SOLIDWORKS Simulation Advanced FEA

Learn advanced functionality and the latest features

Training Course Contents

The focus of this course is towards the advanced functionality within SOLIDWORKS Simulation software including all the features you wish you had known about before, and content from the most recent releases of SOLIDWORKS Simulation

This course is built from the expert knowledge of the most experienced SOLIDWORKS Simulation instructors in North America. This course is not a replacement for the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Linear Static (formerly Essentials), as this course is designed for users that already have an intermediate level of knowledge in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

"The SOLIDWORKS Simulation Advanced FEA is a great course. Lots of practical examples and tips — well done."

— Dan Smyth, Toronto Rehab.

"I found the overhead examples and the instructors recommendations for problem solving the best thing about this course."

— George, Kucherenko, Protech.

"I really enjoyed having a small class allowing me to get a lot of time with the instructor who was very passionate about the subject and visibly enjoyed teaching the class."

— Aidan Aird, STEM Kids Rock

Training Methods

Choose from three different training methods available to you

SOLIDWORKS Group Training

Group/Public Training

Receive SOLIDWORKS training as a group in a traditional classroom environment.

Classes can be taken in one of our 12 training locations across Canada using SOLIDWORKS approved training content and methodologies.

  • Cost effective training method.
  • Leave the office to concentrate on learning.
  • Learn more through group questions and feedback.
SOLIDWORKS Online Training

Live Online Training

With our online training you will experience an interactive learning environment where you can give feedback, gain access to the SOLIDWORKS training files and get time to work on training exercises.

  • Online courses are typically half day sessions.
  • More effective than video based training, with recorded videos learners are often not as focused on the training and skip exercises.
SOLIDWORKS Onsite Training

Onsite at your location

Receive training at your place of work. This style of flexible training is perfect for teams or individuals who are faced with a specific challenge and require personalized courses with on-the-job coaching.

  • Use our state-of-the-art mobile classroom at your facility.
  • Bring your team up to a consistent level of knowledge by having them take the same training at the same time.
  • Benefit from flexible scheduling options.
