CAD Training Online Offers Discounted Training to
Educators and Students

CAD Training Online’s instructors have been providing training the academic community for over 20 years. Our Autodesk certified instructors provide online instructor-led training to educators in both Secondary and Post Secondary schools.

We realize that with educator training budgets at an all-time low it is hard to afford quality professional development training. We also know that it is hard to travel and that it is frustrating to register for classes that are consistently rescheduled due to low enrollment.

At CAD Training Online we provide affordable training that doesn’t require travel and is conducted in a manner that allows you to actually learn how to apply your software skills in the classroom. We don’t simply teach you how to use Autodesk software, we provide you with the skills to empower yourself and your students.

Whether you’re an educator developing a more engaging curriculum or a student creating school projects & portfolios, CAD Training Online offers you a professional development program that will help you excel.

Boost classroom success with free design software and affordable teacher training – You don’t have to wait until summer vacation to pursue career development, gain project-based learning expertise, and marketable design software skills on the job with training from the leader in online instructor-led Autodesk training.

TCU recently approached CAD Training Online to provide much-needed Revit training to our entire Interior Design faculty. Texas Christian University faculty enthusiastically agree that Rick’s approach to software training is the most effective we have ever experienced. Much more efficient than an instructor physically present, Rick’s remote training involves teaching and showing every step of the process on each trainee’s desktop in real-time. The brilliance of this approach is that Rick is in the computer with you every step of the way!

Once you experience this training method you will never go back!

Rick is a great educator, passionate about instructing and mentoring industry teachers. I cannot thank him or recommend him highly enough for the great Autodesk Certified Instructor (ACI) Workshop he put on in San Francisco! Having an opportunity to be trained and critiqued by someone like him is a rare opportunity and his comments and encouragement are appreciated and will be utilized by me far beyond the short three-day time I spent in his Workshop.
It was obvious that he really enjoys and thrives on helping teachers improve, and improve. I know that all of his Workshop attendees did!
