Launching in April 2009, ModernTech Mechanical’s Layoff Payoff program will run through the end of June 2009.

Registrants will receive a free 90-day trial of SolidWorks Standard and SolidWorks eDrawings software compliments of SolidWorks, and a 3 hour hands-on test drive training session hosted at one of ModernTech Mechanical’s locations across the Southeast. Upon completion of and passing an exam, attendees will also receive a CSWA certificate.

Candidates must additionally provide proof of unemployment in the form of a current statement of unemployment benefits.
