Thanks to our extensive experience in conducting training courses for all proficiency levels, spanning over 25 years, we will easily adapt the content of the course to your company profile. Our priority are personalised and custom training courses, after completion of which the participants can easily move on to work on issues and problems found in everyday work. Along with the offer consisting of standard courses, we also propose:

  • creating working methodologies and system use techniques, improving the efficiency of realisation of technical tasks,
  • technological workshops, the main goal of which is to provide the participants with valuable practical knowledge, regardless of the software used (composite structure design, element design, GD&T tolerance, etc.)

CAD training, designed both for people who have not had any previous contact with the program, and those with little experience. It covers basic and intermediate issues in solid and surface modeling, assemblies, parameterization and creating 2D documentation.
