Learn SolidWorks at your own pace.

by Jessica Skorut

If you’ve been looking for an engineering job lately, you’ve probably discovered that most of them require the use of SolidWorks as one of the main design/analysis tools.
If you’d like to learn SolidWorks but don’t have the time to take the formal training, or perhaps you have already attended a training course but still wish to learn more from the expert?

Then you should look up Paul Tran’s manuals.

Paul is a senior Certified SolidWorks Instructor at GoEngineer. He has been teaching SolidWorks for the past 18 years and has trained more than 7000 engineering professionals. Paul has also given guidance to more than 1/2 of the Certified SolidWorks Professionals and Certified SolidWorks Experts in the state of California. Before joining GoEngineer’s team, Paul spent nearly 12 years in the field of safety medical devices, where he used Pro-E, Unigraphics and AutoCad for most of his developments, creating an extensive knowledge base.

The manuals are comprised of lessons and exercises based on Paul’s extensive knowledge of this software. Every lesson and exercise in his books are created based on real world projects. Each of the projects have been broken down and developed into easy, comprehendible steps for the reader. Learn SolidWorks at your own pace, as you progress from simple fundamentals to advanced and complex design challenges. Additionally, at the end of every chapter, there are self-test questionnaires to ensure that the reader has gained sufficient knowledge from each section before moving on to more advanced lessons.

Currently there are 214 universities, colleges, and high schools that have adopted these manuals to teach their SolidWorks courses.
