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…read more

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. 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…read more

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 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.

Andrew Conlisk

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.

Andrew Conlisk

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…read more

Jeff Wirth

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…read more
