All of our AutoCAD courses are approved by Autodesk for eLearning. Every course is real-world, project-based. Our AutoCAD curriculum starts at the very beginning. Our AutoCAD courses are designed to get you up and running in a professional environment in minimal time. You can also earn AIA Continuing Education Credits for these courses.
Next course cycle begins: Friday, February 16, 2018See course descriptions for full course schedule
In this AutoCAD course, we start at the very beginning, by drawing drafting symbols, kitchen and bath fixtures, and then a floor plan. We assemble everything into one deliverable sheet file. Become familiar with the AutoCAD user interface and basic AutoCAD commands, including Drawing, Modifying, Layering Standards, Text, Dimensioning and Plotting.
Use AutoCAD to create an abbreviated set of construction documents for a Habitat for Humanity project, including floor plan, roof plan, foundation plan, electrical plan and building elevations. Create and insert blocks, externally reference files and determine the appropriate times to apply those skill sets to optimize project efficiency.
In this AutoCAD course, we create a floor plan, multi-scale enlarged plans, roof plan and building elevations for a more complicated one-story residence. We develop a titleblock from scratch, including all of the associated file components. This project will be continued in CAD 302, Construction Documents 2.
In this AutoCAD course, we continue developing a set of construction documents for the project we started in CAD301. We create more building elevations, building sections, wall sections; modify detail drawings; create a metes and bounds (Civil) drawing, an architectural site plan and a cover sheet.
In this AutoCAD course, we develop architectural details using the two dominant methods practiced at architectural and engineering firms – creating detail drawings from scratch and also by referencing and clipping information from other drawings in the construction document set. The details (drawn at different scales) are referenced into a deliverable sheet file, which is plotted at 1:1.
This AutoCAD course teaches students important skill sets to help them succeed as CAD and Project Managers, how to set up the AutoCAD environment for their office, how to successfully manage CAD projects and how to update/adapt “inherited projects” to conform with office CAD standards.
In this online AutoCAD 3D course, you learn 3D modeling skills from a licensed architect. The skills and workflow taught reflect real-world 3D projects. Begin to develop your 3D model by extracting information from 2D architectural plans and elevations. You will create a 3D presentation model including 3D topographic site and other relevant site components using 3D modeling commands and tools.
This online Intermediate 3D AutoCAD course is designed as a follow-on to CAD305. Taught by a licensed architect, who is also an AutoCAD Certified Instructor, the course will focus on modeling many props, which will be integrated into the 3D model you created in CAD305. You will learn more advanced 3D AutoCAD modeling skills, including solids, surfaces, meshes and wireframe objects.
This is a seminar review course for the AutoCAD Certification Exam. No answers to the Certification Exam are provided. Valuable overview concepts of the types of questions, the format for the questions, the workflow and the methodology/logic behind the kinds of questions on the exam are presented. Taught by an AutoCAD Certified Instructor who has worked with AutoCAD for over 15 years.
