Are you responsible for training your CAD users but feel overwhelmed by the task? Are you stymied by the problems associated with enforcing CAD standards? Does your management expect you to make your users more productive? In this class, we cover some strategies for combining standards development and enforcement with an in-house training program to solve all 3 problems at once while keeping your budget under control. We start by building your company training program via efficiency analysis, move into creating effective training materials, and then we give you some ideas for becoming a better instructor. Next, we talk about turning your training program into your standards program by using your own written and video files to build a virtual resource library. If you're responsible for creating a standards or training program, you can't afford to miss this class.
