You Really Don’t Know What Online Instructor Led Training Is
Until You Watch This Video
Watch to Learn How Our Training Method is Radically Different
A PERSONAL LETTER FROM OUR SENIOR INSTRUCTOR
My name is Rick Feineis and I am the owner of CAD Training Online. I have been providing training to over 7,500 people around the world for over 25 years. During this time I have developed what is now known in the industry as one of the best ways to learn complex CAD and BIM software via the internet.
The process that I developed is a radical departure from anything that you may have experienced in the past. The hardest part of my job is getting people to understand how significant this process is to their learning. I sincerely hope that I can get the chance to prove to you that this is simply the best way to learn complex CAD and BIM software.
Everyone has participated in some form of e-learning where the student simply watches a video and can’t ask any questions that come up. Or perhaps have had to attend a training Webinar that consists of nothing more than PowerPoint slides and lengthy software demonstrations.
These passive forms of training do not lend themselves to hands-on practice or interaction with a professional CAD educator. For training on complex CAD software, these forms of training are mediocre at best.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO READ
Once in the virtual CAD classroom, the instructor can see each student’s computer in real time and the student can see the instructor’s computer at all times. When the student is in need of direct assistance the instructor can IMMEDIATELY take control of the student’s computer and directly show the student how to solve the problem. The instructor can even share a student’s computer with the entire class so that everyone can learn from what someone else has discovered.
Our proprietary online classroom software allows us to recreate the hand holding approach that we all crave in a real classroom. This is not online training where you just watch what the instructor does. This is 100% interactive, hands-on training that will help you reach your training goals. I personally guarantee that this will work for you or you will get 100% of your fees back, with no questions asked.
WHAT YOU JUST READ MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE TO THE QUALITY OF YOUR TRAINING
It is widely known that the impact and benefits of properly conducted instructor-led training far outweigh any other form of software training. Watching boring training videos can’t help when someone has questions that are not covered in the video. Only live instructor-led training allows for 100% teacher/student interaction. CAD Training Online classes typically have a student to teacher ratio of only 4 to 1, ensuring the attention and hand-holding that is expected from a professionally conducted instructor-led class.
The primary benefit to Live Online Virtual Classroom Training is cost savings. During our current economic environment, we have watched this form of training grow to represent over 90% of our offered training services. This method of instruction does not require any travel at all. The cost savings per student for a typical four-day training class exceeds $1,000 when taken into account travel, lodging, and meal expenses.
Not having to travel has several benefits beyond simple cost savings:
- Students who do not have to travel from the office are more apt to be able to take care of business during class breaks. In addition, not having to travel means that multi-day classes do not have to be run consecutively day after day. Eliminating travel allows splitting multi-day classes up any way we need to. Want to train only on Wednesdays? How about Tuesday and Thursday nights? CAD Training Online can create a custom schedule to match anyone’s needs.
- This one method for splitting the class up allows for a far higher level of learning retention. Isn’t that why you are in class in the first place?
As the owner and senior instructor of CAD Training Online, I welcome you to experience training as it was meant to be: personal, compassionate to your learning style and directly applicable to the needs of a designer.
Please join me and the other passionate designers that attend our classes.
I personally guarantee that this will be one of the best investments you can make regarding your professional training. – Rick Feineis
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!

Maintaining a leading edge during tough economic times is a challenge faced when keeping business ahead of the competition. It is known that training is critical to honing skills and increasing productivity, yet during tough times people often do not attend professionally led training due to the high cost of travel and time away from being productive in the office. To address this hurdle, CAD Training Online has brought instructor-led classroom training to right to your desktop.
Our training mantra is:
“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
CAD Training Online provides instructor-led online training on the use of all Autodesk software to designers around the world. Our training curriculum is specially developed and is certified by Autodesk.
Don’t take our word for it, read what one of our students has to say about her experience with our special form of training:
“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.” – Pam Pollack – CATBIRD Designs
