Who should attend these sessions?
Anyone who plans to become a regular CAD user and needs the fundamental skills to create, edit and dimension CAD drawings. These private sessions are ideal for those new to AutoCAD® or those who have not used the software for a few years and don’t want to sit in a classroom. No previous CAD experience is necessary. Some familiarity with Windows 2000 or WindowsXP, some drafting, design or engineering experience may be helpful, but is not required.
