Creo Detailed Drawing & Creo Advanced Assembly: Level 2

Course Duration: 40 Hours

Tuition: $2,300 US

Overview: Participants in this Creo week long class will learn in great detail both Detail drawings with modern drawing standards & Creo Advanced assembly functions. Participants have the option to customize this course to fit their specific job requirements so you are able to learn exactly what you need. For example in a Design-engine effort to cover advanced assemblies we may also present a serious introduction to Mechanism. Often we conduct an eight hr effort on Creo Sheet metal. Participants choose. Call today and ask us how this and other classes can be administered on weekends for more than two students.

Onsite Training: This and all Design-engine courses are offered onsite at your facility also. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class 312.226.8339 today.

Projects: The instructor has a multitude of parts and drawings for class room participation.

Next Class: Learning Creo Surfacing WEEK long or Creo Top Down Design Training or Advanced Assembly week long intensive is recommended as a next class.

Prerequisite: learning Creo Training level 1 is recommended but not necessary.

This Creo course is a comprehensive detailing & managing engineering changes utilizing the latest release of Creo (was Pro/ENGINEER). This Creo training course is developed for newer and seasoned users alike who want to become proficient at creating documenting and managing drawings and assemblies all in one week. We help you learn Creo detailing and assemblies not by reading to participants from an exercise but by solving problems with this powerful tool set. We often depending upon participation cover 6 hours sheet metal or 6 hours mechanism within this class. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming experts faster. As with all Design-engine classes participants keep the training material login and password for life.

Video Training Delivery System:

Ask your Design Engine account manager about the Design-engine Video Training Delivery System or TDS for short. We have prepared this entire class in an easy to follow guide for designers and engineers who may want this TDS as a supplement to this course. Call today to speak to an Account manager about the details 312.226.8339

*Please note that prices listed on this page are based upon pre-payment prior to the start of the class and does not include the Design-engine Video training Delivery System. The TDS is available as an additional cost to this course.
