  • Academic Title
    Mechanical CAD Operator Certificate
  • Course description
    Level One
    DRWG1170     AutoCAD - Level I

    Description: This extensive hands-on course is designed for the person who has experience in technical drawing or blueprint reading but has limited or no CAD skills. This is the core course for AutoCAD and a prerequisite for all other AutoCAD courses. Participants will learn how to create complete 2D drawings using AutoCAD's drawing, editing, display, dimensioning, and annotation commands. Topics also include drawing set-up and fundamental plotting techniques.
    Hours: 75
    Credits: 5

    DRWG1180     Applying AutoCAD

    Description: This course is designed to give the experienced AutoCAD user an opportunity to create technical drawings applying basic drafting techniques and conventions. The content is based on either mechanical or architectural applications (depending on the users needs). The primary focus centers on creating part (working) and assembly drawings that adhere to CSA/ANSI dimensioning and drafting standards. Assignments include Orthographic and Axonometric Projections, Sections, and Auxiliary Views. Topics also include practical system customization (command aliases/scripts/custom toolbar menus/custom linetypes), and examining other available add-ons and software to enhance drawing productivity.
    Hours: 40
