Creo to SolidWorks or SolidWorks to Creo

Creo to SolidWorks or SolidWorks to Creo: A Week Long Intensive

Course Duration: 5 Day Class

Tuition: $2,500 USD

Overview:
This class is for those design or engineering teams that have been forced to switch parametric software packages.  We also understand you are probably upset, however we would like to make the transition as smooth and rewarding as possible in this one week intensive.  Whether you are coming from Creo or from SolidWorks, this course makes the assumption you are experienced at one or the other and is you need to get you up to speed quickly in the new package. Design Engine instructors help you learn the new software package at a rapid pace and at a much higher level all in one week. Ask your account manager for assistance with a customization process. Our instructors know both packages and can ease your learning experience plus we will get through much more material in one week.

Prereq: Participants should have better than a working knowledge of Creo or SolidWorks depending upon what software their team has switched from.

Brief:

Did your company choose to switch design engineering packages?  This course is for those who know one package already and have been tasked to learn the other.  Introduction to constraint based modeling, assembly, detailing & making changes utilizing the latest release of the package you are switching to. This training course is developed for seasoned users who want to become proficient learning the new package all in one week. We help you learn the software, not read to you from an exercise. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming expert 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 at 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. Call for details 312.226.8339
