Essentials Training
I enjoyed the course but I found it a little fast paced for one that is only begining with SOLIDWORKS. I`m happy that I knew the bare basics of SOLIDWORKS before I did this course as I believe this would be too much, too fast and alot of information for a complete beginner. I found it difficult to follow the instructor at times due to taking instruction through a virtual meeting. Alot of the information from the 2nd to 3rd day ,it seems to me that it would be more beneficial for the more advanced SOLIDWORKS user, but I did get the knowledge I required and I did enjoy the course as a whole. The online experience was well organised but it does not beat the fully present classroom environment.....although it was well done and organised under the COVID restrictions and lock down stiuation at the moment.

Essentials Training
I recently attended the essentials course which had great content and was very well delivered by our course tutor. Josh was very knowledgeable and keen to go the extra mile to cover subjects that weren’t on the syllabus but came up in conversation – I would highly recommend this training as I learnt a lot. Thanks to the SolidSolutions team
Essentials Training
Josh is a great trainer, setting the pace just right to cope with the abilities within the group. He had time to answer 'on the spot' questions with clarity, even if we didn't phrase the question in his terminology. The course content was pitched just right for the group. I can honestly say that it was the best training course I've attended in the past 32 years of work !

It would have been five stars if the sound quality between the on site class and the virtual attendees was better.
