Classroom Training

Computer Aided Technology provides a comprehensive training offering with a rich set of classes and flexible delivery from our certified training centers.

There’s nothing like stepping away from the day-to-day pressures of a work environment to dedicate time specifically to training. Students who are able to attend our classroom training often benefit from the time they are able to spend focusing on the course material, as well as the additional advantages provided by in-person instruction. All our classroom courses include:

  • Fully equipped classrooms. Each of our facilities includes all the hardware, software, and training files you need to make the most from your learning experience. Don’t stress about bringing anything but yourself.
  • Small class sizes for personalized training. We have learned over time that smaller class sizes work best. Keeping classes to about 10 students allows us to cover the core curriculum as well as explore your specific questions and design challenges.
  • Bring your own files for job-based experience. Our classrooms are the perfect environment for earning hands-on experience. While we provide all the necessary training resources, we also encourage students to bring their own files to learn how to address issues that are specific to their working environment.
  • Collaboration and networking opportunities. In-person training isn’t just about the instruction—it’s also about the colleagues you meet along the way. Students in our classrooms often find that the opportunity to network and collaborate made the trip more than worthwhile.
  • Locations across the country. We have training facilities in thirty-one states and Washington D.C. If you don’t see the course that you’re interested in listed near you, we will work with you to find a solution.

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?
