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.
