Training Testimonials

Great class and instructor. When I get back to work the transition to SOLIDWORKS will be easy. Would recommend this class to anyone starting up.

Thomas Huntsinger

In every dealing I have had with CATI, everyone was very knowledgeable about SOLIDWORKS. Without the great support I have had, I really don't think my level of knowing SOLIDWORKS would be as good as it is today.

Jim Enz

[The Trainer's] knowledge of SOLIDWORKS and background in industrial design gave him credibility as an instructor. He confidently answered all questions that were raised.
