Torchmate Online Training Sessions Available Here
Here is a link to the first of what we expect will be many online training sessions about using Torchmate Products. This first one contains the basics of using the TorchmateCAD program to draw parts. As we do more of these online webinars, we will continue to add the links here:
Webinar #1 TorchmateCAD Basic Training
Webinar #2 Welding, Node Editing and Scanning
Webinar #3 Various Drawing Techniques and Common Drawing Questions
The above webinars build on each other, so you are going to want to watch them in order. That way you can get the most out of them.
We are hiring! Email your resume to our Human Resources Manager at email@example.com and ask about openings.
