Excellent! Everything (pace, detail, content) were just right, even for a beginner.

Nicely done!  

"I enjoyed the training very much. I had never really used Femap before so the first day it felt almost like I was trying to drink from a fire hose. By the end of the week though I could do the modeling required for my work. I also felt much more confident in my understanding of finite element in general and in my ability to model in Femap."

"…[Applied CAx and Predictive Engineering] have put a significant amount of effort into their training courses. The format for the training was ideal. Add this to the high level of support from George and Adrian, and you have all of the tools needed for success. I appreciate their consistent level of concern for quality work."

Gabriel Gehrig, P.E.,
Structural Engineer

"...The material is well thought out, easy to follow and loaded with information. You have clearly spent an enormous amount of time generating quality exercises that we can follow and everyone will learn from. My confidence and knowledge about the FEA process and how productive FEMAP can be for engineering has increased by a factor of 10. All your hard work and dedication to FEMAP users is priceless."

General comments?  
It felt more repetitive towards the last couple days,. I could follow most of the workshops with the instructor, and didn't need as much time on my own. Overall, a very helpful course.

For the last day it would have been nice to have a little longer for each example.

"I took the FEMAP training course with Adrian Jensen, what a great teacher.  I took the Introductory, advanced, and API programming course with him.  I must say, as an experienced user, I gained a lot of information from every class including the introductory class.  There are always new things to discover in FEMAP, and learning how to use them properly, how to check your model properly.  This has been the best training course I have ever taken...
