PDM Professional Training
Alan delivered the course content in a clear and precise manor without overloading us with too much at once. He gave plenty of time and support when completing tasks to ensure we understood and can now apply the deliverable. His job was not made easy by the fact we had to do the training remote due to the COVID-19 lock down but everything ran without a hitch.

PDM Professional Training
I have no previous experience of PDM or SOLIDWORKS and found it very hard to keep up and understand, even when I spoke up or asked questions. If not explained at each stage the meaning of why and what we are doing its very hard to grasp.
Feedback Response: Hello. Thank you for leaving this review and for your time on the phone. I understand that you haven't used PDM at all so this course would be quite in depth for a beginner. The course is aimed at the administrator of the software so I am confident the topics covered will be of benefit once you have had a chance to use the PDM vault. We will continue to support you after the course and hopefully you have found the additional resources provided helpful so far. Kind regards - Julie Weir | Training Manager
PDM Professional Training
Very Informative course and really put the information across in a detailed and thorough manner. Considering he had not trained in a few years and was stepping in for a colleague, it did not show.

Excellent knowledge of the system and a well tailored course to support all users. Regularly answered the more company specific questions surrounding PDM with ease, and in a language that the naïve user could understand.

After sickness on the first day of the course to the original instructor, Mark McVeigh did amazing job at shortness to undertake the training in a professional manner and still complete the course on the agreed date.
PDM Professional Training
Course was well run with a lot of detail. I was nervous, as an Engineer, that I did not have the IT skills to do the PDM Admin, but the course started at a good level that made it easy to follow. I have the confidence to "play" now. Many thanks Andy.
PDM Professional Training
Tom was great. Enthusiastic, helpful and understanding. No question was too big or too small and he always asked if everyone understood or needed further coaching.You can see he enjoys teaching about PDM and is passionate about an area of SOLIDWORKS that most non-admin users may overlook.

PDM Professional Training
Sehr guter Trainer und sehr gute Seminarunterlagern. Leider reichen bei einem so umfangreichen Thema, wie der PDM Administration auch drei Tage nicht aus.
Zudem waren die zur Verfügung gestellten Laptops nicht richtig vorbereitet, wo durch zusätzlich Zeit verloren ging.
Bei besserer Vorbereitung und etwas mehr Zeit, hätte es fünf Sterne gegeben
PDM Professional Training
The course covered al of the essential elements of PDM, the tutor tailored the course to suit the students attending and added some real life examples.
Each individual part of the PDM set up[ was covered, but at times it was difficult or see where they fitted into the overall picture, some flowcharts for example may have helped.

PDM Professional Training
Alan, who delivered the training, was very knowledgeable and delivered it very clearly and at a good pace, he was excellent. The course content covered a large number of topics within PDM broken down into manageable sections with each building on the last.
PDM Professional Training
Tom went through the course at an easy to follow speed, gave useful hints and extra pointers when he felt the need to. He allowed time for you to find and correct your own mistakes made in the exercises, giving a hint here and there if necessary. He also took into account a company specific situation and pointed out areas most suitable for change. Did not just leave us to our own devices at lunch and remained engaging with us all day, overall he was an enjoyable and gracious host.
PDM Professional Training
Tom was very helpful and clearly well-rehearsed in the field of SOLIDWORKS PDM. He took us through the course material at good pace and offered to answer any questions we had at any time. He was also very conscious about us not feeling overwhelmed by the large intake of information by offering breaks at regular intervals, and sat with us at lunch to answer any other questions and provide advice from his experiences. He also took some interest into what our companies do and often provided tips using PDM that may aid our company structure. There was also some opportunity to ask questions at the end of each day and request further support on our individual vault/admin tool setups if requested.

Suggested additions to the course:

I understand that as far as the admin training goes, virtually everything can be handled on Windows Explorer or the Admin Tool. However, in my experience, I strongly believe that actually using SOLIDWORKS a lot more in our case studies and exe

PDM was never going to be the most glamorous and exciting course but the engineer kept it engaging and relevant to our business requirements.
PDM Professional Training
Content was good and delivery was excellent. I found the course to be a bit slow at times while waiting for some attendees to catch up. Possibly additional exercises for those who are ahead would be beneficial?
otherwise I left the course on the last day keen to get started.
