“Fortunes are NOT made in the boom times…
That is merely the collection period.
Fortunes are made in depressions or lean times when the wise man overhauls his mind, his methods, his resources and gets in training for the race to come.”
George Wood Bacon
My recent AutoCAD Map 3D tutorial taught by Alex Penney proved to be exactly as advertised. Alex is an excellent instructor. His text and presentation are well thought out with clear instructions for each chapter and exercise. Alex's knowledge of GIS is impressive, yet he was very patient in answering my basic questions. I highly recommend the course as an excellent return on investment. I expect my new skills will change the course my of career in site planning and development.
I highly recommend Rick and his team at “CAD Training Online.” They provide excellent training and support for all levels, from the beginner to the advanced. Go for it, I did and I was most pleased.
Rick was an absolute joy to work with. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to learn from. Throughout the course, he was able to help me quickly master basic commands as well as get me comfortable with more advanced features of the program in a frustration-free manner. He taught me individual functions but also explained how those functions applied to the overall concept of how the software works.\ I absolutely recommend this class to anyone looking to become a skilled Revit user.
This course with CTO and our instructor, Rick, were fantastic. I feel capable and prepared to continue my education and also thankful that I have created lifelong relationships within this program that will help me continue in my education and career. Super thankful for this opportunity!
Rick is the most organized, efficient teacher I've ever had for an online course. The lessons are well-planned, the exercises are pertinent, and he never made us feel rushed. This is the first time I've ever completed training with new software and been enthusiastic about learning more.
CAD Training Online was very helpful. The curriculum training was above par compared to other training I have done in the past and the instructor tailored the class to my needs and steered me in the right direction for going forward. I will also compliment them for there prompt response to my request for training just a week prior to my training. I was on a tight schedule and they made it happen.
Rick is a great instructor. He led the class at my pace and tailored it to my needs and specific industry. Many times he used other programs that I would be familiar with, i.e. word, to draw parallels within the AutoCAD program. This enabled me to understand certain concepts much more quickly. I am confident in my newly acquired skills. Without hesitation I would recommend this method of learning to others in my field and similar fields as a great way to acquire new skills
This course was exactly what I was looking for to learn your product. The pace and the information were well presented.
I would recommend Rick Feineis to anyone who wants to enhance their CAD skills. He is an excellent instructor and is always patient and answers all questions. I learned a great deal from him, he made it easy to understand.
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.
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 a more advanced course with Rick in the future!
I have acquired a huge chunk of knowledge from you, I could never thank you more! Your style of teaching worked awesome for me, I liked learning about your experience with the older version of AutoCAD. The short rants of brain damage you inflicted upon yourself dealing with the old ways of CAD made me feel confident and glad the challenges I would endure are nothing to compare. I also enjoyed the off topic converse, I think that was the best experience for me was taking short breaks getting to know each other and listening to the interesting stories. I wish more teachers would acquire a sense of realism toward learning and that we adults do sometimes have very short attention spans. You can explain to a monkey how to peel the banana correctly or you can throw it at him when he's hungry. Well worth it and great job!
Rick Feineis at Revit Architecture Training taught to me a one-on-one 32-hour course in the fundamentals of Revit remotely over the internet, on a schedule that was very accommodating to my needs. The study materials he provided were thorough, covering organizing and managing new Revit projects, design, and documentation, and Rick customized the course to account for my experience with CAD and with large design and construction projects. I will recommend the course to my future employers!
As a real estate developer with limited working knowledge of AutoCAD, I was interested in having more input in the design stage of the projects. I had heard about Revit and all it could do, and was a little intimidated knowing the learning curve I would face with AutoCAD alone. As it turned out, taking the online training course in Revit was a great surprise. The program is extremely intuitive, and backed up with the live training offered though CAD Training Online I am now comfortable creating concepts from scratch as well as playing with building designs that were originally drafted in AutoCAD. Thanks Rick, your knowledge of the software and my industry go hand in hand for a very worthwhile training experience.
I feel absolutely honored to have had the opportunity to learn Revit for Interior Design from Rick and the team. The support I received was and is phenomenal! Truly feels like I'm talking to a friend 🙂 I wouldn't have been able to do what I'm doing now with 3D modeling, rendering, and floorplans without your guidance. Thank you!
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 to be able to work with such a skilled teacher all the way here in Dubai!
