Course Description

AutoCAD Level 1 provides you with a basic working knowledge of the AutoCAD program as you learn to create, print and plot drawings using the latest version of AutoCAD software. Emphasis is on using the software tools and understanding concepts and techniques you need to use and be productive with AutoCAD. Even at this fundamental level, AutoCAD is one of the most sophisticated computer applications that you are likely to encounter.

The teaching strategy is to start with the basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools introduced throughout the course.
