TEDCF Ships Inventor 2010 Certified Drafting Course
Springville, CA, July 1, 2009 – TEDCF Publishing, a leading Authorized Autodesk Publisher of interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Autodesk Inventor 2010: 2D Drafting and Customization, the third in a series of certified courses for Autodesk Inventor 2010.
While teaching you how to apply effective drafting techniques, author David Melvin, PE explains how to customize drawings, templates, and styles. Step-by-step lessons are presented in short fully animated movies that show you how to work productively in the drawing environment.
The Lesson Player, shown above, fills a 1024 X 768 screen. It automatically tracks your progress, so all you need is a computer with speakers and a CD Drive, and the Lesson Player does the rest.

- Large Screen Display

- Automatic Course Layout – The course starts with basic concepts and builds to more advanced concepts.
- Automatic Book Marking – The course automatically opens on the last viewed lesson.

- Volume Slider Control – Adjust the volume for your comfort.

“I think this is one of our best courses.” said David Melvin, PE, author of the course. “It has 20% more lessons than the 2009 course, but it’s 20 minutes shorter. It’s shorter because we’ve improved the speed and clarity of the lessons. This means that our customers can learn more in less time, which is what they need, fast high quality training that doesn’t keep them from getting their work done. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
TEDCF’s customers are amply satisfied with the power of this course, as indicated from a marketing study conducted by TEDCF Publishing. While the courses significantly helped new Inventor users quickly get up to speed, the study shows that those already familiar with Inventor experienced as much as a 40% increase in productivity.
