COADE Updates Video Training Course for CADWorx Plant Professional with Metric Capabilities and Other Enhancements

HOUSTON—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 1, 2008— COADE announced today an updated edition of its COADE Video Training Course for CADWorx Plant Professional. This COADE-approved video course has been revised to take into account the latest functionality of AutoCAD 2009 and CADWorx Plant Professional 2009. Also, for the first time, it is adapted to the metric format.

All major aspects of using, customizing and mastering CADWorx Plant Professional are addressed in this latest version, a comprehensive training program that contains five full days of course content, the same basic content as the training classes delivered by COADE experts across the globe. It has a step-by-step workbook designed to allow users to learn plant modeling and design skills at their own pace. The videos cover all aspects of 3D Plant design including piping, equipment and steelwork modeling; component placement, annotation, and modeling; piping specification generation; effective use of XRefs; bills of material production; leveraging databases and Isogen and much more.

“This metric-enabled version of the COADE Video Training Course for CADWorx Plant Professional now opens up the rest of the world to the benefits of training on this powerful tool,” explained David Diehl, VP Customer Experience. The latest update provides the novice and experienced user with a set of standardized skills, best practices and how-to methods for improving their efficiency and throughput when using the software. It is also a convenient alternative to refresher courses. “Some key benefits of the training videos are the flexibility and ease-of-use that the videos allow and the savings they will enjoy compared to the expense of traveling to a training center for a five-day course,” Diehl added. “After completing the key parts of these videos, the user should be able to begin using CADWorx Plant Professional for modeling the process facilities and modular process systems that our users typically create, all in 3D along with their associated piping, steel, equipment and components.”
