Well done Rory and thanks for all your help!
I'm now looking forward to getting some practice at work.

Service Rating : Very knowledgeable and well prepared.

Familiar with common mistakes which one makes during the exercise to instantly point out those mistakes and rectify them accordingly.

Friendly, pleasent and never come across as being patronising.

Traninng stations all made ready and fit for purpose.

Spacious room with good lighting, comfortable seats well placed with large screen for delivering course material

Great canteen with enough varieties of food to suit different tastes.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Engaging, knowledgeable and blessed with the requisite sense of humour.
Product : SOLIDWORKS Essentials. A good introduction to CAD and the software application - informing us of the wide range of technical capabilities available from SOLIDWORKS.
Essentials Training
Patient and very knowledgeable
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Very informative. Patient. Helped me to learn specific shortcuts related to my job.
Product : Good course, used it more to re-affirm my knowledge for particular parts.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Very helpful and knowledgeable with lots of patience
Product : Fast paced and very full, some prior experience a must but having a live trainer adds hugely more value than online or book alone.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Chris Green was a great instructor and very patient specially with a slow learner!!
Product : wondered if the training course could maybe be split up as was a lot to take in over 4 days when starting from scratch
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Good knowledge of the product
Product : I feel a beginners course could be added for non users.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Chris was great. Really at home with the material and the software. Clear explanations, lots of helpful hints and tips, and overall did a really good job.
Product : The Essentials course is to get a complete beginner up to a basic standard of competence with the software. That is exactly what happened - I was a complete beginner, and now I am competent! I am under no illusions that I know everything - SOLIDWORKS is far too complex and powerful to learn everything in four days. However, I can now build parts, create assemblies, do some basic simulation work, generate drawings for sending to manufacture, and I have a great base on which to build. For anybody wanting to learn the software and get a good grounding in all aspects of it, this course is excellent!
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Knowledgable, clear and supportive
Product : Useful, comprehensive, with a good balance between lesson and exercises
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Very thorough and knowledgeable!
Product : I came away with a lot of knowledge considering this was my first time on Solid Works. The course was presented in a organised and interesting way.
Essentials Training
Very good course with lots of content. Tom is very knowledgeable and helpful. It is taught at a good pace ensuring everyone fully understands and helps if not. Great introduction to SOLIDWORKS.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Very good. Went through the course at the right pace for everyone to ensure all was covered thoroughly and stopped to give help to anyone at any moment. The food was also great.
Product : The training course was excellent. Both the facilities and the training were of high standard. Taught in a relaxed and thorough manner.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Well planned and well presented.
Product : Very informative, I have used SOLIDWORKS for few years but still learnt a lot.

Willing to help, clear and understands that there is never a daft question!
Essentials Training
Really enjoyed the course. Premises was good and trainer very capable.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Good knowledge of the software and managed the pace well for the different students on the course. Sometimes was a bit unclear about why we were doing steps in case studies but this might be more to do with the course material.
Product : Lots of good content. Having had a fair amount of experience of other CAD packages the pace was fairly slow but that allowed for a lot of interesting details to be included in each lesson. Definitely worth attending even if you feel you could teach yourself.
Essentials Training
Very good course.
Essentials Training
Good course well taught
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Good well paced course, Chris was knowledgeable and quick to help when needed.
Product : Good location and nice lunch.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Delayed start waiting for late comers, 90% waiting for 10% that never showed up. Although I discarded my own used plate etc.. I was surprised the group were pulled up about leaving our table untidy at lunch - this is certainly not something that needed to be passed on to delegates, trainers should ensure area left tidy.
Software was not up to date with the trainers (Ben). this caused some problems following his lead. Seemed inconvenience if asked to go back a step. Ignorant staff (receptionist and passing other staff in area).
Product : Not worth the money. Also at this price you should supply a good quality certificate.
Feedback Response: Hi, and thanks for leaving your feedback. On the morning of the course your referring to we had a couple of cancellations where we were not notified in advance. We usually try to give attendees 15 minutes tolerance on the start time on the first day as we appreciate some people make significant journeys in order to join the course. Particularly on Essentials where customers are likely to be visiting our offices for the first time. On this occasion the instructor began as soon as I had managed to contact the late delegates to confirm that they were not just outside and about to come in. I'm sorry if you felt this delayed the start time beyond an acceptable point but we endeavour to deal with 'no-shows' as quickly as possible. Regarding the lunchtime arrangements I wholeheartedly agree that we should never pass logistical information regarding anything to do with the facilities to our delegates, we strive to provide a seamless training experience and I apologise for this. Also, it is our policy that trainers use the same version of the software as is being trained and that the software is set to a state where by it is identical to a factory fresh installation and again, I offer my sincere apologies for this. I will discuss this with the instructor who lead the event and I will contact you today to follow this up with you directly. Thanks Peter Harkness - Training Manager

