10 Out Of 10 – Gerber Advanced 2-Day Course

Last Saturday (8th June 2019) learners completed the final instalment of their Follow-On Gerber Advanced course. Taught by Gerber tutor Ben Cooper, the learners got into the nitty-gritty depths of the Pattern Design and Explorer. Over the 2-day course learners could:

  • Work through new sketches with loads of amendments
  • Create Models and Marker making
  • Send patterns – Learn how to convert, zip and export patterns ready to email
  • Import patterns from other systems (Lectra, DXF etc)
  • Make new storage areas
  • Cover in depth – how to set-up personal work space, export and import PDS settings
  • And good practices explained – understanding and choosing how to autosave to desired storage area
  • How to deal with known Gerber issues and how to deal with crashes

Gerber tutor Ben Cooper has a grounding of over 25 years experience in fashion and is currently a Senior Pattern Cutter at Karen Millen and CAD manager for their Atelier.

Feedback included: “Great course to learn in depth the functions we use everyday and manage to fix problems we stumble upon. Really like the fact the tutor has a real work life apart from tutoring to ensure we know when things/errors happen why they do and how/when to use the fixer up.” – Tania 10 out of 10

“I have learned lots about working with Gerber VII and refreshed my Gerber knowledge after quite some time. We had a nice, experienced teacher, working in the industry. I had a great time learning and understanding the latest version.”– Chamil
