Essentials Training
Owen obviously knows his stuff. With a lot of material to cover he was still able to track everyone's progress and help where needed to get us over the humps. Great instructor.
Essentials Training
Very thorough and supportive throughout. Flexible on pace of course without compromising quality of delivery. Looking forward to attending other courses.
Essentials Training
Exceptionally helpful, having managed a pretty diverse group and somehow kept everyone both engaged, up to speed and not climbing the walls after days of solid CAD work in the same room. Good show.
Essentials Training
Excellent

Owen was clearly competent and understood the course well, and was an enthusiastic teacher.
Essentials Training
Extremely well presented at a perfect pace in a great environment. Oliver was articulate and thorough.
Essentials Training
The content of the course is spectacular, very comprehensive and useful. However, four days to tackle the syllabus is not enough time to digest such amount of concepts. The last two days of the course the trainer rushed to complete the programme which make I did not enjoy that part of the course.

Thank you,
Juan
Feedback Response: Hi, and thanks for this feedback.
I will spend some time with the instructor who taught your class and talk about employing different time management techniques to better distribute the course content throughout the day and to use breaks appropriately to give attendees time to digest the information presented. However, I think your feedback is as much in relation to the course content itself, specifically that the number of concepts covered was too intensive. 
Balancing the content is actually something we spend a great deal of time thinking about on this particular course. We find the feedback can be wildly varied going from 'too much content' to 'too basic, not enough content'. We hope we have found a balanced middle ground but we will continue to work on this content, always trying to improve it. It’s a regular item at our training team meetings so your feedback here is genuinely appreciated and will be considered as we move forwards.
I'll write to you directly in the next few moments but may I also suggest that should you wish to recap any of the topics presented on the course your likely to find a lot of relevant and useful content within the My.SSM section of our website. If you struggle to find relevant content please don't hesitate to get in touch with us so we can help you out.
Kind Regards,
Peter Harkness | Training Manager

Very informative course easy to follow and understand. Finished knowing a far amount from the beging not knowing anythink.
Essentials Training
Michael was patient and helpful.
Essentials Training
Very clear and concise with instructions and explanations. Helpful with specific company related topics.
Essentials Training
Course trainer was excellent, content could deal more with drawings, a bit of sheet metal could also be covered, I know that this is taught in a different module but would be nice to see some of the sheet metal design examples.
Essentials Training
An outstanding trainer with a natural ability to adapt to the range of learners at the session. An impressive knowledge of the software with the ability to answer questions with speed and authority. An excellent 4 day essentials course, highly recommended for anyone wishing to grasp the fundamentals of SOLIDWORKS. Just need to practice now!
Essentials Training
The course ran at the speed of the most able students and left others behind.
There was no time to take notes as we went along because if you did you didn't keep up with the fast pace of the Lesson.
As this was supposed to be the "Essentials" course I felt it was aimed more at the Intermediate level as I struggled to keep up.
Essentials Training
The trainer was very good and he was incredibly helpful as well as friendly which meant asking questions to get a better understanding was really easy
Essentials Training
The course trainer was excellent, very knowledgeable, helpful and approachable.
Essentials Training
TUTOR WAS VERY HELPFUL WITH A FANTASTIC KNOWLEDGE OF PRODUCT. VERY PATIENT WITH US THAT STRUGGLED AT FIRST
Essentials Training
Whereas the course trainer was excellent, the pace of the course was a little slow. Improved differentiation would help in the course design so that it doesn't have to follow the speed of the slowest
Essentials Training
Very patient and a good communicator with good interpersonal skills
Essentials Training
Rory is a great teacher - great pedagogy skills.
Essentials Training
The training session was very informative and the tutor was very knowledgeable of the SOLIDWORKS software. It was paced very well and the materials provided were very useful.
Essentials Training
Great training. Training was delivered at a pace we could all cope with. Plenty of individual support.
Essentials Training
Excellent training delivered by Tom McHale. The pace suited the range of attendees perfectly over the 4 days and Tom made swift progress through the material but we never felt rushed. He always went the extra mile to explain any questions or go over things again if needed to reinforce the learning. Thank you
Essentials Training
Good at explaining the material and he was happy to answer a bunch of questions about stuff that was not on the course.