Ben was a good trainer, was very knowledgeable and very helpful
Essentials Training
Very professionally delivered
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Very knowledgeable and patient.
Product : There was a lot of content but the pace was just about right. We followed what the trainer was doing on a projector screen on our own PC's and then completed exercises individually at the end of each task. The trainer was on hand during the exercises to help out if we got stuck.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : I found Chris easy going and very knowledgeable about SOLIDWORKS. Chris was also very helpful in assisting as and when required.
Product : I found the course very helpful and for the most part it was covered at a pace where you could keep up which for me I prefer as I believe you can retain what you have learned more easily.
Essentials Training
patient and helpful
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Both helpful and knowledgeable
Product : If i have any comment to make it would be that there is too much information to process and capture in the four days. Left think that I wouldn't remember it all.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Very professional trainer and quite experienced despite the young age.
Product : It has been very useful and uncovered the most of the tricky aspects of the software.
Essentials Training
good course but a lot of information to take in, personally think it would be better if it was split up into two courses
Essentials Training
Very good training,excellent grounding to the software concisely delivered.
Essentials Training
I found the course very useful. It was well paced with a lot of information. I look forward to the other sessions.
Essentials Training
Very helpful, the pace the tutor presented the course allowed every age group in the room to understand the current task and he was efficient with moving the course along so everything was easily covered within the four days. There were also plenty of exercises for those who read ahead.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Coarse was well laid out and tutors were had a great level of knowledge. I had never used SOLIDWORKS before this coarse but left more than happy with what I'd learnt
Product : Great opening coarse for SOLIDWORKS I had never used before but left with a large range of basic skills in many aspects of SOLIDWORKS

Benjamin
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Well constructed and informative course
Product : Very good course, well constructed and clearly explained by Rod.
Essentials Training
The training given by Tim and Tom was very professional and informative.
They covered everything very well and were very helpful when answering queries and solving any issues.

The only thing i would add is that the course didn't give any examples of use in the joinery trade and was mainly based on an engineering format.
Essentials Training
Helpful instructor with a lot of knowledge to share. Great friendly atmosphere.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable in subject.
Product : Well structured course, excellent facilities at venue.
Essentials Training
Great support, from great people. Perfect first lesson into CAD and SOLIDWORKS, nicely spaced for time, never felt rushed/ forced or it was moving too slowly. No complaints
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Nice guy with plenty of time for everyone!
Product : Top notch, comprehensive course.
Essentials Training
The trainer was new, and he was maybe a little fast for some users.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Tom was a very competent instructor who made the course very easy to follow - particularly for a complete novice like myself. He was more than happy to keep a pace that suited all ability levels and was quick to help when anyone got stuck. Support engineer Tim was also very attentive and readily offered assistance where it was needed.
Product : The training course was great, even for a novice like myself. It covered the basics of using SOLIDWORKS, from simple menu navigation and drawing on the first day to building moving assemblies on the last.
Essentials Training
Very good teacher, with a good knowledge of SOLIDWORKS. Was very welcoming and friendly. Could answer most questions straight away, and if not found someone with the answer.
Essentials Training
Demonstrated good understanding of the tool. Explained and demonstrated the various applications clearly.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : The course trainer was both knowledgeable and patient, together with ensuring we all were informed about the new existing feature of SOLIDWORKS 2016. Personally, i just needed a little more time spent on repetition of the key navigation steps to the most useful commands.
Product : Training Course - Very thorough on SOLIDWORKS features & design layout. Again just needed more time on SW navigation familiarization to make it easier to then take on board each of the relevant command(s) logic.
Essentials Training
Service Rating : Excellent training for the novice or beginner. A steady pace with plenty of one-to -one support from the friendly and knowledgeable trainer. Patient and approachable at all times.
Product : Covered all areas needed and gave me the confidence to be able to use the software to its full potential. I would definitely recommend.
