Mechanical Design Experience with a basic knowledge of using a PC/Laptop running on Microsoft Windows


Attending one of our FREE SOLIDWORKS Hands-on Test Drive Days provides you with the best possible way to understand the power and ease of use of SOLIDWORKS.  Not only that, after attending we also provide you with your own evaluation version of SOLIDWORKS (terms and conditions apply) to allow you to test drive the software once you are back in the office. You can then experience for yourself and share with your colleagues the ease-of-use and powerful capabilities that SOLIDWORKS provides to improve your designs and reduce time-to-market.

During our hands-on session one of our Certified SOLIDWORKS engineers will guide you through the capabilities of the SOLIDWORKS Premium product suite. The day is split into two sessions, in the morning we concentrate on the powerful tools SOLIDWORKS provides to help you to create a 3D Model of your design. Then we break for a buffet lunch and afterwards we go over the process for creating standard engineering drawings automatically from the models created during the morning session. And of course we provide you with a full set of easy to use training courseware which you can take away with you.

So you get SOLIDWORKS training, lunch, a full set of course notes and an evaluation licence of SOLIDWORKS (terms and conditions apply) - all completely free of charge.
