Spend some time scanning thru and compiling a resource list. If you have a maint contract don't ignore the PTC resources; knowledge base (quite extensive), etc.

Start with this. It's the user area of the PTC website which has several free tutorials to get you started with WF & WF2:

The three listed below provide professional training courses on every function within Pro/e, including on Intralink PDM. All offer project-based, hands-on training. CADTRAIN is strictly CBT, everything online, downloadable training files, Camtasia based demos, onscreen tutorials with screen captured graphics. CADquest, on the other hand, is textbook based with downloadable training files. Those from CADTRAIN and CADquest are, full PTC-style courses and parallel PTC's course structure. Frotime, which also does CBT, has shorter, more partial tutorial style training. They're approaching course structure by offering several tutorials on the same functionality, such as Surfacing 1, 2, & 3 and Advanced Surfacing 1, 2, & 3. With each costing around $15 and a Surfacing Subscription (6-8 tutorials) costing $60, they have pricing structure suited to invididuals who don't have corporate resources behind them.

Community Colleges and Universities: PTC has an extensive network of schools that either train students in Pro/e software or use it to teach drafting/modelling/engineering/design. If you know of such a school, they likely have an Educational License which lets them offer any course taught by PTC. Here's a peek at the educational version and what it contains:

has the advantage of spreading what would normally be a 40 hour sprint through a ton of new material over an 8-12 week period. Lot's more opportunity to get comfortable with the software and likely new concepts of design, lots more tube time and time to ask questions of an experienced user. It's where I got most of my formal training; I highly recommend it.
Numerous books, one by Roger Toogood, another by L. G. Lamit and several specifically on sheetmetal with WF2. All available on Amazon for under $60, they provide a good, broad overview of working with WF2. All by professional writers and teachers. Lamit, for example, has been teaching Pro/e for over a decade at De Anza College, Cupertino CA (Silicon Valley) and has written several books on Pro/e. Toogood's authored most of the Student Edition Tutorials since I-squared at least. These guys know Pro/e.
Student Edition from Journey Ed:

$150, you get the Flex3C version of the software ($20,000 retail value), help files and one of the above books on CD with training files in SE format. Pro/e was the first, and for a while, the only major player in solids modelling, with a Student Edition of the program plus a longstanding, comprehensive training program accessible from the SE. On your own PC, with complete autonomy, you have full access to the entire power of Pro/ENGINEER design software. And most PCs, with a decent, OpenGL-compatible graphics card, can do the job.
PTC University:

't underestimate learning it straight "from the horses mouth". Don't know what it takes to sign up for this, probably a year's maintenance/support agreement, paid in advance. Still, if you've got it, this is a valuable resource: what you'd get in a class, no travel involved, all you need is a terminal with pro: complete, comprehensive, convenient. Sit at home and learn from PTC. I think this is extremely cool. Just like their webcasts, 'How to' and 'Tips and Tricks' sessions.
PTC offers, directly, and indirectly supports, more educational and training opportunities than any other corporation on earth. The user community lags pitifully behind; not much in the way of free, user developed tutorials and training resources available out there. I've heard of some university stuff; also, some stuff on websites, but most is out of date, scattered, fragmentary, partial elements of a comprehensive training program, and, of this, the community offers nothing.
