New Creo and Autodesk Courseware from ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge® Speeds the Transition from Learning to Application

ASCENT adds several new Autodesk Official Training Guides to current line-up, plus develops two new titles

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 28, 2013Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that its courseware division, ASCENT– Center for Technical Knowledge, released several Autodesk Official Training Guides to its Autodesk 2014 courseware line-up. In addition, two brand new courseware titles, Creo Simulate: Structural and Thermal Analysis and Inventor 2014 for Experienced 3D CAD Users, have been added to ASCENT’s curriculum line-up.

In addition to authoring Autodesk Official Training Guides (AOTG), ASCENT also authors and publishes a wide range of training solutions for leading design engineering software including CATIA, Creo and Pro/ENGINEER. ASCENT’s Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes and PTC training guides and eBooks will be on display at the Virginia Engineers Conference on September, 18-19, 2013.

“In addition to keeping pace with new software releases, our team of technical writers are proud to have produced two brand new training guides,” says Paul Burden, director of product development, ASCENT. “We know our training guides and eBooks hit the mark not just from the positive feedback we receive, but because the content created comes directly from listening to participants in our classes, conference presentations and our instructors who are plugged into the industry.”

In fact, teaching a class became the inspiration for one of ASCENT’s latest Autodesk Official Training Guides. In a recent post on the ASCENT blog, Jennifer MacMillan, instructional design projects manager at ASCENT, explains how an introductory Inventor class she was teaching led to the idea of producing the Autodesk Inventor 2014 for Experienced 3D CAD Users training guide. Read Jennifer’s insights in her recent blog post, Accelerated Inventor Introduction Training.
