[The course] presents users with realistic challenges that will help them learn and retain essential skills.
(Vocus/PRWEB) February 17, 2011
Online training provider Infinite Skills Inc. is now offering a complete Bentley MicroStation V8i tutorial video course. Targeted toward MicroStation novices, the included video tutorials are meant to help beginning CAD users as well as more experienced professionals who have experience with other software. The MicroStation Training includes lessons on the software interface, drawing and geometric tools, annotation functionality and more.
“Releasing a MicroStation training course is just one more way we can support our professional customer base,” said Mike Spaulding, president of Infinite Skills. “This is a powerful piece of software used by engineers and designers around the world, and we’re glad we can offer people an affordable and effective way to learn.”
Leading MicroStation author and trainer Peter Mann narrates each lesson in the video series, which runs 11 hours in total length. Mann draws from his experience as an educator and end-user to teach with relevant examples that are intended to build users’ confidence level and present them with realistic challenges that will help them learn and retain necessary skills.
By first teaching users about the software interface and Accudraw functionality, the MicroStation tutorials are designed to instill a baseline understanding of how the program works. Users then learn how to incorporate coordinates, geometric objects and shapes and use Smartline settings to quickly populate their project with usable content. Next, the training shows how to use symbols, advanced selections, and annotations to add relevant data and context to their projects, before moving to advanced aspects of accurate dimensioning for linear and angular constraints. Finally the Bentley MicroStation tutorial videos show the viewer how to properly plot and print their designs to share with colleagues and clients.
“The goal of the MicroStation training is to not only present helpful lessons in a logical order, but also an easily accessible resource that users can refer back to any time they want,” said Spaulding.
Files are included with the training so that viewers can follow the exact demonstrations presented within the tutorials. The complete Bentley MicroStation V8i Training Video package is available on DVD-ROM and as an instant digital download from the Infinite Skills website. Both versions currently retail for $99.95 and are available to customers worldwide. Further information and free sample lessons can be found on the MicroStation tutorial product page:
