Esprit, a provider of CAM software for CNC programming, optimization and simulation, launched an on-demand training platform, the Esprit Learning Center. Traditionally, Esprit’s applications engineers lead in-person trainings in Esprit offices and on-site at customer facilities. Unfortunately, not everyone who needs software training has the resources to travel to an Esprit office.
To support customers throughout the pandemic, Esprit began conducting instructor-led, online training sessions in early 2020. According to the company, the response was overwhelmingly positive. To further satisfy users’ growing need for high-quality online training, Esprit created the Esprit Learning Center.
The Esprit Learning Center is an online training platform with on-demand, self-paced training courses created specifically for Esprit CAM programmers. The first learning paths to be released are “New User Milling,” “New User Turning” and “New User Mill-Turn.” Each learning path includes five to seven training courses that guide users through several different machine models and part models to introduce different machining processes in Esprit.
The online learning paths are designed to replicate what students can learn from an on-site training class. Users may take the course anywhere, any time. Esprit customers can learn at their own pace, while saving the time and cost associated with traveling. Each learning path also comes with one Esprit student license for each learner, so users can take the courses at home or in their free time, without interrupting their daily programming or production work.
“Esprit Learning Center gives us the exact learning experience that we’ve been looking for. The courses are very thorough, wasting no time getting to the point. Having all the supplied files and models within the course window makes access quick and convenient,” says Scott Hornbeak, programmer at Cassavant Machining. “This online training will not only make it easier for existing Esprit users to transition to the new Esprit—it will also help our new programmers rapidly get familiar with Esprit, without the need to travel to a training site.”
