AutoCAD Civil 3D, Fundamentals

This course will provide a thorough introduction to AutoCAD Civil 3D. The course features concise, straightforward explanations and real-world, hands-on exercises and tutorials that provide instruction on the core features and functions of Civil 3D.

"Even as a novice with Autodesk products I found this to be a very useful and informative course which will undoubtedly help in my everyday job. The tutor was very knowledgeable of the subject, and more importantly, took the time to explain anything that was not fully understood by the students." - Ian A.

"The training course was set up primarily for my civil engineering colleague - I took part primarily out of personal interest and to gain an understanding of the product and its application. I am a structural engineer and intend to move from AutoCAD to Revit imminently, having use of Revit LT now.
I thought the course was intensive, well paced and that the trainer had a great knowledge of the product and its application."
- Martin L.
