SOLIDWORKS Resellers Helping Veterans Advance Their Careers

Buffalo Grove, IL – November 11, 2016 – Computer Aided Technology (CATI) and MCAD Technologies (MCAD) are helping veterans return to the civilian workforce and advance their careers by offering free SOLIDWORKS CAD Software Training Classes.

“We want to do our small part to help those who have given so much for all of us. Our veterans return home from service with valuable skills that employers are looking for – skills like leadership, dependability, integrity, and teamwork. Even with these skills, some of them struggle to re-enter the civilian workforce. We want to help our veterans expand on those skills and ease the transition back into the workforce.”  – Rich Werneth, President, Computer Aided Technology (CATI)

CATI and MCAD are inviting U.S. military service Veterans to take the SOLIDWORKS Essentials Training Class at no cost. The SOLIDWORKS Essentials class provides the foundation for building SOLIDWORKS skills. After completing this class, students are ready to make parts, assemblies and drawings, and will be on the path to SOLIDWORKS proficiency. The schedule is now open for registration through 2017 and classes are offered regularly at a CATI or MCAD Training Facility (facilities are located in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, New Mexico, Washington, and Oregon). For more information and to register for classes, visit the CATI or MCAD website. Or, contact CATI’s and CATI’s training coordinator at 888-308-2284.
