Precision Learning
Precision Learning in the Classroom
PTC University uses the Precision Learning methodology to develop effective, comprehensive class material that will improve the productivity of both individuals and organizations. PTC then teaches using the proven instructional design principal of Tell Me, Show Me, Let Me Do: Topics are introduced through a short presentation, highlighting the key concepts. These key concepts are then reinforced by seeing them applied in the software application. You then apply the concepts through structured exercises.

Precision Learning After the Class

Each student that enrolls in a PTC class has a PTC University eLearning account. This account will be automatically created if you do not already have one. A Pro/FICIENCY assessment from the course content that generates a Recommended Learning Report based on your results. A Web-based training version of the course, based on the same instructional approach of lecture, demonstration, and exercise. The Recommended Learning Report will link directly to sections of this training that you may want to review. Please note that Web-based training may not be available in all languages. The Web-based training is available in your account for one year after the live class.

At the end of the class, you will either take a Pro/FICIENCY assessment via your PTC University eLearning account, or your instructor will provide training on how to do this after the class.

After the course, a Pro/FICIENCY assessment is provided to enable you to assess your understanding of the materials. The assessment results will also identify the class topics that require further review.

Precision Learning Recommendations


PTC uses a role-based training approach. The roles and the associated training are graphically displayed in a curriculum map. Curriculum maps are available for numerous PTC products and versions in the training section of our Web site at http://www.ptc.com/services/edserv/learning/paths/index.htm.

Fo r

Please note that a localized map may not be available in every language and that the map above is partial and for illustration purposes only. Before the end of the class, your instructor will review the map corresponding to the course you are taking. This review, along with instructor recommendations, should give you some ideas for additional training that corresponds to your role and job functions.

Next, you need to calculate the surface area of the cylinder to confirm the proper thermal cooling. Also, the crankshaft's center of gravity needs to be set along the axis of rotation. Finally, you need to check the engine assembly for interferences between its components. Close Window Analysis\Models Task 1: Erase Not Displayed FUEL_TANK.PRT
