The objective of AutoCAD® Essentials is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Even at this fundamental level, the AutoCAD software is one of the most sophisticated computer applications that you are likely to encounter. Therefore, learning to use it can be challenging.
AutoCAD Essentials covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are also introduced throughout the training course.
Entrance requirements: No previous CAD experience required but it is recommended that you have working knowledge of computers. Drafting experience is a plus. For the online course you are required to have your own suitable desktop/laptop and a stable internet connection.
