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.

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.

    It was truly a pleasure to read the well produced manual and learn from the excellent video tutorials. I will be taking a full certificate program based on the professionalism and superior knowledge displayed by Kevin Brown

    I was looking locally for a facility to learn AutoCad which would best fit my timetable and wasn’t having much luck. While searching online I found CADDTrain and upon further investigating I found that the instructor was credited with setting up the Cad program at a local college. This convinced me that this was worth a try. I was still apprehensive as to how well it would work for me in this format and only purchased AutoCad 1 Basic on a trial basis. Within no time I was quickly learning the software and feeling confident I had made the right choice. The support and quick response time from Kevin was amazing. The lessons are well laid out both thoughtful and logical. Having completed Level One I know this is the way to go for me and am now looking forward to moving on to Level Two

    Before I began this course, I was a little apprehensive about learning a new skill in this format and committing myself to a company without a storefront. In order to relinquish my reservations, I called to ask questions. Hearing a real person, who was courteous and helpful, had prompted me to take the risk. I enrolled for the entire set of courses.

    After completing the first course with CADDTRAIN, I can assure you that Mr. Brown is very methodical in his teaching style and approach to the subject matter. He answers questions in a reasonable amount of time. I have found him to exude professionalism and to be genuinely interested in the success of his students.

    CADDTrain has put together an excellent program. Handouts, step by step instructional videos, lots of practice drawings, asssignments and an instuctor there to answer questions. I am getting a LOT out of this training and am really enjoying it. Money very well spent!

    At first AutoCAD seems so complex, but this course does an excellent job of simplifying everything. This has been by far the best program that I have used. The DVD’s are easy to use and even better they are easy to rewind and watch over. Any time that I had a question the response was very quick and easy to understand.

    Work required me to learn AutoCad 2D so I could be trained to program our CNC router. After checking on line at a variety of course options, I narrowed it down to 3 courses. After checking out each course training method and cost, I decided on CADDTRAIN and have not been disappointed. I started with no experience with AutoCad. I have watched people work with it and thought how hard AutoCad was and thought it would be difficult to learn. Kevin has done an excellent job on the DVD’s and his method of teaching works well. The only mistake I made is I purchased the basic package with out the support and it showed in my work. I am now in AutoCad – 3D Modeling and have upgraded to the support package and it has made all the difference.

    Excellent tutorial. I took classes in a formal university situation. This was much better because you can stop the tutorial and play the instructions again and again. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning AutoCad well.

    The DVD lectures were clear and easy to understand, and it was great to be able to receive e-mail support when I had questions. So nice to be able to learn on your own timetable!

    My name is Thomas and I just recently finished Autocad 1 – Basic 2D as the first part of the Master of AutoCAD certificate program I ordered from CADDTRAIN. Having come into this without any previous knowledge of AutoCAD I can say this was an excellent course. Exactly what I wanted in a training program. Kevin start’s the first lesson explaining the basics of AutoCAD itself, the initial setup, the basics of the toolbars and working space, everything you need to know to begin. Each lesson after that works on a single concept, and builds up from the previous lesson to reinforce what you’ve already learned. Since the lessons are on dvd’s it’s easy to replay any parts that you’re unclear on the first time through and be sure you’re doing things properly, which you can’t do in any formal classes. Because of that, the concepts and practice came suprisingly quick for me as I progressed. By the end of the first dvd I was taking on the practices and assignments using just the course material, using the dvd guide as a check up of my methods and results compared to Kevin’s example

    The course was extremely helpful. I would recommend taking the Master of AutoCAD certificate program. While i’ve only gotten through the first course, if the rest of the coursework reflects the first it’ll be a certificate well worth my time. Kevin, is a very knowledeable and helpful instructor that makes the lectures easy to understand. The DVD’s are just as helpful especially since you can go back to any topic. Having the DVD’s will be of great value even after the course is over, since I will always be able to go back and review a topic

  11. 5 out of 5

    This training program is highly recommended. Kevin definitely knows his stuff. One thing I feel worth mentioning here is that in addition to the understanding of the software you’ll get from this, Kevin also takes time to explain and demonstrate common mistakes made with the various tools as well as any program glitches and bugs that are out with the latest release of AutoCAD. You won’t see that in textbooks as it takes real world experience with the program to identify those.

    All in all I can say I’m entirely pleased with the course and I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking to build a skillset for a new career. I already have offers on the table I’ll be ready to take up soon thanks to this program! This is without a doubt the place to go for AutoCAD training.

    Celebrating the completion of the first course! I am able to work efficiently in AutoCAD from the lessons in AutoCAD 1. Great instructor, very fast response to questions, well laid out lesson plans, challenging assignments. This is a very good course. I highly recommend it to anyone who is out there trying to learn it on their own as I was. I have learned more in two months than I did in 5 years of fiddling with the program on my own. Can’t wait to get into the material in the higher level courses.

    After many searches I came across I purchased the dvd pkg for autocad 1. Presently I am on lesson 6 and thus far have enjoyed my journey with Kevin Brown and his school. The course is great for those involved in a very busy lifestyle as I am myself. It is well taught by Kevin with a break or two in comedy to lighten the load so to speak. AutoCAD can be a bit tricky understanding it on your own or when reading, however Kevin takes you thru it step by step in video format and you can’t help but succeed!!!

  14. 5 out of 5

    I’ve never done an on-line training course before, and i was amazed how easy it was. I took a Cadd class at my local college and i learned more in the first couple of lessons with Cadd train than i did in a month with the college. I’m looking forward to starting the next level.

  15. 5 out of 5

    I enjoyed taking this interesting and well designed course. Kevin’s subject knowledge is excellent, as are his presentation skills. The exercises build on and reinforce the skills you learn, which is critical to master this powerful, but complex tool. Well worth the price!
