Nov 6 2017 - 08:00 - Fredericton

What AutoCAD ® Advanced is all about! AutoCAD Advanced teaches you commands and introduces techniques to help you be efficient in your use of AutoCAD. This is done by teaching you advanced  topics, new process and/or procedures. We also show you how to recognize the  best tool for the task. Then teach you the best way to use that tool. We’ll  also teach you how to create new tools to accomplish your tasks more  efficiently. This is accomplished by using hands-on  exercises. The courseware is not industry specific and can be applied  to architectural, mechanical, or other trades. Class numbers are small  (maximum 8 students) meaning that you have ample opportunity to discuss your  specific requirements with the Instructor and work out any problems you are  having.This course supports preparation for Autodesk Certification  Exams. If you are planning to train to become Autodesk Certified on AutoCAD  this course can help you prepare. The learning objectives of the lessons and  exercises in this course map directly to the objectives and questions on the  Autodesk Certification Exams.
