AutoCAD Training Classes & Certifications


Architects, graphic designers, engineers, and a variety of other industry professionals utilize AutoCAD to build computer-aided 2D and 3D designs before the plans are brought to life. Created by Autodesk, AutoCAD software replaces manual drafting with an automated process. Computer Aided Drafting ( CAD ) programs allow you to explore design ideas, visualize concepts through photorealistic renderings, and simulate how a design will perform in the real world. CAD software is used to design cars, ships, bicycles, prosthetics, and so much more.

AutoCAD software was the first computer aided drafting program and it is still the most widely used CAD technology. We have AutoCAD training classes for participants new to computer aided drafting as well as those with intermediate technical backgrounds and strong math skills. Drafting and blueprint reading experience is helpful.

ONLC’s AutoCAD classes are led by seasoned instructors who have decades of experience using the software and teaching. AutoCAD classes are immersive with hands-on exercises in different disciplines to effectively learn and apply the software. The software can be leveraged to create technical drawings, architectural and site plans, machines, parts, furniture, schematics, and so much more. With ONLC you get to choose the AutoCAD learning experience that's best for you to have professional drafting techniques under your belt in no time.

With AutoCAD training you can learn:

  • Computer-aided software drafting
  • 2D and 3D computer-aided design
  • 2D and 3D computer-aided documentation
  • Automated processes
  • How a simulated design will perform in the real world
  • Blueprints
  • Architectural drawings
  • Drafting symbols
  • Floor plans
  • Layers
  • Text
  • Dimensions
  • Plotting
