Course description

CAD for Beginners

On this course, you’ll learn the basics of the computer programmes needed for effective 2D and 3D design.

Programmes taught will include AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Solid Works.

It's a course that is very useful for designers and professionals working in 2D and 3D who have had little design software experience.

It can also support other studies, if you feel your CAD skills are in need of a boost.

To attend this course you must understand basic computer functions and file navigation – this is not a course suitable for absolute beginners.

During this course, you will:

  • produce technical drawings and measurements in AutoCAD
  • render sketches and produce presentation boards in Photoshop and Illustrator
  • learn 3D CAD modelling in Solid Works
  • work on your own projects as the course progresses.

During class times you’ll be taught the basics of each programme, with tasks and activities to complete with support from the tutor.

You can then practice these activities further between sessions, so it’s important that you have access to a computer and can download the software at home or work.

What will you gain?

The course will give you the skills and confidence to create professional-standard visuals for your work or your portfolio.

"Really enjoyed the course, thank you. Sarah dealt with the groups mixed level of ability extremely well and tailored the course content to individual requirements. I'd certainly recommend the course to others." NB

"Absolutely outstanding. The best course I have done in years. I've learnt so much." RA
