GibbsCAM Essentials – Live Online

Each course consists of 8 morning classes, Tuesday through Friday for two weeks.


We show how to harness the power of GibbsCAM. Showing how to generate productive machining strategies while adopting best practice skills is what our training is all about. Proven curriculum will be presented by exceptional instructors. The live online environment allows students to ask questions which will be addressed quickly and clearly. With no travel requirements participants can literally be anywhere, at work or perhaps in the comfort of their own home. Temporary GibbsCAM licenses will be provided at no extra cost. CAM training is known to be a great investment. The benefits will begin immediately and continue well after the course has paid for itself.

Is The Training Described Above Video Training?

No, the training described above is on-line training with live instructors. It is not video training such as Cognus. It is much closer to classroom training.

Can You Provide More Information About Cognus Video Training?

Cognus on-line video training is an excellent supplement to our courses. We recommend all GibbsCAM beginner users to take the free course which can be found at the following link:

For higher-level course material, the Cognus Premium Package covers a wide range of topics and is available at the following link:
Pricing for the Premium Package has been reduced temporarily from $495 to $295.

We have found that the more complex the material is, the better suited it is to live training. That is the reason we are offering the live online courses using Discord.
