Willie Coker

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 them approving my fire sprinkler design. That is awesome!

I would strongly recommend this course to absolutely anyone who is interested in learning the basics of AutoCAD. Even those who have limited computer skills can learn from Rick. All concepts are clearly explained with helpful examples, and Rick makes sure every student understands before moving on to the next topic. Even after the course, Rick makes it easy to ask questions via email or phone and responds quickly. I'm very likely to look into…read more

For years I thought that CAD was something I didn't need and couldn't learn but I was wrong, CAD Training Online was exactly what I needed. I not only learned a lot about CAD but I am furthering my education with them going into AutoCAD MEP, REVIT Architectural and REVIT MEP. Rick is a great guy and a great trainer.

Rick Feineis was my instructor during an AutoCAD 2010 training course I recently took. His teaching skills were above and beyond the expectations I had. AutoCAD can be a difficult program to learn in general, but Rick's experience and teaching capabilities made it a comfortable and fun experience.

Rick Feineis is a great teacher and trainer of the AutoCAD program. He does a great job at personalizing the program to fit your needs. The class is done through the internet and the program is taught with a class textbook. Rick breaks the book down and teaches the class in a step by step formula. He is fun to work with and also has expert advice on business and internet marketing.
