What is CAD?

CAD is not just a skill that permits the design of physical objects but it allows for testing of how complex assemblies are fitted together. It is used by engineers, land developers, architects, mechanical engineers and other design professionals to design, visualise, document and communicate their ideas clearly and efficiently. Two and three dimensional Computer Aided Design is used to produce accurate drawing with ease, offering the user flexibility to transform and present drawings instantaneously.

What courses do we offer?

We offer a range of CAD courses, which will suit beginners as well as experienced users. There are no qualification restrictions or age restrictions. All we ask is that you have a good understanding of basic computer use.

Entry requirements

No previous CAD experience or experience is necessary. However, any previous experience of drafting, design or engineering is a plus. It is also recommended that delegates have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows 7.

Why CAD training?

Following College or University courses, your CAD skills will go rusty if not used. Gone are the days when you could walk straight into a job because it takes time. Lack of up to date and current CAD skills is the main reason why most students would fail a CAD skills assessment at a job interview. These skills assessments are becoming more popular with employers as they wish to avoid expensive recruitment mistakes.

What is included in the booking?
