This hands-on course will take complete beginners to confident AutoCAD users in 3 days, with a range of in-depth and practical lessons and is intended for those looking to produce 2D plans and elevations using the software. Whether you're looking to further your career, use AutoCAD in your existing role, or are looking for a new and exciting creative avenue, this course is for you. Once you've completed this course, you could join our AutoCAD 2D Intermediate to Advanced Course and take your new skills to the next level. 


What will you learn?

This three day course is ideal for students who are completely new to the software or who have some limited self-taught knowledge. We'll have you drawing plans within the first hour of your class, whatever your ability. You'll grasp the foundations of AutoCAD before moving onto more in-depth lessons which will bring you to grips with the ins and outs of the software. If you prefer, we can tailor your AutoCAD learning experience to your needs and desired outcomes. 


You’ll spend the first day covering the basics like user interface and terminology before moving into a wide range of lessons which will aid you in your understanding of AutoCAD and its creative processes. The course will guide you through an introduction to drawing, editing, drawing aids, layers, text, and dimensions. You will also work through drawing exercises and plotting. By the end of the course, you will be able to create your own simple drawings, whether it be for architectural, interior, engineering, events, furniture or product design.
