Architects, engineers, design drafters, and other professionals within building engineering design often use Auto CAD. Auto Cad is used along with add-on applications 3D Max and Revit to create scaled views. These are used to manage efficiently, plot design and output. CAD is used to inform and share digitally, and reuse accurate information an detailed drawings.
This is a full cost course. There is no fee remission available and you cannot apply for an advanced learner loan to pay for your fees.
What You'll Learn
This unit covers eight learning outcomes. At the end of the course you will be able to use CAD hardware and operating systems; identify key components of the software relating to the 2D drawing environment; use a range of viewing commands and set up the drawing space; use drawing commands to produce shapes and the software’s co-ordinate system to aid accurate drawing; and hatch, text and simple dimensioning routines.
You must be familiar and comfortable using computers.
How you will be assessed
You will undertake three practical timed assessments on the computer using Auto CAD, there will also be a written test on the function of Auto CAD.
Total Fees: £850.00
If the course is longer than one year the total fees are for the first year only and further fees may apply in future years. All fees are based on a ‘home’ learner status. Please contact us for information on overseas fees.
