  • Jane: “I had tried other courses that said they were for beginners but assumed there were things you already knew. This course actually starts at the beginning and explains what you’re doing as you’re doing it, without making you feel lost. I do have to pause often but it’s so helpful!”

Create building designs, alterations, floorplans, import & edit PDF files of existing drawings, add text & dimensions and understand how to use Paper Space & Model Space!

This course was designed for the complete beginner, with practice files and a realistic project to allow you to put into practice the skills as you learn them. Throughout this AutoCAD course, you’ll be creating your own real-world realistic project that is indicative of the kind you might be asked to create in the workplace. You will learn how to produce a professional drawing to industry standards and hopefully inspire you to do even more!

You will begin right at the start and learn how to set up the software in order to use AutoCAD the way most people in the industry like to use it. You will learn basic selection, creation, and modification techniques first before following along as we put those skills into practice to create a building layout together.

As the course progresses you will switch between learning basic skills and then putting them into practice on your project. By learning this way you will not only learn how to do something but why and where we use those skills. This will leave you with a much greater understanding of the software and how it is used in the workplace.

  • Abraham: “You have put together a wonderful course. Auto CAD was completely new to me however I feel much more confident after having gone through this course. As a beginner, Auto CAD was definitely intimidating to me however your course has put me at ease. I am a working professional in the marine construction field and frequently need to make new drawings for vessel reconfiguration, new fabrication, etc. Previously I would make a sketch and depend on others for a final drawing but now I have started doing it on my own in a small way. Once again thanks for designing this beautiful course. Great Job!
