WEB TRAINING

Interactive web sessions over the Internet: anytime, anywhere

This is a low cost and convenient way to learn. Training is tailored to your needs and allows you to ask questions and move at your own speed. To schedule training you will need to contact a service engineer who will want to determine your skill level and required outcomes.

  • You see everything that we do during the session and you can also interact. You sit back and watch us run your programs and demonstrate functionality and then we can watch you repeat the lesson. We can also transfer sample files and support documentation.
  • No waiting, No expense. No expensive travel or time away from the business is needed for either of us making scheduling a breeze! This new style of teaching is not only far less disruptive to business it has proven to be extremely effective. You can get started and be productive instantly.
  • It is permission based. You download a small app that generates a password and ID so that we can connect. We can only access your computer when the session is running.
  • Secure access. Your connections are established via fully encrypted data channels using high security 2048-bit RSA key exchange and 256-bit AES session encoding.
  • Support requires broadband Internet connection such as cable, DSL or ISDN.
  • Ideally voice connection via a Telephone with a Speakerphone would also be connected.
  • Affordable. COST is US$150/AU$180 per hour (which can be delivered as 2 x 1/2 hour sessions).

If you are interested in Web Based Training please email our service engineer and tell us the FastCAM® product you want to learn more about. It is helpful if you can give us an idea of attendee numbers, their current level of competency and also what you would like to achieve. We can then design and quote a learning module to suit.

There will always be a place for traditional face-to-face training, particularly for large groups. Our high quality training courses are designed to help staff gain new skills that can be used immediately on the job. We design the curriculum prior to each training session. For example, if you have specific needs such as for shape development, we can change the focus of the training. Some programs may be tailored specifically for structural or Light Sheetmetal, heavy Fab., etc.

Groups can include a mix of users. Managers often benefit from an increased understanding of existing and potential production efficiencies with the latest technologies.
