AutoCAD 501 - AutoCAD Bootcamp


Autodesk AutoCAD Logo
Class Description
In our 5-day AutoCAD Bootcamp, participants get in depth training on the industry standard tools for engineering and building professionals. This class is really the best way to fully emerge into AutoCAD. From starting the software and understanding the user interface to architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) projects, participants will get in-depth hands on practice and walk away ready to work and capable of creating full designs.

Special Note to Macintosh users

While AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT for Macintosh users are welcome to attend this class and will learn skills and techniques that apply to both Macintosh and Windows versions of AutoCAD, public classes are typically taught only on Windows computers and the course manual and training files are designed specifically for the Windows operating system. AutoCAD for Mac software includes most of the functionality of the Windows version of AutoCAD, but with a specialized Mac interface and feature set. Mac users may want to view this comparison of AutoCAD for Windows and AutoCAD for Mac prior to registering for this class.
