We’re all busy. Training, by a real trainer is a good way to compress 6 months of doing tutorials and reading books into a few days. But who can even spare a few days? If you have to travel for training, you’re not only giving up your day time, but also your nights. And then the expense of travel, hotels, and meals. There are benefits of good old-fashioned face-to-face training that you can’t duplicate digitally. I’ve done enough training to recognize the benefits. But sometimes, you just don’t have time for anything else.
I mentioned earlier I’m going to finally get formal training on Solid Edge. I’m going to get it from a live class, but done through Go To Meeting. There are other virtual and face-to-face students as well. I’m excited for a couple of reasons. First, learning the details of the software that I haven’t learned other ways is important. Second, the whole virtual class will be a new thing to me. I’ve spent countless hours on Go To Meeting, but never in this kind of setting.
For those of you who have taken Solid Edge training, what was the format? Ever do it online? Ever do other training (multi-day, 7 hour day sessions) this way? What are your impressions? Strengths? Weaknesses? Things to watch out for? Also, if you just want to give me some advice on the training, that would be welcome too.