Revit for Interior Designers is a course worth taking. I learned so much in such a small amount of time. I am now able to be more productive while also looking more professional for my clients.
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. I plan to continue my AutoCAD education utilizing this type of course with Rick as the instructor. I also highly recommend anyone who is interested in AutoCAD to contact him. The instruction and education Rick can provide is absolutely superb.
What a great way to learn AutoCAD...customized to my busy schedule and from the comfort of my own computer! Rick Feineis was a wonderful instructor. He took all of my input on what I needed/wanted to learn, in order to use AutoCAD in my workplace, and put together a very tailored course, just for me. All of the instruction was very well explained and easy to understand. He was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend CAD Training Online's AutoCAD training for Interior Designers to anyone!
"This introductory course was one of the best investments I've made in my career. I began with a long-held bias toward pencil and paper and a generational fear of computers. After the first 4 hours with Rick, my eyes were opened to the advantages of working with Revit Architecture as a tool for interior designers. I am a convert to the new technology and am looking forward to honing my Revit skills."
Having never taken an online course in this manner before I was very impressed with the ease of attending and interacting with the instructor live. The ability to work the class exercises with immediate guidance from the instructor was awesome. The instructor was very personable and made the classes fun. I'm so glad that I took this course - Thanks, Rick!
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! Amy Roehl, Interior Design Program Director, Texas Christian University
Rick Feineis is the best of the best. I am a registered landscape architect and I work extensively in Autocad for all my projects. Rick has helped me with Autocad for at least 6 years. When I upgraded to a more updated, recent version of Autocad, Rick gave me an in-depth personal online class to help me understand the updated version and be able to work much more efficiently and faster. He has been available over the years to help me address all my questions and problems. He is incredibly smart, creative, and always clear and very helpful. I recommend Rick and his company 110%.
Rick's focus, knowledge, and great attitude made learning Revit Architecture through his company, CAD Training Online, a joy and extremely easy. He was able to work with my schedule, moving very quickly through the fundamentals of the program but all the while making sure I understood what he was teaching me. He has been a great source of knowledge on not only the program but all aspects of BIM and it's relation to the architecture profession. I very much enjoyed my experience with CAD Training Online and I plan to take further classes from them.
I was a little concerned at first with taking an online course but after meeting with Rick online, any concerns I had quickly diminished. Rick was very patient and the fact that he could mirror my screen and show me step by step methods real time was fantastic. Rick was very thorough and informative. I learned more in the 24 hours then I would have in a very long time trying to learn the program my myself. I would highly recommend and have recommended his course to others.
Our instructor was always on time for all sessions. He makes the learning process go very easy on you. Explanations were clear and the practice sessions on the dot. The practical examples and the step by step walk through is excellent. I highly recommend CAD Training Online for this course to anyone interested in learning from scratch or to enhance their knowledge in a very productive way.
I too endorse Rick Feineis as a premier Revit Mentor. Rick's excellent communication skills, in depth knowledge of the software and his ability to customize teaching sessions to fit my needs went beyond my expectations. Don't waste your time with anyone else!
"This was the best training experience that I have had during my long professional career. The personal attention to my training, questions and methods in the e-learning format was just perfect. This e-training session is head and shoulders above any others, no question, not doubt. My professional abilities have increased geometrically from the level at which I began the Revit Architecture e-training session."
Juliana was a fantastic instructor. With her help I was able to understand the concepts to move from AutoCAD to Revit MEP.
Thanks to you I showed one coworker my Revit rendering with my Google Cardboard glasses and ended up in the President's office showing him. They all think I'm a genius & it's because of you!
I highly recommend Rick and CAD Training Online. He is a highly qualified specialist in the field; very patient with students and has good insight into the learning process. He has a clear and concise way of speaking that is easy to follow and understand. As a nonnative English speaker, I could not have been more pleased with the time and attention I was given and with the clear, articulate, and focused training.
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.
I was hesitant of having an online training course, but this Revit course I've had with CAD Training Online cleared away all my hesitation and I'm extremely satisfied with this experience. Rick Feineis is a great instructor. He was very helpful and customized the course to fit my schedule and needs. His knowledge and experience in CAD and BIM programs and in training made the course easy, comprehensible and interesting. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning Revit remotely.
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!
Extremely satisfied with CAD Training Online, and the one on one help I received. My instructor was world-class and tailored the AutoCAD Electrical class to meet my company's needs. I would highly recommend this class to my peers.
