What you'll learn in this autocad class:

AutoCAD is one of our most popular series classes. A green flag beside a date on the right means that a session has met the minimum enrollment levels and is running. However, it is common for dates for this course to fill several weeks in advance. Even if a date has a green flag, you might not be able to get into that session if it is full. Plan ahead! To avoid disappointment, it is best to register for this class at least three or four weeks in advance

The AutoCAD® Level 1: Essentials class is designed for those using AutoCAD® or AutoCAD LT® with a Windows operating system. This class is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. The objective of AutoCAD Level 1: Essentials is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software.

This course covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are introduced throughout the class. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as:

Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface.
Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools.
Organizing drawing objects on layers.
Inserting reusable symbols (blocks).
Preparing a layout to be plotted.
Adding text, hatching, and dimensions.
