    Hello there...

    Just in case some of you don't know is that we offer FREE (free.99) CAD training at the Reno production facility. It is a hands-on basic walk-through of the CAD software and operation of the machine. We provide the training, tour of the facility along with lunch for both days. The only thing you are responsible for is air/hotel arrangements, after training entertainment, and transportation to/from the facility.
    If you are interested in checking it out go to this link and see the agenda. Plus you can see the dates and book online!

    http://torchmate.com/news/free-cad-seminar

    Because of the popularity along with demand we have increased the number of classes from 11 in 2016 to 17 in 2017. WHOA!!!
    Also our new training center allows us to be able to accommodate more people along with better learning environment.
    So if you are thinking of getting a machine, just got a machine, or an experienced operator looking for a CAD refresher this is a good place to start.

    If you have any other questions or need to get the fine print (which there is none) email me at: CADTRAINING@lincolnelectric.com

    Hope to see you here.

    Chad

    If anyone is undecided about whether or not this course is worth the time, money, effort to go out to Reno and spend the couple days in the classes, my experience was worth more than the costs associated with going!!! Chad does a tremendous job of covering everything from a2z, hands on experience, and getting to see the whole process and team that is behind our purchases from torchmate! You can count on having a good vast knowledge of running your torchmate effectively and efficiently. Even though I had general knowledge of my machine and the training course is a good starting course, there was so much information that made me a better, more efficient operator! On a side note there is alot of things to do and see when your done with class!

    This experience was great. I learned a lot, and would consider going again. The advanced class will be on my agenda

    Do you do any classes on the east coast? I thought I read somewhere that you held them out this way at least in the past. Thanks.

    We do not have a traveling road show for the TMCAD training through us. Might be a good idea in the future but I would assume we would have to charge a per seat fee for it.

    Ok ... because everyone wants to spend more time on the machines along with quality time with me starting in August we are moving to a 2 day (3rd day optional) Wednesday to Friday schedule for the Basic CAD training. This is for people who need more time either with the CAD or hands-on machine time. We will go over consumables, troubleshooting CAD/machine, and add a few more projects to cover!

    Are you up for it?