Big recommendation to you all. Those who need to learn AutoCAD or Revit etc. Take a class with CADtrainingOnline.com. I have finished my 24 hours of training and I am delighted with how much I have learnt. Rick (the teacher) makes this terrifying/daunting idea of leaning such powerful computer programs fun and easy. It is one to one training where, thanks to Skype and the way he takes control of ones computer to demonstrate, it is like having a teacher sitting right next to you to guide you every step of the way. I loved this course! I have learned invaluable skills and my teacher made everything comprehensible, logic and easy to use. This is one of the best investments that I have made concerning my career. Thank you! - Extremely good value for money and I cannot recommend highly enough this fabulous course. And boy, does using software save such huge amounts of time!! - Don't hesitate any longer.... just go for it!
I’m extremely skeptical when it comes to using services online. So, when I found Rick at cadtrainingonline.com we had our doubts about using their services. I searched high and low for a company that could meet my needs. Let me be the first to say, I was completely and utterly wrong in being skeptical. Rick is amazing and helped bring my CAD experience to a new level. I’ve taken AutoCAD courses at local colleges and needed more one on one to further understand the CAD process for my field. Rick went above and beyond my expectations. He is a Master of Technology and efficient. He breaks things down in laymen terms and leaves you with examples that stick. He explains technology in such a way that makes learning simple and easy. Even since taking the course, contacting Rick in a pinch has been nothing short of amazing. He returns my message that day and helps resolve the issues in a timely manner. I highly recommend using cadonlinetraining.com for any of your technology needs. Thank you, Rick!
Rick Feines at CAD Training Online is THE best instructor I’ve ever come to know! Rick has a keen eye on his students, noticing quickly each student’s strengths and goals they want to achieve, he’ll guide them towards that direction & make sure they succeed! These classes aren’t just Revit or AutoCAD, it’s the full field in and around it. At the end of the class, he provides you with tons of component families, downloads & additional educational videos, etc, He’ll also guide you through what apps, software & services are best for business in general besides all-inclusive to architecture & design of course. Rick constantly reached out to me on my progress, answering questions with clarity and created video’s exclusively answering to issues I’ve bumped into, as well as even doing a private Live short class - out of class - to explain something that was rather complicated to me 🙂 Ultimately, I couldn’t have been more satisfied with taking this class!
Rick Feineis is a real-world oriented IT expert, business consultant and entrepreneur. With his very practical advice, I have realized about many things I need to prioritize in order for me to leverage my potential as a business person and architect. Moreover, his expertise in BIM management has significantly broadened my horizon regarding purpose-built software such as Revit. Looking for a BIM Manager expert to help you to improve your business productivity? Rick Feineis is the best way to go.
This was such valuable training. Rick understands that people learn by repetition. So by completing example after example over and over again, I can now comfortably and confidently use CAD to help my company grow and succeed.
Loved the course. I learned so much. Rick was an excellent teacher. I would recommend him to anyone. I wish I had done this course before completing my final test for RHODEC. I would have gotten a better grade.
Rick is an excellent instructor. The material was presented in such a way as to keep you at ease and at the same time focused. Nice blend of humor and education simultaneously. When I began the course I could not even draw a line by the use of AutoCAD. I now possess a good base starting point within the AutoCAD world. I would highly recommend this or any other course through Rick Feineis and his company. Good job!
I have tried learning AutoCAD on my own but it was a daunting task and always ended giving up because I got frustrated. Rick made the AutoCAD Online course fun and interesting. After completing the course I can do a lot and because Rick puts so much emphasis on examples I have retained the information. I highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn AutoCAD.
I also learned Revit Architecture through Rick Feineis. He tailored the course to my current knowledge of AutoCAD and 3DSmax. The course covered everything from drafting in Revit, creating a complete 3D project which pulling views for elevations, sections, plans, details and 3D views was extremely simple.Ricks style of training via a remote desktop session allowed me to easily do the course from my hotel room and easily pick up the skills and information I needed. I highly recommend it!
Dear Interior Designers, forget about AutoCAD and try Revit. Using this program you will save a lot of time and the end result will be great!
The course ware was detailed and well laid out. It followed a consistent procedural process and was easy to understand. The instructor has the patience of Job. He was well spoken and clear in his description of the software.
Rick was a phenomenal instructor and very motivating.
