AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Essentials - Virtual Course

This is an "online" version of the AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Essentials training course, delivered remotely over a number of individual half-day sessions. It covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The training course 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.


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. Those considering this AutoCAD training course should have a working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology, as well as an understanding of the essentials of basic MS-Windows use.
