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.

Alex was very clear with his training and easy to follow along with and had no problems stopping to help or explain certain things further.

There wasn't any questions that he couldn't answer or help with.

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

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

Great communication & very approachable

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

Having used SOLIDWORKS for almost a year i was able to keep up well, the instructor, Alex was very good at explaining to those with less experience.

I was more interested in fabrication than machining/3D printing
Feedback Response: Hello Pearse, Many thanks for providing this feedback. The Essentials course is a great way of getting up to speed with SOLIDWORKS and covers an introduction to part, assembly and drawing creation. Typically our customers would begin with this course and move onto fabrication courses including Sheet Metal and Weldments. These are further courses we offer and perhaps are what you are looking for. I will follow up with you to provide further information on these courses and the other courses we offer.
Kind Regards Julie Weir Training Manager
