AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT, Essentials

This AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Essentials course 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 delegate to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are also introduced throughout the course.

"The course was structured and delivered to a high standard - easy to follow and enough intensity over the 3 days to cover the programme as much as it could. Would recommend to colleagues and friends." - Carmelia P.
