Creo Update Training

Description - creo update training

Creo update training is much more than a serious refresher for utilizing Creo. Of course, it’s about what’s new functionality-wise in all the Creo updates however this Creo Update training also covers what was new in previous releases that your team is likely not leveraging. This course was developed for those who are already experts as they are also familiar with previous releases of Creo and looking to leverage this powerful toolset, the end result is to work smarter, not harder. Participants will grasp new parametric modeling techniques and a new workflow while experimenting with multi-bodies and other enhancements in Creo such as Sketch Utilities, Surfacing, Assemblies & Sheet Metal. 

The difference between 2-day & 5-day course curricula simply is content.  “Your more senior level engineers can benefit the most from the full week of Creo Update Training by adding as much as 30 percent efficiency” often explains our lead instructor.  “Many simply use the software like it’s 1997 and there is so much more to this tool”, he goes on to add.  Many efficiency changes have occurred over the past 10 or even 25 years. In reality, the 2-day plan is intensive and provides less time for participants to practice the examples during training. On the other hand, the 5-day structure offers a more comprehensive approach, covering tips, techniques, and new features from previous releases as far back as Wildfire 2.0 that your team is likely not utilizing for optimal success.

Our effort as a training organization is to help product designers & design engineers learn how to take strategic advantage of this amazing tool. Participants will learn to make changes quickly to become even more proficient and move faster through the interface.  Consider our Creo Update Training to help your team work smarter, not harder.

Version

Please let us know the version of Creo you are upgrading to and describe the types of products you develop in the “Register Now” tab above. Based on this information, we will create a customized training plan for your team, which can either be a 2-day or a 5-day program.

The 2-day plan is intensive and provides less time for participants to practice the examples during training. On the other hand, the 5-day plan offers a more comprehensive approach, covering tips, techniques, and new features from previous releases as far back as Wildfire 2.0 that your team may not yet be utilizing for optimal success.
