Visible Edge was instrumental in guiding me through a change in my career. We met, came up with an education plan for Data Analytics that supported me through the entire curriculum. My instructor Scott Wickett kept me informed and on task, as I went through my courses. I was able to complete Tableau, Python, and Pandas in a relatively short… time before I was offered employment. Taking these courses in Data Analytics allowed me to land this job. Seeing that I still have two courses to take, Visible Edge will continue to be flexible and allow me to finish the courses while I work full-time. I highly recommend Visible Edge to anyone looking to advance their career. Read more “”Tina FitzGerald

I never feel like I’m anything but the most important person there.… I’ve learned so much and it’s all because of their dedication to this trade. You’re the best!! Read more “”James C.
I am an older worker who did not grow up with computers. I supervised colleagues in my office who did the computer drafting, but never had the computer skills myself to help with the production of drawings. Visible Edge has provided both the preliminary and advanced courses in REVIT to help me catch up with the office. VEI also had… the flexibility to extend my program when needed so that I could complete advanced courses and a portfolio. With my thanks & appreciation, Allan Sifferlen. Read more “”Allan Sifferlen
I am extremely happy with my choice of Visible Edge for my Mechanical Design Applications Specialist program. I have learned more through them than in any other institution in the last 10 years, and I am always looking for professional development programs. The resources are easy to use and the knowledge channels are very good. When I came across VEI’s… website I was impressed by how easy it was to navigate and how modern it looked. A representative was quickly available, I chatted with her through the prompted chat session’s window, and then shared my contact info. The next day, the Director of Student Services contacted me (that was quick) and I liked how professional and helpful he was. We set up an appointment and after my visit I was convinced that It was going to be a good experience because the training center was well organized, the atmosphere was focus driven, the technology available was excellent (It was even upgraded during my time there, now it is outstanding) and the instructor was friendly. I couldn’t be more right. My learning program was put together in a timely manner; It was all what I was looking for. I started my training and I completed it at my own pace; I even had the opportunity to learn more of what I was there for and VE was willing to provide it without any extra cost. What I like most about it is that everyone in the VE team, from the President to the instructor makes you feel part of the team and they are willing to help and provide the assistance you’re looking for. Everyone welcomes you and is very professional. Read more “”Jairo Fortuna Hernandez

This training is a must for any recent graduate who wants to improve his or her design skills. I’m a recent graduate with a degree in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. I wanted to learn how to use design software other than the ones I’m accustomed to using from school and internships. With some research, I found Visible Edge offered multiple… courses on PTC Creo. I found the training to be excellent. The self-paced training let me go through the course material at a suitable pace. My instructor Cam, was great in teaching me about the things I got stuck on. Overall, the combination of learning the material at your own pace and being able to have an instructor on-site was the most beneficial training experience I have ever had. It gives you the opportunity to go through the material you are already comfortable with a bit quicker while taking more time on modules that are less familiar, creating a catered learning experience. I highly recommend receiving training at Visible Edge and I will be definitely looking into more courses they have to offer for myself. Read more “”Mert Toprak
As a recent graduate I was looking for additional learning to supplement my degree. I started with an introductory course in PTC Creo and my experience exceeded expectations. The course material was well organized and clear cut. I was able to set my own pace and have any question I had answered. Cam, the in-office instructor was extremely helpful as… well as approachable. The facility was beautiful and equipped with all the tools I needed to use and understand the software. I will be looking into additional courses offered. Read more “”Keri Rickman
In the time spent at VE, the support and experience I gained was amazing. I can’t say enough about the people @VE. I tell everyone about the company.

I highly recommend Visible Edge, Inc. for any training programs they offer! Took courses in CREO, MS Project, Lean Six Sigma, and PMP certification there. The PMP training in particular was great because it covered all of the PMBOK in a way that allowed me to master the content and pass the PMP exam on the first try.Mike Pisani
I am a Biomedical engineer who currently works full-time. I strongly believe that I was able to get a job out of college much more quickly due to my certifications that I received through my training at Visible Edge. I was concerned about not being able to complete training due to my busy schedule, but with VE, it was extremely… easy. Their flexible scheduling and remote training option allowed me to train wherever and whenever. I completed the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification in just a couple weeks from the comfort of my own home. I also trained in Solidworks and the prep/practice that VE provided made it so easy to pass the CSWA test! I would definitely recommend VE and their services to whoever is considering. They truly offer a great experience and make everything as easy as possible for you. The instructors were so helpful and they genuinely cared about my learning experience. I will rely on VE for all of my training in the future. Read more “”Stephanie
