A full-featured AutoCAD training course covering the basic skills needed to get you up and running with Autodesk's AutoCAD 2015. In 240 individual video tutorials and over 15 hours of instructor-led training, David Cohn teaches the essentials skills needed to use AutoCAD for creating two-dimensional drawings. New users of the software will become familiar with the Drafting Settings, Display Controls, Managing Layers, Object Properties, Utility and Inquiry Tools, Complex Objects, and Modifying Objects using manipulation and alteration commands.

As a flexible CAD training solution, you can sort the lessons and progress from beginner to advanced topics; or just review seldom used commands and added functionality of new releases.

TESTIMONIAL:
"This tutorial is awesome! I've been trying to learn ADT on my own, and with some incorrect advice from others trying to learn on their own. My frustration has completely subsided and I have started a new project with confidence and ease. It took me about a day and a half to get through the 'beginner' portion of the DVD and now I'm actually building an intelligent set of dwgs. With the DVD, if I forget how to do a command, I simply click on that lesson again and then I can move-on. I give it an A+."
