Ensuring retailers and designers get the most out of the latest design software technology, Virtual Worlds has launched a new academy, offering in-person and online training to its network of customers.

The Virtual Worlds Academy offers training sessions tailored to the differing needs of the candidates – from small family businesses wanting to use Virtual Worlds to produce high-quality renders quickly, to showrooms that deal with high volumes and need fast design tricks and manufacturers looking for basic training to see how their products are displayed in the software.

Three levels of training are available, from beginner to experienced user, with each session designed to enable Virtual Worlds customers to build up their knowledge of using the software gradually, coming away with a host of tips and tricks to enable them to create designs faster and maximise the potential of investing in the market-leading 3D and 4D design technology. Retailers also learn how to use Virtual Worlds to upsell clients, so that each completed sale generates the best possible margin.

Training can be delivered to groups of up to 10 people, either at the Virtual Worlds head office in Milton Keynes or on site, with 1to1 online training sessions also available.

Kick-starting the Academy, Virtual Worlds has launched VW Academy shorts, a series of free online sessions focusing on a different topic each week. Each sessions lasts just 30 minutes, providing retailers with the perfect way to enhance their Virtual Worlds knowledge during a coffee break.

Nathan MacLean, managing director of Virtual Worlds, comments: “To really get the best out of the latest design software, even the most seasoned of designers should have some form of regular training at least once a year, hence the launch of the Virtual Worlds Academy.

“Not only will this mean they can experience new features of the software and ensure they are up to date with the best features of the system, it will make otherwise time-consuming procedures in CAD a thing of the past, so a designer’s time can be better spent on the most valuable aspects of the job.”
