Learn AutoCAD from beginners to an advanced level. The AutoCAD Creative License package includes the entire Autodesk curriculum for total immersion into AutoCAD.

The AutoCAD Creative License package is a training program that features a combination of 3 Autodesk courses for a discounted price. The package does not have a schedule of its own. Each class is scheduled separately.

Who is this course for?

This course has been designed for the professional who wants to learn everything about AutoCAD. The AutoCAD Creative Licence is truly an opportunity to go from Zero to Hero with Academy Class.

Assumed Knowledge

Before using this guide, delegates should have a working knowledge of the following:

You’ll know about drafting, design, or engineering principles although this knowledge is not essential it will be helpful.

What you will learn

You’ll learn to navigate the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT user interfaces, use the fundamental features of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, use the precision drafting tools in AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT to develop accurate technical drawings and present drawings in a detailed and visually impressive way.

You’ll learn how to use the powerful tools and techniques for drawing, dimensioning, and printing 2D drawings.

Represent a design by creating solid primitives, solid or surface models from cross-sectional geometry, or composite models from multiple solid models, complete a solid model design by adding the necessary features to detail, duplicate, and position 3D models, convert 2D objects to 3D objects, document a 3D design by creating 2D drawings for production and visualization, communicate design ideas using visual styles, lights, model walk-through tools, and renderings
