The Civil 3D online training class Bundle is geared towards students with no AutoCAD experience. Civil 3D uses the backbone of AutoCAD to leverage the specific tools in Civil 3D. Students will learn the fundamentals of Civil 3D and prepare a set of construction documents from Civil 3D files. When you complete the online training bundle, you will develop intermediate-level Civil 3D skills.
The classes are real-world, project-based curriculum. Your instructors are practicing professionals who use AutoCAD and Civil 3D on a daily basis. Strong student engagement.
The classes listed below are included in this training bundle. Each course will be scheduled one at a time in the sequence listed. Each course will be scheduled immediately after one another, unless requested otherwise.
