AutoCAD Training Classes


 

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. 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 CAD program, and it is still the most widely used CAD application of the technology. Our AutoCAD classes are designed for participants with intermediate technical backgrounds and strong math skills. Additionally, drafting and blueprint reading experience is recommended.

ONLC’s AutoCAD classes are led by seasoned instructors who have decades of experience using the software and teaching it to others. AutoCAD classes are paired with immersive and hands-on exercises in different disciplines to effectively learn the software. The software can be leveraged to create technical drawings, architectural and site plans, machines, parts, furniture, schematics, and so much more.

In these AutoCAD classes, you will 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

AutoCAD for Novice Users

Our 5-day AutoCAD for Novice Users class is designed for individuals who need to come up on the AutoCAD software but who have little or no CAD, drafting or architectural design background. It provides extra time for practice labs and review sessions so that individuals can gain a better mastery of the skills and concepts needed to go from novice to skilled AutoCAD user in a single week.

The objective of AutoCAD for Novice Users is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. This course covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are introduced throughout the class. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts to work competently with the software.

No prior working knowledge of CAD software is required for this class. In addition, students need no prior drafting or architectural design background to successfully complete this class.

Certifications

Earning AutoCAD certification proves to clients and perspective employers that you have the technical skills to maximize what AutoCAD can do. ONLC's classes can help you prepare for AutoCAD ACU and ACP certifications.

AutoCAD Certified User (ACU)

This certification confirms that students have developed the entry-level skills needed to effectively use AutoCAD software. Autodesk Certified User (ACU) certification demonstrates a student’s ability to create and plot drawings, edit objects, work with layouts, and more. Attending the below courses plus 50 hours of hands-on experience with Autodesk AutoCAD® is strongly recommended before attempting the ACU Exam.

AutoCAD Level 1: Essentials (3 Days)

This three-day instructor-led, hands-on course covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. View outline & dates

AutoCAD Level 2: Intermediate (2 Days)

This two-day instructor-led, hands-on course continues where the Level 1: Essentials course ends with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software including advanced editing and construction techniques, advanced plotting and publishing options, adding parametric constraints to objects and creating local and global blocks to name a few. View outline & dates

Exam

The Autodesk AutoCAD Certified User Exam includes multiple-choice and performance-based questions. Authorized AutoCAD exams are available from Certiport. Students schedule exams directly with that testing provider. Be sure to review Certiport's list of exam locations https://www.certiport.com/locator and confirm directly with that center if they take students from the public for testing before starting your certification quest. When you pass the authorized exam, you will receive a digital badge for that credential. Anyone who views your badge can select it to learn about your skills and verify its authenticity.

Autodesk AutoCAD Certified Professional (ACP)

Autodesk Certified Professional (ACP) is an advanced- and professional-level credential for Autodesk software users who possess an extended amount of real-world Autodesk software experience. It confirms a professional's knowledge of the tools, features, and common tasks of AutoCAD including dimensioning, basic drawing skills, using hatching and gradients, and more.

The below courses are recommended with extensive hands-on experience with Autodesk AutoCAD® (some suggest up to 400 hours) before attempting the ACP Exam.

AutoCAD Level 1: Essentials (3 Days)

This three-day instructor-led, hands-on course covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software.
