AutoCAD Course 1 – Detailed Description
The goal of our Introductory, online AutoCAD course is to enable you to quickly and easily feel comfortable with creating all types of 2D drawings.
This level one, introductory 2D AutoCAD course begins with an exploration of the AutoCAD interface. Students will learn how to access commands, repeat and cancel commands, and how to use the AutoCAD help system. Several practice drawings will be created using the basic drawing and editing tools such as Line, Circle, Arc, Rectangle, and Erase. Steps for creating and saving new AutoCAD drawing files, opening existing files, and backing up files will also be taught in the first lesson.
As the level one AutoCAD course progresses, students will learn how to draw accurately with all of the 2D drawing and editing tools while creating increasingly complex drawings. Procedures for working with AutoCAD drawing views and setting up sheets for plotting will be discussed in depth. In the next phase of the level one AutoCAD course, students will learn how to organize their drawings and control object properties such as colors, linetypes and lineweights through the use of drawing layers.
The final lessons in the level one AutoCAD course, teach student how to add all types of notes and dimensions to their drawings while following accepted industry standards for professional drawings.

AutoCAD Course 1 – Support and Evaluation
Basic and Premium Support and evaluations are available for this course.
Both of the review packages we offer allow for grading of your assignments, and a course transcript letter with an official grade for the course.
With the Basic Review package, you will go through all 12 lessons for a course, using the video demos and course handbook to guide you. You will create 4 assignment drawings which will be sent to your instructor in a one-time submission at the end of the course. The assignments will be reviewed, redlined, graded, and returned to you along with a PDF version of your transcript letter within 24 hours.
With the Premium Support package you receive up to 90 days of email assistance with your own instructor, allowing you to ask questions while you go through the lessons. Assignments are submitted one at a time as you go through the course instead of in a single submission at the end. In addition, if an assignment is not perfect on the first try, your instructor will send you a detailed email indicating what is wrong and how to fix it. After making the necessary revisions, you can submit the assignment for a second review. This process can be repeated one more time allowing for up to three reviews of each assignment. Premium students usually finish the course with a perfect grade and more importantly, a perfect set of drawings to add to their portfolio.
When you are going through the Premium Certificate Program, you will be in constant contact and communication with your instructor via email. At the end of each course, an official school transcript letter is sent to you in PDF format. This contains the course and student details along with your grade for the course in both percentage and letter format.
