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.
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.
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.

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.
As part of the class, you receive additional content in your account:
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.

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.

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.
