SolidWorks is offering free seminars including a 3D skills program held throughout the summer at various locations in each state. Many of these seminars offer a free 90-day trial of SolidWorks software. The events last three hours and are conducted by a SolidWorks certified trainer. Other seminars include a SolidWorks hands-on test drive that trains prospective users by having them design an actual part; a CosmosWorks hands-on test session in which a certified engineer guides trainees through a handout guide; and a PDMWorks seminar that takes users through the design environment. To sign up for one of these seminars, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/3851-513.
