QTE's Training Philosophy

We provide you and your team with specific curriculum designed by our internal experts and experienced machinists. Our training programs are designed for you to learn the core concepts through live instruction, student exercises, and proficiency tests. Upon completion of our classes, students have been exposed to the broad curriculum to see the full process but given ample opportunity to perform detail tasks to return to work and increase productivity. Our classes are taught in state of the art facilities with new equipment and resources to ensure a positive distraction free learning environment. We are confident in our student's success, and we offer a guarantee on our training.

Mastercam All-Inclusive Training Program (MAIT)

QTE is committed to igniting American manufacturing and as a result we have created the Mastercam All-Inclusive Training Program. Many of our customers are dealing with the skills gap and struggling to find talent to keep their machines running efficiently. With the MAIT, companies are able to enroll any employees, to any scheduled training classes, in any of our locations! This is an industry first! If you hire new employees or want to cycle different people through the class, they are all eligible under this program!

Mill 2D Class Overview

This 3-day hands on course is delivered live in one of the QTE training facilities or virtual. It is the base level class for our Mastercam training due to material covered regarding the Mastercam interface, general drawing and modeling techniques and a deeper discussion of Mastercam and machining basics. The focus is on manipulation of geometry and generation of 2D mill toolpaths.

Students are given the fundamentals to return to work and be able to program related parts effectively. At the end of the class students are given a skills test that comprehensively covers the lessons of the class.

Day 1 focuses on the interface, geometry, and modeling basics in Mastercam. Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS users can attend this first day or they can arrive for the toolpath generation lessons on days 2 and 3. Familiarity with the SOLIDWORKS interface is a prerequisite for those attending for Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS. All three days are required for stand alone Mastercam programmers.

Mastercam for SolidWorks Class Overview

QTE has integrated the Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS curriculum into all training classes. At the time of registration, indicate that you are attending for the Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS platform. The only curriculum difference is in our Mill 2D Machining class, the Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS students are not required to attend the first day as we go through the stand-alone Mastercam interface and its geometry and model creation tools. Day 2-3 of this class cover the toolpathing. All other classes incorporate Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS throughout.

Note: We do not teach SOLIDWORKS. Knowledge of relevant SOLIDWORKS tools and features is a pre-requisite to attending a QTE integrated class.

Verisurf Inspection Class Overview

This 2-day hands on course is designed to provide the core training to utilize the 3 step inspection process of Align, Inspect, Report within Verisurf. Participants will be led by live instruction and complete exercises to solidify the concepts taught. Participants are given opportunities to inspect their own parts or utilize our sample parts within the exercises. Classes are scheduled on a per company basis due the nature of inspection and the related equipment necessary for properly training students. We strongly recommend limiting two participates to an inspection device to provide adequate time for the lab exercises.

A one day add-on course is available for the Verisurf Reverse engineering module. Please contact us for more details
