Course Objectives

AutoCAD Architecture is a specific version of AutoCAD which features tools and functions specifically suited to architectural work.

Our introduction course is designed for users with very little or no experience of using AutoCAD Architecture. However, although no previous CAD experience is necessary, any drafting, design or architectural, engineering experience would be an advantage.

It is recommended that delegates have a little working knowledge of Microsoft Windows.

Our courses are taught using the most up to date version of AutoCAD Architecture. However, we can customise our courses to cover any of the previous older versions of the software. Please state which version you would like to be trained on when enquiring about this course.
