This level 3 AutoCAD 3D course builds on the Level 1 and 2 courses to teach students to use AutoCAD to create 3D drawings.
Created by industry experts, students learn by doing actual drawings with our live in classroom instructors. Students are taught many commands and tools to create drawings fast and easy. Our instructors will make sure no one is left behind.
Students will learn the fundamentals of 3D Solid Modeling. When students complete this course they will have the knowledge to create, layout, and edit three-dimensional geometry.
All courses are live instructor-led. If you have a group of employees looking for AutoCAD training, call us for customized quote. We offer great discounts and onsite training for groups of two or more.
If your goal is to learn AutoCAD from great instructors without breaking the bank this course is for you.
TIA is looking forward to welcoming all students back to our classroom in our Manhattan, Hempstead, and Arlington locations in August. Starting on August 3rd we will be holding in-person classroom training with limited seating for most of our management and technology courses.
