Training Testimonials

The course flowed well and the examples did contain a few "if at first you don't succeed..." type examples which made it a little more "real" than some other parametric software courses I've attended.

Deron Drach

Just one of the many classes I plan on taking to streamline our operation. This was very helpful and I look forward to putting what I have learned to use!

Isaac Lemmenes

This course and the instructor were very helpful for building my basic understanding of SOLIDWORKS. Overall I enjoyed the experience and look forward to taking more courses with this facility.