He was also happy to change the course order to accommodate me having to leave early.
Essentials Training
A really helpful experience! I was a SOLIDWORKS novice at the start of the course having only opened the programme a handful of times prior. The course tutor (Adam) was brilliant! clearly and patiently explaining the exercises through the essentials training guide. I have come away with a good understanding and good practice to steer my learning and progression in design the right way. Many Thanks
Essentials Training
A well paced course with great support material. Good balance of training and classroom exercises. Small group which aided the learning process.

Tim delivered the course well and was always on hand to help out where necessary.
Essentials Training
The course was excellent and Kyle matched the five stars with the service he delivered.
For someone who has been away from the keyboard for a long time his patience was appreciated. SOLIDWORKS is a more user friendly Cad package that has an amazing amount of information stored within. It's details can shed hours off creating complex designs. I would strongly recommend that before making any decisions on Cad software that you take the course and get a feel for what is available. It's definitely worth it. And give Kyle his dues. He kept going right through although he did offer breaks if anyone wanted one.
Essentials Training
There were a few occasions where I missed a step shown in a lesson demonstration because Joss’s clicks where a bit rapped or I was making a note at the time and lagged behind and lost the thread.

Grape sandwiches?
Essentials Training
The course did exactly what it needed to, and brought me (and everyone else) up to speed which can be hard when you don't know the backgrounds of everyone attending.

Joss was also really helpful and friendly, so it wasn't a painful four days sat in front of a computer!
Essentials Training
The Course Trainer was very friendly and very supportive. The pace of the training was a little slow initially, but that was sped up as we continued to the end of the course. I will be returning for training in the near future.
Essentials Training
excellent course, provided a vast range of information along side exercises to practice the skills learnt. Instructor was able to personalise responses to questions and advice according to industry, including how they may be adopted to a specific industry. Lesson where kept informal and well paced leaving plenty of time at the end of the course for more detailed questions.
Essentials Training
Course was very informative and well structured, having some previous SOLIDWORKS experience, I felt a little held up on the 1st day but that wasn't a big issue.

we were given lots of short breaks which I personally thought were a little to often as there was no problem leaving the room if you needed, but some people may find that preferable.

The course instructor was really good, very helpful and had a excellent way of explaining things, you didn't feel like your were in a classroom like some courses I have been on.
You didn't feel awkward asking questions or if you were stuck on anything.
Essentials Training
I thought he was very clear and suited the course to all levels of people attending.
Essentials Training
My course trainer was extremely helpful and patient throughout the course and spent extra time and consideration going over certain topics and areas that i struggled on which really helped me to get a understanding of the course. Not only this but he was also fun and very inclusive outside the classroom and really made the course enjoyable. the only criticism is his speech could become slightly monotone at points which when explaining long detailed points and instructions was a little bit hard to concentrate ad keep focused on.
Essentials Training
The course was very well structured, it covered all of the basic tools needed to get up and designing with SOLIDWORKS. The trainer was very passionate and energetic, making the course fun and enjoyable.
Essentials Training
Russ was very patient and helpful throughout length of course. As i was inexperienced in solid works, the pace in which the course proceeded was perfect for my ability.
Essentials Training
Very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Clear explanations all the way through the training.
Essentials Training
Ryan was very helpful to us all throughout the course, spending time with each of us to ensure we were happy with all of the lessons and exercises. There were certain sections that were more beneficial to each of us that we would have liked to spend more time on perhaps but it is an intensive course that covers so much material. He also managed to get some additional tips and information about certain aspects in that was also very helpful. Thank you to him and SS for a really good few days!
Essentials Training
Very knowledgeable and always knew the answers to all questions.
Essentials Training
Excellent! He was extremely helpful, clear and very approachable.
Essentials Training
Delivery of content very high standard. Very knowledgeable on all aspects of the software. Was good at tailoring to my specific needs and relating aspects of the software to what will be useful for me.
Essentials Training
A lot of information to get across in the 4 days. Did it well and explaining in detail when questioned
Essentials Training
Delivered course at a good pace providing worked examples of each section of the course. Had high level of knowledge of subject matter so was able to provide insights into uses and benefits above and beyond course content.
Essentials Training
Excellent knowledge and couldn't have been more willing to help or answer questions.
