 AutoCAD Certificate Program - CCC.ADCT.CAD - 15 Credit Hours

The CAD Certificate program educates students in the use and application of industry standard AutoCad 2014 software for the preparation of standard construction documents. Students learn how to create scaled plans, elevation, sections and detail drawings.

The course framework covers mechanical, electrical and architectural drawing formats. Included within the certificate program are technical courses covering basic construction materials, written specifications and building systems. Both residential and commercial size projects are studied. A manual drafting course is included to better prepare the student for computer aided drafting using CAD software.
