Training Testimonials

Great class! A must have for any Industrial Designer. Should have taken it earlier...that is my only regret.

Mark Krasne

Fantastic instructor.

Jason Hawk

Exceptional class. I had little to no CAD experience when I started, and I now understand a great deal about SOLIDWORKS.
