D CAD Success

There are many examples of high-skill, self-taught SOLIDWORKS users. But how long did it take for them to get there? And what did they miss along the way? What does that mean for not only their own productivity of anyone downstream of them or even trained by them?
