Essentials Training
Excellent Course Providing The Information Required.
Essentials Training
The sessions are well organised and completed within the allocated time slots. The course trainer was able to answer the questions asked and if he wasn't sure of the answer he would keep it in mind and make sure you get an answer. I liked how he gave alternative way of doing the same thing.

However some options are not gone through thoroughly. for example many features in SOLIDWORKS proved you with many option and boxes to tick and what impact it does have on the model if selected etc...

Also the room booked is small to work comfortably.
Essentials Training
They are good training given us.
Essentials Training
It was a brilliant course and well layed out, Ryan was an excellent teacher and the course content was very relevant and just what was required.
Essentials Training
Out tutor, Fraser, clearly knew his subject very well and was extremely helpful and patient with all his students. He had a cheerful demeanor throughout the four days and volunteered to come in an hour earlier than the start time to help one student with a particular problem that they were having difficulty solving.

He certainly went the extra mile.
Essentials Training
Trainer was very good at explaining the best ways to use the programme, kept a good pace throughout the course so I could keep up to the current task and was a very approachable individual if I need any further assistance.
As for the course itself I thoroughly enjoyed it and I learnt a lot of new ways to use SOLIDWORKS which will aid me greatly in the future.
Essentials Training
Tom was very helpful, went the extra mile, great teacher.

Essentials Training
Rory Niles delivered the content at a pace that allowed the whole class to move through the course content as a group. In addition Rory provided excellent one to one advice as and when required throughout the four days of the course.
I came away from the four day course amazed at how much I had learned.
Thanks Rory !
Essentials Training
An excellent course and excellent trainer. Rory is animated and drums the important points into you without being boring or repetitive.
Very helpful when you hit a problem and makes you think about the right solution before handing you the answer.
Essentials Training
Chris was fantastic, he went through all the questions I had and related it to our pace. He delivered the learning in a way a novice/ new starter on solid works could understand and also put into practice.

Great..
Essentials Training
A fantastic weeks training, I learnt so much and more than I expected.
Sameer is a credit to Solid Solutions.
Looking forward to my next course.
Essentials Training
Thorough and friendly, learnt everything I needed to and some.
Essentials Training
He was brilliant, and gave us so much more knowledge than what was in the book (not too much more though)
Essentials Training
Owen was very patient, supportive and generally a good teacher. The course was well laid out and the learning curve was not steep enough to become overwhelming. I would 100% recommend the course to anyone that has not had formal solid works training in the past.
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
Essentials Training
Course was well run and the subject was taught with clear understanding.
Essentials Training
The trainer was both knowledgeable, humorous and understanding of a variety of different abilities.
Essentials Training
Yes the trainer Benjamin was very good, relaxed but with excellent knowledge.
Essentials Training
Really helpful course leader, well structure course and very interactive with good examples and chances to practice material learnt.
Essentials Training
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
Essentials Training
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.
