Training Testimonials

I was unsure how much I would benefit from this training since I have been using SOLIDWORKS for the past 6 months and feel proficient in assembly modeling. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of things I learned in the class and would recommend it to others as long as you are willing to learn new ways to do the same tasks.

Joel Chaplin

I was overqualified for this course, but I still enjoyed it and learned a few things. I would definitely recommend this course.

Christopher Daly

[The Instructor] showed real concern and took a true interest in students' progress. He was extremely helpful and very patient. Always answered each question with a great deal of knowledge and made sure the student understood the concept. In my personal case, he was extraordinarily helpful and I greatly appreciate it. I look forward to taking additional classes in the future.
