What Our Clients Say

One of the best instructor/professors I have ever had. Easily relatable and easy to follow. Always asked if anyone needed help and walked around occasionally to look for trouble.

Mitchell Taylor

GSC is hands-down the best place to go for your software training. Their staff are incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and hospitable. One of the other students in my training course was a disabled lady, and GSC went above and beyond to accommodate her needs without making her feel less capable than anyone else in the room. The facility itself is very comfortable and has a wonderful aesthetic and is jam-packed with all kinds of fascinating materials, processes, and tools - and their staff would be more than happy to share any of those experiences with you!


The SOLIDWORKS training I received at GSC has turned me into the expert “Go to Guy” at my company.  For the times when I cannot answer my colleagues questions, GSC is one call away.  They give me the answers quickly so I can go back to being an expert!

I had played around in the software a bit prior to taking the course and encountered several issues. Now that I've taken the course at GSC, I'm much more confident that I'll be able to overcome those issues when I get back to my projects.


The SOLIDWORKS Essentials class was packed with information delivered in a well-paced, clear format. The environment was inviting and comfortable, the people were very friendly and helpful, the instructor was a superb teacher, and the entire experience inspired creativity. The knowledge I’ve gained through this course will surely add great value to my skillset as an employee. I’m excited to take more courses at GSC!

Everything about the training was awesome. I have been using SOLIDWORKS for 6 years prior to taking the essentials class and I picked up a lot of tricks I didn't know.


One of the best training sessions I have taken in my 32-year career. The instructor showed a complete mastery of the subject, but could still meet students where they were starting from, and lead them to a better understanding of the material.

Great training, I learned quite a bit in just a few days. Evan presented very clearly and fluidly. He has a very firm grip on the material


Overall I was surprised to see how similar the online class was to the in person classes. I thought that the lecture part was identical as far as my eyes were concerned.


GSC's online training courses are fundamentally brilliant, with the expertise in instructors and the dense materials that they offer to you. This is my second online class for 3D CAD software and it was definitely worth it!
