NX User Training
Sherpa Design offers customized training both in our classroom and onsite at your facility with our mobile classroom.
We have developed focused training solutions that address the NX tools your company uses most in addition to
release upgrade and special application classes.
Our experienced instructors have been using UG/NX for more than 12 years (v.10) so we know how the software works and how it has
evolved over the years. We use it in our daily design work so we know it through real world experience. Make sure your NX instructors
have the experience and real-world application background your company will value.
