Which Course Format is Best for Me?

Instructor-led Training (ILT)

Live, instructor-led training classes offer an intense immersion into the software and its features. These hands-on, interactive classes are great for those who need to learn or review a large body of knowledge in a short-time, and who prefer to have a subject-matter professional leading and supporting the class. ILT classes are especially recommended for learners who may not perform well in a self-study environment.

You'll work with the software doing labs and exercises throughout the class. You'll be able to ask questions, participate in any class discussions, and get assistance directly from the instructor during class. You also get to keep the training materials.

Students pick their ILT class dates from our public schedule. You may attend class from any of ONLC's hundreds of centers coast-to-coast or from your own location (review easy setup). ONLC limits ILT classes to typically no more than 12 students nationwide to ensure for individual attention from the instructor.

ILT classes also include our free retake option. You may repeat the same ILT course (must be same title and version) one time within 12 months of your original class date at no additional charge (retake details).


AutoCAD On-Demand (self-study)

AutoCAD On-Demand courses are self-study, self-paced. You will have access to the course 24/7 for up to 12 months, so you can learn whenever it's convenient for you. Experienced AutoCAD users can use this e-learning format to learn specific topics or brush up without taking time off from work. Those new to the software can learn at their own pace and have the ability to repeat and review sections as often as needed.

Each AutoCAD On-Demand class comes with...

  • Well-documented and illustrated descriptions and examples of features and tools from the software.
  • Step-by-step procedures that establish workflows for end-users.
  • Hands-on practice exercises, including provided datasets, that take end-users through typical scenarios they will encounter using the software.
  • Command summaries for quick-reference when using the software.
  • Graded review questions to validate understanding.
  • The latest version of the key titles for each software product included in each bundle.
  • Keyword search functionality that will return learning elements (i.e., course topics) related to search terms. Search will be full text search through the content.
  • Reporting to track user progress and proficiency improvements.

All On-Demand courses require you to have access to your own computer loaded with the software you are learning. While access to the software is provided in our ILT classes, it is not provided with the On-Demand format.
