SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional Training Course

DURATION: 3 Days

DESCRIPTION

SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional can be used company-wide as a document management system for SOLIDWORKS CAD data as well as any other internal documentation.

This course is structured towards the administration side of the software rather than the front end use- although an overview of this is discussed.

Really excellent
PDM Professional Training
Good course, delivered well
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 Professional Training
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.
PDM Professional Training
the setup from the pdm course was Nice and chronological, enough time to exercise and the whole basics are cover from A to Z
PDM Professional Training
Well, all questions that I had were answered, the lecture was performed accurately, easy to follow and efficiently. All course material was covered with time to spare.
PDM Professional Training
Tom progressed at a good pace through the content, ensuring everyone in the class was following along and understood each lesson. He was able to answer every question asked during the course and clearly had a great understanding of the software/content being taught.
PDM Professional Training
Tom was a brilliant and knowledgeable trainer and I would recommend him to others.
PDM Professional Training
The trainer (Tom) went at a very reasonable pace and ensured that everyone had understood each topic despite a fairly large group, but was able to cover all of the information in the book within the 3 days of the course, and still had additional time for asking questions and fixing issues at the end. He also tailored certain areas of the course to relate to what people were attending the course for (eg. migrating from Workgroup) and went into additional detail on areas which were unclear.

The course itself was well structured and I felt confident at the end of it that I had understood how the PDM system fits together and how it is built up from all of the individual components, offering a large degree of customisation and functionality.
PDM Professional Training
Very well run course & ample information about options no covered in the course
PDM Professional Training
So much information to take in, but it was all manageable; plenty of breaks, examples and reasons explained concisely and generally a positive atmosphere.
PDM Professional Training
HI,
We went through manual and it's fine. But engineer should be able to answer more advanced questions.
For me same training could be done online (video manual).

Feedback Response: Hi, 

Thanks for your feedback. The instructor who lead this event is part of our PDM team and has considerable experience with the PDM product and further aspects of API. After discussing the event with him I feel that some of the questions asked of him were beyond the course content and although we will always try to answer all questions raised we must recognise that there is a set agenda with key topics that need to be covered. Out of fairness to other attendees, some questions may have been noted and dealt with at the end of the course to keep the course moving along and relevant to all those attending the event. If you do still have questions outstanding, please do not hesitate to contact our support desk to discuss these further – 01926 333777. There is always a member of the PDM team on our support desk in order to provide you with the best advice.


In relation to video learning, this is something we have traditionally steered away from as it is felt that it would deprive attendees of the opportunity to ask additional questions and furthermore when something does go wrong, and you need additional guidance, there is no one around to help. We are investigating the possibility of adding additional eLearning resources which specifically follow up on the course content, however this resource would be intended to support the physical classroom course, not to replace it.


If you wish to contact me directly to discuss this matter please don’t hesitate to either call on the number mentioned above or email to training@solidsolutions.co.uk


Kind Regards, Peter Harkness | Training Manager.

Tom was helpful and made everyone feel at ease. He offered refreshments and comfort breaks regularly.
PDM Professional Training
Service Rating : Extremely knowledgeable in the subject and when not sure of the answer, he would endeavour to find out before the end of the days lesson.
Product : The course was well presented with excellent training facilities. However, the course could have been extended by a day to make it less intense and allow more practical interaction with time to think about why and how.

PDM Professional Training
My trainer Mark McVeigh was fantastic! Thanks to him now I have better understanding of how we can use EPDM in our company in a better way.
He was answering all my questions. I also had the support of Richard Farries, very experienced professional, who helped me find the best way of solving an issue we have with the data cards on the drawings.
I would strongly recommend this course.
PDM Professional Training
Service Rating : Quite a lot of detail to take in, but there is a good trainer / student ratio (1:8 in my group). Mark was very patient and helpful
Product : If there was one thing I thought could have been done slightly better it would be a longer introduction that best described how all the various set up options interacted with each other. A "workflow" of the software if you like, before diving into the real detail. However can't complain too much, got a lot from the training

Product : The course was well thought out. The only small addition it could do with is a demo of the final product to 'hold together' all the different aspects of the software.

Service Rating : Willingness to adapt to the needs of the class was great.
Product : It is a heavy subject and mostly concentrates on form creating. It is not clear at the outset what you have signed up for. I think more of an approach based on existing data would be more beneficial - i.e. a casestudy company with data and models to reference.
