Course Description

As a CAD user and instructor for over 23 years I have developed a unique method to teach CAD software. A lot of books and courses out there spend the first parts describing every single command and instruction which can leave the student feeling bored and overwhelmed. It is no good learning what a command does if you don't understand why you need to do it.

In any CAD software there are a few basic commands you use all the time and many that you don't need to know in order to get started. I believe in teaching these basic actions and getting the student creating drawings straight away. Using the type of drawings you may be asked to create or amend in a real working environment gives the student the confidence to then use what they have learned to create their own designs. More advanced techniques can then be taught as they progress which show the student why they are being used in the various situations. 

I have used this method successfully to teach many students and hope to teach you the same way. This course is the beginners AutoCAD course and is the first in a range of Autodesk specific software courses that will take anyone from a basic 2D Drafter to a fully fledged 3D CAD & BIM specialist.

**Please Note: This course was recorded on the PC version of AutoCAD. If you use a MAC then the commands and locations may vary. I do not have a MAC so am unable to help with this but a quick Google search should help you.**
