SketchUp Level 1 - Essentials Course Outline

 (3 days)

Overview
This 3-day class provides an overview of all of the essential SketchUp skills needed for general modeling, layout, and architecture. SketchUp is one of the easiest 3D tools to use but it has many features. We teach this class in a 3-day format to provide time to review all of the major features and to give participants time to practice.

Who Should Attend
This is for individuals who need to get a complete overview of SketchUp's essential skills. This course is intended for participants with little or no 3-dimensional drawing or SketchUp experience, but who want to start to create 3-dimensional models using SketchUp.

Special Note to New Hampshire Residents
This course has not yet been approved by the State's Department of Education. Please contact us to get an update as to when the class should be available in New Hampshire.

Hardware Platform
All of our SketchUp courses are taught on the Windows platform. However, because SketchUp on the Mac is very similar to the PC implementation, we welcome Mac users. Mac users have been able to take our SketchUp training without issues. Note: we recommend that individuals taking our class from their home or office connect to the "student" computer using a PC. A Mac can be used to connect to the "meeting" component of the class. To see the minor differences between SketchUp on the PC and Mac, please review this video prior to your training:
