[The Instructor's] flexibility and patience with the pace of the different students without sacrificing class content and overall pace was very impressive.

Miguel Navarro

This was an exceptional class. I had CAD experience when I started, but now I understand a great deal about SOLIDWORKS. Thank you, ... for all your help and support in the class.

The instructor was very informative and I know that I will be able to use the skills I learned from this class in my designs.
