In a previous article, I recently asked for the opinions of others about the best methods to train new employees for SolidWorks. So far, the response is split between “on the job training with a mentor” and “VAR taught introductory courses”. This is a bit of a surprize given the emphasis placed on VAR based training these days. Do others question of the value of VAR training? Is it effective? Or, is VAR training just not worth the costs or the time away from work? My own experience is that VAR training classes do not necessarily give the best benefit to new users.
The responses made me curious about something else. How did current SolidWorks users learn the software?
