3 Reasons Why You Should Consider SOLIDWORKS Training for Your New Employees

Man studying at computerDo you remember your worst “first day on the job”? I remember mine. It was the day an old boss told me: “Good morning, this is your desk, your computer and your password to get into computer. Good luck!” ... and that was all. No training, no onboarding, no orientation. 

Nowadays, the demand for workers is exceeding the supply (and this is particularly true for technical areas). We are in a job-seeker market, and career development is the number one factor to attract employees. With a very limited talent pool, no company can afford to lose employees because of the lack of proper training.

Technical training in 3D software is a must in the onboarding process of Designers and Mechanical Engineers, no matter the experience level. Here are 3 reasons why:

  1. Improved productivity. The faster you master the software, the less time it will take you to complete your designs with confidence and effectiveness.  You can also move faster to more specialized applications like Simulation, Electrical Design or Data Management, increasing your value as an employee for any business.
  2. Increased efficiency. While SOLIDWORKS is a intuitive, easy-to-work-with tool, it has its tricks, shortcuts and best practices. A solid base will help you design with minimal mistakes and iterations. Learning by trial and error is always an option, but why waste time in redesigning and corrections when you can get it right at the first time? 
  3. Improved engagement and work satisfaction. As human beings, we all have a need for learning and improvement, and we feel happier when we are proficient in our jobs. We like employers that help us grow in our careers and care about our professional development.

GSC’s training adapts to your learning availability and work style. In addition to our regular classes offered at several locations in Wisconsin and Illinois, we provide online live training, where you can interact with the instructor from the convenience of your own location, in classes taught in 2-hour segments.
