AutoCAD Fundamentals Certificate

Our AutoCAD Fundamentals Certificate covers all aspects of two-dimensional (2D) computer-aided drafting and design in AutoCAD. This AutoCAD certificate also introduces three-dimensional (3D) modelling concepts so that you have the opportunity to build a sound understanding of the software. The three required courses are intended for anyone involved in the production of technical drawings, from those in architecture- and engineering-related fields to those doing interior design.
