AutoCAD: Beyond the Basics
Duration: 02 day(s)
This AutoCAD Beyond the Basics training course is designed for those using AutoCAD with a Windows operating system. This training course is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software.

The objective of AutoCAD Beyond the Basics is to enable you to create, modify, and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software.

This AutoCAD training course continues on from the topics covered in the AutoCAD Essentials course. It covers more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template, creating annotation styles, and how to work with external references. You learn such skills as:
  • Using more advanced editing and construction techniques
  • Adding parametric constraints to objects
  • Creating local and global blocks
  • Setting up layers, styles, and templates
  • Attaching External References
The AutoCAD Beyond the Basics course is not recommended for users that have completed the AutoCAD Fundamentals course, because Beyond the Basics contains the same content.

Prerequisites for this AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT training course:

  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology.
  • A working knowledge of your operating system.

Note: Course may satisfy your local continuing education engineering and surveying requirements. Check with your state board or provincial organization to verify your requirements.
