Let’s take a look at the top AutoCAD training and professional development courses that will take your learning to the next level.
AutoCAD is the standard design software used in the engineering, architecture, interior design and construction industries. Designers and drafters use it to create two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) computer drawings. Students interested in learning how to use this software can complete coursework to earn a certificate or degree or take individual non-credit classes at a higher education institution.
Courses that earn continuing education units toward professional development and training are available at Autodesk-authorized training centres.
The following are some of the most common topics covered in AutoCAD design courses:
- 3D modelling
- Multiple Lines
- Geometric Shapes
- Isometric drawings
- Linear Dimensions
- Polar Arrays
- Layers and Line Types
AutoCAD Training Courses
Introductory courses provide students with a basic knowledge of AutoCAD’s interface, menu options, toolbars and operational commands. Courses often include the opportunity for students to observe the execution of professional drafting projects and learn to create their own 2D designs. Basic skills include drawing, editing, layering and plotting. Click here for more information
After completing prerequisite introductory instruction in AutoCAD, students often receive training in intermediate-level AutoCAD skills. These can include hatching, dimensioning, cross-references, tables and block attributes. Students can also be introduced to 3D designs and related drafting skills in preparation for advanced AutoCAD training. Click here for more information

AutoCAD Training Courses
AutoCAD courses are available in AutoCAD and Autodesk certificate programs. Students can complete these training programs online or in a traditional classroom format. AutoCAD training programs might consist of only one comprehensive course that includes progressive instruction from basic to advanced skill levels. More often, students are required to complete several courses over a specified period of time, sometimes as long as three years. Some programs also include instruction in other CAD software programs such as Revit and 3ds MAX Design.
