Blended Learning divides the training between an online FARO Academy course that customers are expected to take before attending in-person instructor led training. See the illustration below:
Enhancing Customer Training through Blended Learning
In today's dynamic business landscape, effective customer training is paramount to ensuring product understanding, user satisfaction, and overall success. Blended learning, a combination of traditional classroom methods and online resources, has emerged as a powerful strategy to optimize customer training.
Flexible Learning Styles
Blended learning accommodates diverse learning styles, allowing customers to engage with content at their own pace. This flexibility caters to different learning preferences, ensuring a more personalized and effective training experience (Garrison & Vaughan, 2008).
Integrating online components reduces the need for extensive in-person training sessions, cutting down on travel and accommodation expenses. This cost-effective approach is particularly advantageous for organizations with a geographically dispersed customer base (Bonk & Graham, 2006).
Online resources provide customers with 24/7 access to training materials, enabling them to revisit content as needed. This accessibility fosters continuous learning and ongoing skill development, contributing to long-term customer success (Means et al., 2013).
Interactive Learning Opportunities
Blended learning allows for the incorporation of interactive elements such as quizzes, simulations, and discussion forums. These features enhance engagement and knowledge retention by promoting active participation in the learning process (Clark & Mayer, 2016).

FARO RevEng is a user-friendly 3D point cloud capture, mesh generation and advanced editing software solution that offers an array of powerful tools for processing mesh models quickly and efficiently. RevEng helps users to create high-quality 3D mesh models as well as prepare the models for downstream CAD development. Combined with FARO’s portfolio of 3D scanning products, users are able to easily capture and edit meshes in color to create the perfect model or CAD-ready file.
Data ranging from high-resolution color point clouds to simple mesh files can be transformed into detailed meshes, providing more insight into the design, composition and visual differentiation between materials and textures. This course will cover the interface and typical workflow options to bring you from scan to mesh in FARO RevEng.
The Visual Inspect Up and Running course demonstrates the function of Visual Inspect, including unboxing, registering the software, importing assets, navigating the user interface and scanning a part. Upon completing this course, you will be able to set up and use your Visual Inspect system.
This course demonstrates reverse engineering a part, from scanning to exporting as a CAD model.
This concise online training course will review important enhancements to FARO's Service Plans which were effective on April 1st, 2022. The total amount of time to complete this training is approximately 30 minutes.
BuildIT Projector is a software by FARO that allows you to create projection plans and run them with FARO TracerM and TracerSI. This course covers all aspects of the software to allow you to make the most out of your hardware. We will start with the basics, like importing your model and using it to define how to align your projector to it and what lines to project. We will then cover more advanced workflows such as working with multiple tracers (also known as an array), and a little bit on how to work with a TracerSI imaging functionalities for feature-based alignment and in-process verification.
At the end, there’s a simple 5-question quiz to have a sense of your understanding of the material. Once the course is completed, you should be able to create and run projection jobs with your own parts and CAD, whether they are 3D surfaces or 2D drawings.
No matter what your training need, your schedule, or your specialty, FARO is here to be your silent partner, giving you the confidence and the experience you need to do your job faster, better, and safer.
