AutoCAD Civil 3D Survey Introduction – Field to Finish has been developed for surveyors and survey technicians that do not necessarily need all of the functionality that is covered in the AutoCAD Civil 3D Introduction training.



This in-depth class is for surveyors and survey technicians that do not necessarily need all of the functionality that is taught in the AutoCAD Civil 3D Fundamentals course. This class equips the surveyor with the basic knowledge needed to use Civil 3D efficiently in a typical daily workflow.

Students learn how to import the converted field equipment survey data into a standardized environment in Civil 3D and to use the automation tools to create an Existing Condition Plan. Data collection, least square analysis, and traverses are also covered. Other topics that help in increasing efficiency include styles, proper AutoCAD drafting techniques, the methodology needed to create linework effectively for variables used in defining symbology, surfaces, categorizing points, and importing imagery.



A working knowledge of the following: AutoCAD and its functions and knowledge of design and drafting concepts dealing with land development topics and experience with Microsoft Windows.

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

After completing AutoCAD training with Rick Feineis a couple of months ago, there was not a moment of doubt to continue with the Revit training. 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
