Some key advantages of concept3D training:

  •     ASLA and AIA accredited training of 6 credits per day
  •     Lowest cost per session with group and individual discounts
  •     An extra 'bonus hour' of training per session to cover "any and all things 3D and Google Earth(TM)"
  •     A trained team with real world experience across multiple markets and an array of tools beyond course 'basics'
  •     A better than virtual experience with post training email support

Based on feedback from its 2009 kickoff training in Minneapolis (concept3D's trainers have trained over 2,000 professionals), concept3D continues to offer valuable hands-on training as one Architect-trainee stated, "If you try to learn yourself you get stuck, not knowing where to look for help and time is wasted. I learned at least five tricks that will save me hours a week. concept3D understands the applications in and out and the training was well worth my time." And as Larry Weeks of CommArts stated, "concept3D is clearly an authority in this space."
