New User - Best Initial Training?

I have a toolmaker who will be spending 1 hour per day with me to Learn SolidWorks.


He has zero CAD or CAM experience. Never touched it.

He has limited computer/Windows experience, he just uses his phone for everything.

He is a brilliant toolmaker.


The boss has agreed to send him to the Essentials class at our VAR. However, He needs to get some time actually using SW before attending class.


He is running thru the Tutorial included with SW2018. I am not fond of this because the way the tutorial works is very different to the workflow I use. (I get it is a teaching tool and needs to show the slow menu heavy way. (I also get it's valuable to learn all of the various ways to accomplish a given task in SW))


What would you recommend in this situation?

Best beginner YouTube? (Yes I can Google it but which of the "About 520,000 results" would you recommend?)



Thank you all.
