AutoCAD Advanced - Virtual Course

This is an "online" version of the AutoCAD Advanced training course, delivered remotely over a number of individual half-day sessions. The course introduces advanced techniques and teaches the delegate how to be more proficient in the use of AutoCAD. It will teach delegates how to recognise the best tool for the task, the best way to use that tool, and how to create new tools to accomplish tasks more efficiently.


Prerequisites

As this course is delivered via a web-link, those attending will need to have access to a workstation, connected to the internet, and with AutoCAD installed. A twin screen setup and a headset with microphone is also highly recommended. Delegates should have attended the AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Fundamentals or equivalent.
