Try PTC eLearning Free

PTC is offering 30-day free trials of the eLearning Libraries

Updated: 2013 – the free trial is no longer available

If you don’t already have a license for PTC’s eLearning library, you can try out the service for free for 30-days. We always recommend that our customers get at least one copy. It’s inexpensive, and gives you hundreds of hours of video — recorded copies of the certified courses along with course materials (and tests!)  You can watch the material as often as you want. You even get upgraded materials and courseware as long as you’re on active maintenance for the eLearning library.

And you never even need to leave your office.

The courses are broken down into 1-hour segments, so you can watch at your convenience and interleave your learning with your work.

It’s a great resource if you’re an Arbortext user or developer. Topics span the gamut: from getting started to advanced topics. It’s easy to get started, pick up a new skill, and apply it right away.

The full library has over 6000 hours of online training courses available at your fingertips.

  •  Globally available 24/7/365
  • Short, easy to absorb modules get you what you need quickly
  • Powered by PTC University Precision LMS – our robust learning management system
  • Available for your favorite PTC products, such as Creo, Creo Elements/Direct, Mathcad, Windchill & Windchill Quality Solutions, and Arbortext

If you’re interested in trying it out, pop on over to the sign-up page: (No longer available).

And when you’ve finished your lecture courses and need to talk to your TA, head on over to the Advisory Line to get your questions answered. That’s what it’s for; because, after all, you can’t ask questions of a video. If you’re already an Advisory line subscriber, you might find your answer in our membership forums and application engineer database. We’ve got lots of articles that augment the training material already there. And, if you’re not already a member, sign up!

Hear it from someone else: We’re a favorite resource!


Advisory Line Can Get You Through a Tough Spot

Today we’re excited to announce the launch of the Single-Sourcing Solutions Advisory Line. The Advisory Line is designed to help resolve issues for customers who are facing tight time lines or who may have limited resources.

We wanted to provide our customers with a scalable solution that would fit their needs on demand. We think that the Advisory Line is the best way to provide just the right amount of support for customers right when they need it.

Think of it as mini-consulting.

The service is easy to use. Anyone can use the service. Current customers and members of our Mastermind Groups receive 45 free minutes per month and a discounted rate for additional time as well as many other benefits.

The service covers a broad array of topics and tools. We’ve leveraged the knowledge of our staff and combined it with with experts from nearly every PTC product to provide a comprehensive resource all in one place.

Here is a list of some of the topics our expert advisors can help you with:

  • Arbortext
  • Arbortext for Aerospace and Defense, Milspec authoring and publishing
  • Arbortext Content Manager & Windchill integration
  • Antenna House
  • DITA authoring, legacy data conversion, best practices
  • XSL, XSL-FO, XQuery, and other XML Processing Technology

Personally, I am excited to be able to expand our services this way. Our customers are in the SMB market space. As such, they often lack the resources and the budget required for larger consulting projects. The Advisory Line is a great way to give you the support you need to get through.
