JBDC hosts International Expert for Computer-Aided Design Workshop
Train-the-Trainer session will upgrade design resources for Jamaican furniture industry
In a thrust to upgrade the design skills of local furniture manufacturers, the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC) is hosting a three-day workshop for trainers under the Furniture Jamaica Project through which it will introduce computer-aided design techniques.
Robert Berry, Trainer, Consultant and Owner of CADCourse Software Training in California, is in Jamaica to deliver the hands-on intensive sessions which will cover the various methodologies involved in creating two- and three-dimensional drawings utilizing TurboCAD. Three-dimensional modeling with the software will segue into practical hands-on training utilizing real-life examples based on the participants’ unique experiences and requirements.
Some ten individuals representing the furniture industry, HEART Trust/NTA, the Ministry of Education and JBDC‘s Engineering and Design teams, who have prior working knowledge of Computer-Aided Design software such as AutoCAD and are registered as Technical Service Providers (TSPs) with JBDC will participate. As TSPs, these individuals will deliver training and direct design services to support island-wide Design Clinics which JBDC will shortly roll out to Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) under the Furniture Jamaica Project.
Robert Berry has over 18 years experience teaching TurboCAD and international experience which spans South Africa, Russia, Germany, England, France and Australia. He has successfully directed the international development of multiple versions of the programme as well as created and presented training and sales seminars worldwide. His clients include Boeing, Rio Tinto, The Blue Man Group, Houston Power and Light, the U.S. Department of Housing and the United States Air Force.
