Training you can count on.

TEDCF Ships Inventor 2011 Certified Video Course

Springville, CA, August 26, 2010 – TEDCF Publishing, an Autodesk Authorized Publisher of multi-media courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Autodesk Inventor 2011: Solid Modeling, the first in a series of courses.

While teaching you how to apply effective modeling techniques, author David Melvin, PE shows you sound processes that maximize your productivity and the quality of your work. Step-by-step instruction is presented in short multi-media movies that show you how to use all of the commands associated with solid modeling.

This new release has a newly designed interface, which allows users to adjust the playback speed and view the lessons in full-screen. Another change is the click-able slider, making it easier to skip through or rewind each lesson.

“Our courses have improved over the years because our customers let us know what they need, said Melvin. “We used to think that when some customers said the training was too fast and an equal number of customers said the training was too slow, that most customers would consider the speed to be just right. Now that they can adjust the speed all of our customers can say the speed is just right. Being able to adjust the speed allows you to review lessons at a faster pace or slow the lessons down to make sure you understand what is being taught. It keeps getting better every year.”
