Instructors complete certification process and showcase the power of blending classroom and workplace learning with certification
Paris, France and Detroit, Mich., USA - March 21, 2005 - Dassault Systèmes (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the world’s leading developer of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced that INCAT has completed the highest quality and performance requirements for its PLM education activities and has been awarded the Certified Education Partner (CEP) designation in North America.
“INCAT is the only CEP in both the United States and Europe,” said John Haupt, INCAT education director. “This is a direct result of our more than 15 years of experience delivering industry-leading training to support the Dassault Systèmes portfolio of PLM products. INCAT’s instructors combine educational and consultative skills to deliver PLM training that is pragmatic and client-centric. Their support of the student extends beyond the classroom, to at-elbow and shop floor support.
“Our overall expertise and familiarity with the official Dassault Systèmes training materials guarantees that students will get the most out of their training. INCAT can also leverage Dassault Systemes’ full ‘Companion’ e-learning suite and customize education content for individual clients,” Haupt added.
The CEP label is the highest qualification that can be reached by a member of Dassault Systèmes’ Education Partner Program (EPP). The EPP is made up of a growing network of more than 110 companies with 900 teachers in 34 countries that provide education and training on Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA, ENOVIA, and SMARTEAM PLM solutions.
INCAT has demonstrated excellence in deploying Dassault Systèmes’ learning solutions and went through a formal certification process, including a challenging certification process for instructors.
“I was extremely pleased with the quality of CATIA V5 training that my company received at INCAT,” said Tony Hoppenworth, president, Geometric Design. “Each and every class was taught with knowledgeable instructors who use their real world experience to illustrate the best practices required to get the most of my company’s technology investment. INCAT also supplied Geometric Design with exceptional at-elbow mentoring. In a very short time INCAT was able to explain the best approach to create and modify our parts, which consist of complex surface data.”
“INCAT has consistently shown excellence in building adapted learning programs for Dassault Systèmes’ PLM users,” said Xavier Fouger, director, PLM Academy, Dassault Systèmes. “This certification confirms that INCAT is a leading provider of education services in North America”
