5 Day(s)


Why waste several months learning something that can be learned in just three days? The AutoCAD 101: Green Belt course may be intensive, but it will get you where you want to be. After three days of practical work, you'll have a strong grasp of the basic commands necessary for professional 2D drawing, design, and drafting using AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, and you'll be ready to turn your sketches into professional design.

The primary objective of this AutoCAD Training course is to teach students the basic commands necessary for professional 2D drawing, design, and drafting using AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.

Students learn the features, commands and techniques for creating, editing, and printing drawings with AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Using hands-on exercises, students explore how to create 2D production drawings.


This AutoCAD Training course is designed for new users of AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.


You'll know about drafting, design, or engineering principles although this knowledge is not essential it would be an advantage.

Skills Gained

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.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
