AutoCAD® MEP 2013 Training Course

(now includes the AutoCAD 2013 Essentials Series)
A full-featured AutoCAD MEP training course covering beginner to advanced concepts, and everything in between, for Autodesk's AutoCAD MEP 2013 with 161 individual video tutorials and over 12 hours of instructor-led training.

Follow along as your instructor, David Butts, covers the essential concepts and guides you through the process of accurately creating and modifying 2D and 3D geometry that represent MEP engineering components; applying intelligent data to objects such as HVAC, electrical, plumbing and piping information; and using 3D models to more quickly and efficiently create and produce construction documents.

This training package includes 2 courses:

  1. AutoCAD MEP 2013 Training - 12 Hours
  2. AutoCAD 2013 Essentials Training (for beginners)

This training covers the following areas:

  • Getting Started | Schematic Drawings | Spaces and RCPs
  • Modeling an MEP System | Electrical Systems | Analyzing Systems | Detailing
  • Annotation | Construction Documents | Project Management | Style Manager
  • Display System | Content Development

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.
