About This CourseBeginner

A lot of books and courses out there spend the first parts describing every single command and instruction which can leave the student feeling bored and overwhelmed. It is no good learning what a command does if you don’t understand why you need to do it.

In any computer-aided design software there are a few basic commands you use all the time and many that you don’t need to know in order to get started. I believe in teaching these basic actions and getting the student creating drawings straight away. Using the type of drawings you may be asked to create or amend in a real working environment gives the student the confidence to then use what they have learned to create their own designs. More advanced techniques can then be taught as they progress which show the students why they are being used in various situations. 

I have used this method successfully to teach many students and hope to teach you the same way. This course is the beginners AutoCAD course and is the first in a range of Autodesk specific software courses that will take anyone from a basic 2D Drafter to a fully fledged 3D CAD & BIM specialist.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone that wants to learn AutoCAD
  • People who may have used AutoCAD before and would like to brush up
  • People moving to AutoCAD from another drafting software type

    A Good Course to know the fundamental tools and actions for this software
    A Good course to get you drawing quickly, one thing was that I think the order of the course units were a bit mixed up as the explanation for how to create layers came much further along in the course, so it's there but just further towards the end. I feel confident now to start drawing and the build up my confidence I hope I can remember everything. Thank you Mike and Skill success :-) !
