Everything you need to know about Creo training courses

Posted by Concurrent Engineering on 19-Aug-2022 09:30:00

If you want to learn how to get the most from the engineering industry’s leading CAD software, we’ve got a course for that. Let’s find out more.



Creo from PTC is the industry-leading CAD software that helps you build better products faster and easier. Creo is known for being intuitive and easy to pick up, but sometimes it’s good to have a bit of help to ensure you’re using it to its full potential. That’s why PTC created a wide range of Creo training courses - taught by engineers, for engineers. 


In this article, we’ll answer six of the most frequently asked questions about Creo training courses. Let’s go.


1 - Who can benefit from Creo training courses?


Most of the people who enrol in Creo training courses are design engineers. Many have experience with other CAD platforms but are getting ready to switch to Creo - for a new job, for example. 


However, you could be an experienced Creo user, perhaps on an older version, who needs to brush up on your skills. Or, you could be a team leader trying to evaluate whether Creo is a good choice for your team. Whatever you need, there’s probably a course for it.


2 - What prior knowledge of design do I need?


It depends on what course you take, but there are courses for novices. For example, we don’t expect anyone enrolling in Fundamentals of Modeling 1 to have much modeling experience. You’ll learn the basics, such as the shortcut keys that help you handle the model. Then, you’ll start sketching in Creo.


Start with an introductory course that matches your level of knowledge, then build up to the more advanced instruction. 


3 - Can I get a certification?


You can achieve a professional-level certification if you take the right courses and pass the associated exams. 


You can also earn specialisation badges in courses based around skillsets such as modeling, surfacing and sheet metal. Studying for these badges are great for your all-round CAD knowledge, even if they’re not the areas you usually work in.


4 - Where should I start?


The best place to begin is the Fundamentals courses, culminating in the Fundamentals Certification Exam. It gives you an overview of everything Creo can do. Then, you can choose the best path to further your knowledge.


When you take the Fundamentals Overview course, the first thing you’ll learn is how to get the most from the course, including:

  • The virtual classroom
  • The student guide
  • How to set up your virtual machine


Then, it’s on to basic terminology and design concepts.


5 - I don’t have a license for Creo. Can I still take a course?


Creo course students use a virtual machine for their coursework. It means they can access the Creo application without a personal or business license. 


Instructors can also access your virtual machine to give you personal help when needed, like when an IT department remotely accesses your laptop.


6 - What else will I get out of Creo courses?


We hope that Creo course students will be able to make the most of the CAD platform when they use it in a work situation. Creo is a fantastic solution, packed with capabilities, and we want everyone to be as comfortable with it as possible.
