This class incorporates the features, commands and techniques for becoming more productive when creating, annotating and printing drawings with AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.

This intermediate-level course continues to build on the basic concepts of the AutoCAD Introduction course.



The primary objectives are: to teach you tools and techniques for drawing, dimensioning and printing 2D drawings; to enable you to reuse previously created content and extract information from your drawings; and to teach you the detailed concepts of designing in AutoCAD. With an understanding of these tools, you can begin to streamline the design process and become more productive with AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.



This course is designed for the experienced AutoCAD user. It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of AutoCAD as well as an understanding of creating and editing AutoCAD objects.

My name is Willie Coker and I recently took a 24 hour AutoCAD course with Rick Feineis as my instructor. I learned so much in so little time. Rick was able to teach me AutoCAD specifically in just what I requested for the line of work that I do for living. Right after I designed a fire sprinkler system I submitted the plans to two separate plan reviewers and both of the plan reviewers signed off on…read more

I learned a lot, it was fun and Rick is very skilled, passionate in what he does and a great teacher! Still amazed that thanks to modern technology (and a teacher who is willing to wake up at 6am on a Sunday because of time difference) I was lucky enough…read more
