SOLIDWORKS Essentials is the foundation class for building SOLIDWORKS skills. This course is designed for those who have experience with 3D Solids Modeling, but are new to SOLIDWORKS.

It focuses on leveraging your experience into the skills required to be productive with SOLIDWORKS. After completing this class the student will be ready to make parts, assemblies and drawings, and will be on the path to SOLIDWORKS proficiency.

SOLIDWORKS Essentials for 3D CAD Professionals is only available via the CATI Virtual Classroom. This allows the material to be covered in 6 half day sessions you can attend from anywhere, instead of 1 Week at one of our training centers.

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

The course and instructor more than met my expectations.

Rich Chamernik

[The Instructor] is a great guy and great instructor! I had a great time and most of all learned all of the essentials of SOLIDWORKS.
