MARCH 26--SolidWorks Corporation (Concord, MA; www.solidworks.com) has unveiled the SolidWorks Retraining Program, a computer-aided-design (CAD) industry program to give unemployed design engineers a fresh start. The program provides displaced engineers and designers that have previous CAD experience with a free six-month license of SolidWorks software to hone their skills.

"This is an excellent opportunity for SolidWorks and its reseller channel to provide engineers with the time, resources, and state-of-the-art skills that will help them re-enter the job market," said David Darbyshire, vice president of Microsolid Solutions, a SolidWorks reseller. "SolidWorks has set the standard for mainstream 3-D CAD technology that shortens design time and the time it takes to get products to market. Being proficient in SolidWorks gives job applicants a leg up in their searches because those are the skills employers are looking for."

SolidWorks will work with unemployment agencies, VARs, and educational institutions to identify displaced engineers interested in taking advantage of the program. Engineers and designers with previous CAD experience who want to learn SolidWorks must fill out an application to determine eligibility.
