Great knowledge, very helpful and clear.

Spencer was a great trainer for the essentials course, was always keen to answer questions and issues we had. felt he taught the class very well.
Essentials Training
Spencer delivered the course superbly. He was chatty, relaxed and got through the content at a good pace, as well as being very knowledgeable, would highly recommend him as a trainer.
Essentials Training
My customer experience has been great. We had researched other software and resellers but found Solidsolutions to offer the support we require to get up and running without having any prior knowledge of 3D software.
Essentials Training
I was completely new to SOLIDWORKS coming into this course and Spencer was very patient with me and always gave good advice when I was stuck on a problem. The course covered a lot of topics and I really liked that there were a lot of practical exercises to reinforce the theory. The trainer was very knowledgeable, a good speaker and a really nice guy. He made the course interactive and lively. I also really liked that there was a small class size of 4. The only downside of this course was the location of the venue in Chilton, which was a little difficult to get to via public transport. Other than that, highly recommended.
Essentials Training

Excellent Course! Very well run and organised. Particularly liked the use of the Zoomit app to show the instructors screen in more detail and highlight buttons to be used in each feature.

Absolutely brilliant course. John was there early every day and was an excellent instructor, always happy to help and an overall good guy, food was excellent and the Pure offices were an excellent centre for ease of access to and from the motorway and the hotel I was staying in during my 4 days there.

David was a great teacher, and offered lots of helpful tips and advice.

Essentials Training

Essentials Training
The trainer was trying to be helpful showing how to convert Creo files to solid works whilst trying to complete the exercises. easy to forget without reinforcing the lesion. To much back ground interference about this and that. To much content for 4 days
Feedback Response: Hello Graham Thank you for providing this feedback on your recent training. I have tried calling your office but I believe you were away from your desk. I was hoping to speak to you in a little more detail to understand how you found the course. Your particular course was exclusive to your company and having spoken with the instructor, he mentioned that you were all competent with the software. He mentioned that everyone got through the content in good time and completed most exercises so I was surprised to read that you found there to be too much content. The instructor did demonstrate converting Creo files during exercise time at the request of one of your colleagues. Typically this is time for everyone to try the exercises for themselves to reinforce the topics covered in a case study and for the instructor to help out where required but if you felt that you were unable to get the assistance you needed as the instructor was busy, then of course we need to be mindful of how we spend the exercise time. I have followed up separately with an email so if there is anything you wish to discuss further, do please get in touch. Kind Regards – Julie Weir | Training Manager
Essentials Training
Was far too fast paced, couldn't keep up at all.
Feedback Response: Hello AndrewMany thanks for providing this feedback and for your time on the phone to better understand your training experience. I understand that the pace of the course was not always suitable for you. With differing abilities in a class, it can be a challenge to get the pace correct. We believe in most occasions we do achieve this but there are always steps we can implement to adjust our delivery of the courses and further improve the courses we provide. I hope the information that I provided will be helpful to you. Kind Regards - Julie Weir | Training Manager

The course was split between Paul and Russell - both great teachers with different but equally effective styles. I'm looking forward to the next one to try take my knowledge even further.

Alex was knowledgeable and competent and presented the course material to a very high standard. Group discussions were encouraged and individual questions handled well. The course was enjoyable and informative. Highly recommended.
Essentials Training
A brilliant course, covering all of the basics of SOLIDWORKS. A fast paced course, but if any questions were asked, our instructor made sure we all understood before moving on. There was a mixture of experience in using SOLIDWORKS, some with over 30yrs experience with SOLIDWORKS and others with very little, however it seemed like everyone took something from the course.
Essentials Training
Great delivery of an amazing product by a very knowledgable Tom the trainer. Learned lots and found many shortcuts I did not know about - highly recommended the Essentials course to everyone - new and old users will gain from this course.
Essentials Training
Very good 4 day course. Very insightful. The trainer was very knowledgeable and understanding to everyone in the room. Helpful when people needed it and understood people was at different learning stages within Solid Works.
Essentials Training
The trainer certainly knows SOLIDWORKS inside out.
Essentials Training
Great course and content, Cameron was very good, Very professional and switched on, he assisted the Trainee's wherever he could.


I think the course itself could be a bit more interactive and lively.
A course for people on a level of SOLIDWORKS used in conjunction with Solidcam would be beneficial. As a lot of things on this course won't be used on a daily basis for myself, I fear I may forget them in time.
Essentials Training
Took the time beyond the course hours to assist in issues not covered by the course
Essentials Training
The entire experience, from entering the building to leaving at the end of the course was superb.
As a new SOLIDWORKS user with other platform experience I found the tutorials easy to follow and the Tutor, Caitlin, to be very good at explaining any queries from the group.
The Breakout area was well thought-out, the lunch of a good standard and the constant availability of refreshments very welcome.
Essentials Training
The tutorials were well laid out - each lesson was distinctly explained and assistance provided where needed. Grasping new concepts was easy having pro-active tutor enaging with everyone.

Essentials Training
Really well taught course, went along at appropriate pace. Very helpful in all aspects and helped further my understanding of the software. Made the SOLIDWORKS seem really easy to use and showcased the best features that I hadn't used or seen before. The course also expanded my knowledge features that I was familiar with and showed me so many time saving solutions to problems I'd previously encountered with the software. Tom was very professional and an all round nice guy, easy to talk to and extremely helpful. Went above and beyond, answered all queries I had and I left feeling confident in my SOLIDWORKS ability thanks to him. Would recommend.
Essentials Training
I think the course should be more bespoke, have real relevance to our jobs, also spend more time on relevant issues. Have more regular breaks during lessons.
Feedback Response: Hello Many thanks for leaving this feedback. The SOLIDWORKS Essentials course is designed to give attendees an overview of Part, Assembly and Drawing creation and when the classroom contains individuals from different industries, it isn’t possible to tailor the content to everyone. The standard course will however show you the tools which can help you achieve your design goals. Bespoke training is available upon request but due to the time required to build bespoke examples, this is offered at a different price point. However, when on standard courses we do try to give real world examples and encourage attendees to bring along their own models so we can provide advice on best modelling practises. I hope the above information is helpful and if you are interested in any bespoke training, do please let us know and we would be happy to help. If you need any further guidance any one of our support team would be happy to help you. Kind Regards Julie Weir | Training Manager

Chris was very clear with his explanations and instructions throughout the course. He was always willing to offer assistance when required and went at a suitable pace for all attendees. Would definitely recommend taking any SOLIDWORKS courses with Chris Green as a tutor.
