Training Testimonials

The course was just what I needed to help my conversion from Solid Edge.

Randy Schultz

The class was everything I needed to fill in many of the blank areas of my education with SOLIDWORKS. I enjoyed the class and it will definitely increase my knowledge with the software.

Jim Cox

I was nervous coming into the class that I would not be advanced enough to learn but at the end of the week I am completely satisfied with how much I learned.
