Essentials Training
This is for the course as much as the trainer: very good - loads of stuff covered - but just a bit much to take it all in within four days. Completely knackered at the end!
Essentials Training
Very knowledgeable and engaging. Very happy to help, very patient, and excellent at explaining. Given time constraints and IT issues, it may have helped if we had stayed on task more and had fewer diversions.
Essentials Training
Excellent delivery by Stephen.
Essentials Training
he was very calm and steady which is really good for those of us who find this subject difficult. He made it look easy. Sometimes a little difficult to get his attention for a question as he didn't always keep an eye on the online chat box.
Essentials Training
Course and trainer Jordon were excellent. Jordon went through the essentials booklet at a steady pace and made time to give one or two tips not included in the book. I am keen to go to more classes and complete the associate exam in the future.

Instruction was excellent. Course content is fair, some steep learning curve after 3 to 4 sections but explained well and help through exercises was very good.

Jonathon is very knowledgeable and put people at their ease with his friendly teaching style. If asked a question from 'left field', if he didn't know the answer he quickly came back with the answer he had gained from other colleagues.

Presented well and very helpful if issues occurred, which was rare due to the level of guidance given.
Essentials Training
Lauren's instructions were very clear. She was quick to react when someone got stuck and I appreciated the anonymous guidance. I was a bit nervous about attending the course as this was my first time using SOLIDWORKS software however the the content of the course and the instructions were very clear.
Essentials Training
Delivery was excellent, motivated, enthusiastic and eager to help where applicable.
Very patient and able to communicate to people at both ends of the competency scale.
Time was always made at the end to run through more complicated questions and queries.

Course was perfect for someone who has little to no use of SOLIDWORKS.
Useful for competent CAD users moving from another CAD package to learn the ins and outs of SOLIDWORKS.
Essentials Training
Rory Niles is a very talented individual, very humours and with an enormous amount of patients.As a total novice he made me feel welcome and was always available when I was in need of assistance, no issue was to small. It was a great pleasure to have sat the course with this instructor.
Essentials Training
Excellent knowledge of software. Engaging. Easy to follow instructions and through worked examples
Essentials Training
My course trainer was excellent, I feel that the pace was a little too fast, a lot to take in, in a short space of time
Essentials Training
Our trainer was Rory. He explained everything very clearly and precisely and made everything very easy to understand for a novice in SOLIDWORKS software.
Essentials Training
All good service, a little to much selling for my liking.
Essentials Training
I recently took the 4 day Solid Works Essentials course. The course content is very good and covers pretty much all you will need as a first time user. If you have used any other type of 3D package before but not Solid Works, 'Essentials' is absolutely ideal for giving you the knowledge that you require to run the software with some degree of confidence.

My course was originally going to be in a classroom environment but due to the Covid restrictions this was changed to an online course a couple of weeks prior to the starting date.

Solid Solutions were extremely helpful in getting this set up with our IT department (firewall exceptions are needed) and it ran like clockwork during the classes. The online course was extremely well conducted by the instructor and the online environment should not put anyone off as it works a treat.
Essentials Training
Alex was very knowledgeable and was flexible with anything that wasn't covered in the course content.
Essentials Training
Knew what to do and easy to speak to and get in contact with
Essentials Training
Explained everything in a clear and coherent manner, was very willing to take any questions and go back over certain aspects if required.
Essentials Training
Excellent detail on course and encouragement of questions throughout the duration of the course.
Essentials Training
Josh, our trainer was very friendly and helpful, any question we asked he took the time to go through the topic in detail until everyone was satisfied. He also worked around our schedule and was open to changing dates when we required it.
Essentials Training
Great course well delivered.
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
Chris Green was an excellent teacher, great comunication skills and very thorough with course details and instructions while keeping everything enjoyable and interesting. Overall excelent experiance.

Rory was a great instructor, very helpful and lots off patience. I will be able to use the software wit more confidence.
Essentials Training
Very knowledgeable tutor with a high enthusiasm towards the software! Had a little issue with the mouse cursor but nothing major, maybe a connection problem. Overall the experience I had was fantastic and I feel much more confident using SOLIDWORKS. I also liked how you can download the files and also have access to an online recap, this was very helpful.

Essentials Training
The Essentials course was an excellent introduction on how to use SOLIDWORKS an covered many key features to allow me to start to use the software with confidence.
Stephen delivered the course with enthusiasm and a high level of expertise. Considering the constraints with the remote delivery of the course, Stephen done a fantastic job and ensured that everybody was supported during the whole course.
