The course was fast paced but the instructor was patient and helpful.

Really enjoyed the course. There is a lot to take in initially but Ben presented it in a knowledgeable and approachable manner so if there were any issues it was easily resolved.
Essentials Training
Alex was a great teacher. Very patient and you could tell he knew the product inside out. He confidently answered every question put to him. Even when it wasn't relevant to what we were doing. He could suggest features and more products and services you could offer to solve any need we may have.

Great training from a very helpful trainer Alex
Essentials Training
Basic course is very good. Learnt a lot, does move on each topic very quickly though. Maybe tailor half a day to see what functions each person uses more and repeat those several times.
Essentials Training
I did my Solid works training at the Furness Vale training Centre. Having never used CAD in any form it is a new experience for me and was a little daunting at first. Once we got started our course instructor Ben was excellent. It was a lot of information to take in. However it was explained very well and any issues I had were easily resolved by Ben who dealt with these in an effective and personable manner.
Essentials Training
John did exceptionally well teaching the essentials of SOLIDWORKS to a class with no experience using the software.
Answered questions well and provided support when needed.
Essentials Training
Jon was exceptionally patient with the newbies amongst us and he gave concise explanations to all queries no matter the complexity of the issue. I learnt a great deal of new shortcuts to speed up my work flow as well as new tools to aid my design process. The new offices at Abbey Park are fantastic, easy to access, good parking and the lunch provided was great! Highly recommend attending any course by Solid Solutions. As a user of Inventor for 7 years, I started with the Essentials course and look forward to getting stuck into the more advanced course soon.

Essentials Training
Jamie was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Essentials Training
Very helpful helped you with anything, taught us how to use SOLIDWORKS. As a group we were allowed to carry on with exercises before and after each day. Covered all bases and responded to all questions.
Essentials Training
Tom the instructor was well prepared and communicated the contents of the Essential course very well. There were distractions from within the room but I felt Tom handled the situation well. Overall a well worth investment of my time and money.

The down side was the facilities at the Hammersmith office, the room was too small for the 7 users and was generally to hot and stuffy which when trying to maintain the concentration levels of those who were there to learn a little difficult. We had to complain and ended up with a portable fan in the room which did little.
The lunch is a little repetitive and should be varied. Others within the building were having hot food while ours were cold and had been delivered at 9.00am in the morning.
Essentials Training
Very patient and helpful instructor who provided assistance and answers beyond the scope of the course.
Essentials Training

Essentials Training
I took the 4 day Essentials course in Durham.
Dave our main trainer was a brilliant teacher, very knowledgeable and clear to understand.

I was sent by my employer to take the course and unfortunately for me I could comfortably carry out 99% of the taught content having used the program for 4 years. So it was slightly simple. However, I did pick up at least 5-6 great shortcuts and helpful tips I was unaware of that will increase my efficiency in SOLIDWORKS.
The other 3 course attendees were very much at the start of their SOLIDWORKS experience. Dave was very patient and made sure everyone was on the same page before moving onto another topic or exercise. He also took questions throughout to further explain any problems people had.

Dave was very chatty during breaks, giving a good insight into SOLIDWORKS as a company as well as other features and add ons to the program.
Essentials Training
Alex was an experienced trainer and helped the course run smoothly catering for all levels of experience
Essentials Training

He presented the course at a good pace covering the lesson with detail and allowing the more advanced attendees to complete all the Exercises while the more technologically challenged individuals can catch up
Essentials Training
Supportive and Friendly
Essentials Training
Answered all my queries
Essentials Training
1) course was extremely rushed
2) more time should have been spent on the crucial steps (first few chapters) rather than assemblies and exploded views.
3) chapters was pushed through too quickly.
4) moved ahead too quickly when not everyone was up to speed.
Feedback Response: Hi, Many thanks for taking my call earlier and talking me through your comments. I am really sorry you found the course so rushed, this should not have been the case and I am disappointed to hear this. Our policy is to run events at the pace of the slowest user so that everyone can follow along and learn the content at a comfortable pace. Sometimes it can appear that all users are following along comfortably and the course pace can be misjudged. We try to improve our service wherever possible and I want to assure you that I will take your feedback into account and will speak with the training team regarding course structure and best practises. Kind Regards Julie Weir | Training Manager

Very higj spec learning environment. Sam was a please to have teach me was very good at explaining and was patient with the slower members of the group.
Essentials Training
Good course, easy to follow.
Essentials Training
It was quite obvious that Rory has an expert knowledge of Solid Works. More importantly he was able to convey that knowledge in easy-to-understand terms and in a relaxed, humorous style. Although a lot of information was crammed into the four days, the course was well paced with the right balance of theory and practical exercises.
Essentials Training
The course was very good the examples was easy to read through and the instructor was always on hand to give assistant if needed. We was supplied paper copy for the training.
Essentials Training
The training was very in depth but the trainer, Micheal, made time for each of us to go through any issues we may have had.
