Training is important for all experience levels to ensure your employees are working efficiently in SOLIDWORKS. For even the most seasoned SOLIDWORKS users, regular training can offer fresh approaches and perspectives to complete tasks within the software, as well as reduce the amount of time your team spends problem-solving. Whether you require beginner, intermediate, or advanced training for your workforce, we provide a thorough and thoughtful education to ensure productivity.

GSC Classroom Training

Hands-on and Instructor-led

GSC's classroom training offers an immersive experience led by expert instructors with decades of experience. Our classroom training not only provides a fantastic learning environment away from the distractions of your workplace, but it's the fastest way to learn everything you need to know and get you back on the job — leveraging all your new skills — as soon as possible.

Our hands-on training follows a "learn by doing" approach. Our instructors engage and challenge you to apply your newly-attained skills through relevant case studies and exercises that relate directly to the skills you want to grow.

Our main goal is to make you successful. Whether you are looking to refresh your skills or expand your knowledge with advanced topics, we have a class fit for your needs.

Live, Online

Live and Instructor-led

Need robust training but don't have the schedule or flexibility to leave the office? We've designed our online training specifically for you. Our classes are taught in 2-4 hour segments, requiring minimal time away from the job.

Our remote classroom approach gives you the same hands-on experience you've come to expect from our classroom courses, with all of the convenience of online training.

We use a unique combination of tools so you can see our instructors and they can see your desktop - at the same time. This means that during lab time, your instructor can see you working in real-time and can jump in and offer assistance the moment you need it.

GSC also offers you the ability to take many of our classes without needing a software license or a machine to run the license on. Using our virtual training machines allows users like you from anywhere in the world to take our training, even if you use Android or Macintosh machines to train on.
