announced the PTC Certified Professional Program, a comprehensive testing
program that validates the skills of PTC Creo users based on the latest release
–Creo 2. 
ATCs would provide the
high quality training services on PTC Creo software
through In-centre training classes. On successful completion of the program,
student would go for the certification test designed and developed by PTC.

discussing, John D Stuart said “We want to set a new standard of excellence for
using PTC Creo for product design and development in India. With our ATC
partners we would provide world class training, material, methodology and

I think this
is very good initiative by PTC, thousands of engineering students undergo
training on various CAD products throughout India. Having a quality course
content, trained instructor and the latest tools would help students to equip him
with the right skills.

“Our motive
behind starting the ATCs in India is to bridge the gap between opportunities
and skills by bringing engineering students and industry closer to prepare
every engineering student for a competitive, global industry” Said John D
Stuart “We have target of training around 8000+ engineering students on Creo 2 this
year” adds Eduarda Camacho


The industry
always complains about the lack of required skills in the fresh engineering
graduates. Such, well designed programs would definitely play a vital role to
benefit both Industry as well as students. Using tool to its optimum would
simulate the innovations in new product development and save time and cost on
the product development.  Higher
proficiency in using Creo would help
students to land into good jobs in India and abroad as well.

Another ATC
partner said that “Creo is one of the best parametric tools, once students are
trained on it. They can easily learn and understand any other parametric tool
if requires”  

“I am very delighted
with the growth and quality of the Authorized Training Center (ATC) program in
India. We are looking forward to implement similar certification program
through ATC partners in US and Europe in future”
