CONCORD, MA - Extending a hand to waves of displaced designers and engineers, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. (DS SolidWorks) has activated a program to give these potential employees a chance to learn valuable new career skills in 3-D computer-aided design (CAD).

Called the SolidWorks Engineering Stimulus Package and first announced at SolidWorks World 2009 in February, the program gives free SolidWorks 3-D CAD software licenses, training videos and tutorials, networking, certification, and potential job leads to any job seeker living in the United States or Canada.

Any US or Canadian resident is eligible for the SolidWorks Engineering Stimulus Package. DS SolidWorks will also expand this program to other geographical regions in coming months.

SolidWorks is the single most requested 3D CAD technology experience on employment sites such as Monster.com and Aerotek. Individuals will be able to achieve basic proficiency within 90 days and have a fair opportunity to pass a CSWA test. DS SolidWorks offered a similar retraining program in from 2002 to 2007, which attracted more than 16,000 users. To support the new offering, more than half of SolidWorks’ North American VARs have agreed to offer hands-on test drives, and many of them will offer advanced training options as well.
