DriveWorks Pro Advanced
As I have found on all Solid Solutions courses I have attended, the trainers have been helpful and friendly and really know their subject matter. The Advanced part of the course felt a little rushed though.
Motion Simulation Training
Friendly and Informative
Essentials Training
Instructor was very clear with the presentations and very helpful during the exercises.
Certification day
I attended the Certification Day in Fareham in May and again the trainer was excellent. Couldn't really ask for more. Was very friendly and professional. Helped make the stress of the expert exam a little less
Essentials Training
efficient and knowledgeable instructor
Certification day
The trainer on the day was experienced and helpful and the Durham office was easy to get to driving down from Newcastle.
Simulation Training
Very good knowledge of Simulation package
SolidCAM (CNC) 2.5 Training
Taught the course to match the needs of everyone attending, with no rushing or delays. If Gary could not answer at the time he endeavoured to find out and let us know later that day.

Fraser was such a good tutor and learnt us in a quick and simple method. I would recommend to any future newcomer to SOLIDWORKS.

Very happy with all the support and training David has provided to me both over the phone and in the classroom. David always finds a solution to my questions and happily gives additional advice to help me understand and use the software better.
Electrical 3D Training
Dave Ashford was our trainer. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and good at explaining the subject.
I would have given this 5 stars if the training booklet matched the SOLIDWORKS version we are using.
Drawings Training
I have dealt with SolidSolutions for some time now in my company, and every time I speak to a member of their staff or visit their training facility I am always impressed. All members of staff are freidnly and very willing to provide support and help wherever required.
Essentials Training
I would strongly recommend doing the course if you are new to the software and the course is really interesting.
Surface Modelling Training
Fraiser was very knowledgeable in this area and all other that i asked about, course went very smoothly without feeling rushed and came away with alot of skills that can apply to real life work thanks to the teaching and the course
Advanced Part Modelling Training
I had a one to one training course which really helped as I was able to go at my own speed rather than trying to keep up with the other students as on previous courses. The trainer was very understanding & kind. I really enjoyed the course.
Essentials Training
Our trainer was able to answer all our questions and took the time to make sure we understood the principles he was teaching

Excellent knowledge, cheerful and patient, he always found the easiest way to explain everything but always keeping the technical level.

Excellent presentation skills and understanding of SW drawing functionality
Simulation Training
Covered the subject to my expectations
Essentials Training
Went quite quickly through each module - quite an amount to take in in one go. Could be broken down a bit better but otherwise very useful.
Feedback Response:

Thanks for this
feedback, it's really valued! We constantly work on the balance of the
Essentials training course trying to cater to the varying capabilities &
learning preferences of all those who attend. 
We are working on
some new content that will hopefully support you after the event, allowing you
to review key content from the class at any time. With this and other projects
in mind our Training Manger Julie Weir will be in touch via email to discuss
any suggestions you may have on how we could make course better.

Provided a platform to try the design while teaching, which I found very useful and informative.
DraftSight Training
Really impressed with the course and the instructors. The teacher/student ratio was fantastic so I was able to ask questions specific to my needs/future use of the software as we went along. This meant I got exactly what I needed out of the 2 days. Lovely offices and a decent lunch provided. I will definitely use them again.

PDM Standard
Quite an intensive and boring course, was made manageable and more interesting by Steve. Broke the course up nicely with course work - real life situations within PDM and Practical applications.
PDM Professional Training
Thomas Davis was a great guy who made a complex topic easy to grasp.
DraftSight Training
very professional throughout, easy to talk to and explained all aspects with great detail.
Drawings Training
Average, knowledgable trainer but not willing to wait when supplied laptop is not functioning correctly or stop and sort the problem out.
This led to 3 lessons not being followed as the course advises.

Problems with laptop;
mouse not functioning correctly- fortunately another attendee had a spare mouse that he lent me to continue.
Laptop crashed three times resulting in lost work.
Feedback Response: Hi,

Thank you for leaving this feedback. We perform Health Checks on all of our equipment every 2 months and our machines are on a 3 year retirement plan to prevent them getting too old or badly worn. If any issues occur with the software, our instructors are all capable of repairing them. However, your feedback has made me realise that if problems occur with our hardware then instructors may easily be caught out, without a readily available solution to offer. To try and overcome this I have this morning ordered a large batch of mice that will be available for the instructors to take as 'backup kit'. 

I am very sorry that you were unable to follow 3 lessons as intended because of these issues. Our Training Manager Julie will contact you directly to discuss what we can do to make up for your negative experience and hopefully, we can assist you with any content that you feel was missed.

Kind Regards - Peter Harkness | Customer Experience Manager
Assembly Modelling Training
Course content covered in simple and effective manner. All questions answered well, instructor was clearly very competent with the wider uses of the software.
Essentials Training
Top guy! knowledgeable and patient!
Good training, possibly a little slow to start with leaving less time for the later topics. Not necessarily due to the trainer, the group possibly lead conversations on a tangent, discussing non-training topics. Would have been happy for the trainer to direct the conversation back on track if they felt the conversation was not relevant.
