I am interested in taking a class and learning Pro E. I currently use SolidWorks but have seen a lot of companies using Pro E. Can anyone tell me who offers such a training class and perhaps a student version of ProE? I would prefer taking a class in the Milwaukee Wisconsin area. Thanks Larry
Come on, Jon, just because you never bothered to learn enough Pro/E to know what you are talking about you want to deny another person an opportunity to learn a program that is THE 3D CAD standard?
Unless you are building LEGO bricks for living, there is no way you can do the same job faster in SW than in Pro/E. I'll admit that SW 2003 finally got to the point where it doesn't make me want to shut it down and forget about its very existence 5 minutes after starting it, but that's a far cry from SW actually being able to hold a candle to Pro/E. Don't confuse the guy, let him learn and make his own conclusions.
this link is to a PTC FAQ on their 'Universities Plus' educational program. It includes contact information for Larry Fire, their Manager of Educational Services. There used to be a list on their site of all the 2 & 4 year schools which taught Pro/e, don't think it's there anymore. But, if you ask Larry about schools in your area, he'd have a good list, with contact names. Email him, he's a nice guy and he's conscientious.
And, if you have a bundle of money and want to go to the private guys, Bart is very good. There's also Rand Technologies, possibly in Milwaukee as well as PTC offices in Lisle, a southwest suburb of Chicago. Also, Pro/USER or a regional users group might have more training information.
