SOLIDWORKS Core Training

SOLIDWORKS Core training courses will explore the fundamental and advanced modeling techniques available both within the 2D and 3D SOLIDWORKS environment. Your SOLIDWORKS training should start with these essential courses. These design training courses are constructed to prepare you for industry specific courses and/or a certification in SOLIDWORKS.

SOLIDWORKS Essentials covers the fundamentals of SOLIDWORKS and is the foundation on which you can build your modeling skills. It covers the foundational concepts and conventions on which the rest of our SOLIDWORKS classes are based. If you need to create drawings of your designs, SOLIDWORKS Drawings will show you how to make complete design documentation. Part Modeling and Assembly Modeling will complete your knowledge of solids modeling tools and techniques. If your designs require complex or organic shapes, Advanced Surfacing Modeling will introduce you to surface modeling techniques.
