Essentials Training
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.

Been using SOLIDWORKS for a few years now but attended this course anyway. Definitely learned some new tips and tricks that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. The trainer was very friendly I would definitely recommend this course.

Essentials Training
Professional training well delivered with relevant application examples as take aways.
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.

Felt She Should Have Been More Upto Date With The Course She Was Teaching
Feedback Response: Hello Andy Many thanks for providing this feedback. Having discussed this review with yourself and your manager, I have a better understanding of your training experience and the areas where we can improve. Having also spoken with the instructor, I believe nerves played a big part on this course which meant that the delivery wasn’t as fluid as normal so will we work on this by practising our presenter and course management techniques more thoroughly. Kind Regards - Julie Weir | Training Manager
Essentials Training
I recommend it. A good introduction of the SW. Organized and cover the main functions of the SW.
Essentials Training
Charlotte was very knowledgeable on the software, & relayed the information well
Essentials Training
Although we covered the whole book on the SOLIDWORKS essentials course, I feel the trainer was new to taking the class and lacked knowledge at times. It got confusing when the trainer didn't seem to know what was going on! We spent a lot on certain areas that I feel would never be used at work.
Feedback Response: Hello. Many thanks for leaving this feedback and for your time since to better understand your training experience. We will take on board your comments regarding the room and trainer preparation. We do a lot of work on “How to Train” already but these practises can always be improved and implemented on courses better. The Essentials course covers a wide range of topics so I can appreciate that not all topics are relevant to each individual but the course must cater for the wider group. I trust the topics that were relevant to your area of work will be of benefit to you. Kind Regards - Julie | Training Manager
Essentials Training

Essentials Training
Despite being reasonably experienced using SOLIDWORKS the course was interesting and had plenty of good exercises to work through. Saeed knew his stuff and was helpful throughout. My group were especially surprised to find out we were his first ever group as he led the class with confidence.
Learned a few tips and tricks that I'll likely use on a daily basis and the support material will help as a good reference.
Overall an enjoyable 4 days, I look forward to going on the next one.

Feedback Response: Hello. I have been unable to catch you on the phone but since my follow up email to this feedback, I can see that you have marked this feedback as resolved. Thank you for this but I am still keen to understand how you found the course and to understand if there was anything you thought could be improved or if when you said “no” you simply meant you did not wish to leave feedback? If you would like to get in touch, please reply to my email or you can contact me on 01926 333777. Kind Regards - Julie Weir| Training Manager
Essentials Training
Great communication & very approachable
Essentials Training
The course was brilliant, ran through a lot of information in a short time period however it ran through at a perfect pace to keep everyone able to complete. Spencer was brilliant. I will definitely recommend to others
Essentials Training
Content is good, drawing section is very fast paced for new starts to SOLIDWORKS
Feedback Response: Hello Alice. I have tried calling a few times and have sent you an email as I wanted to follow up on this feedback. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get through to you but I just wanted to say thank you for providing this feedback and acknowledge your comment regarding the Drawings content. The Essentials course is designed to give an introduction to part, assembly and drawing creation therefore there is limited time for each topic. The drawings functionality within SOLIDWORKS is extensive and so this has its own 3-day course. If you are interested in learning more about drawings, it might be worth taking a look at the course description for drawings on the website or please let me know and I can provide you with further information. Kind RegardsJulie Weir | Training Manager
Essentials Training
Josh was extremely patient with us and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the software. Not only did he teach everything that the book required but he went above and beyond to help with any problems we had during the course or with any models we already had.
Essentials Training
Albie was a fantastic teacher, with the ability to answer any question he was given. Overall, the course itself was extremely beneficial and was definitely worth taking part in. Looking forward to the next one!
