AutoCAD® MEP 2015 Training Course

(now includes the AutoCAD 2015 Essentials Series)
A full-featured AutoCAD MEP training course covering beginner to advanced concepts, and everything in between, for Autodesk's AutoCAD MEP 2015 engineering design and drafting application with 170 individual video tutorials and over 13 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 complete construction documents.

This training package includes 2 courses:

  1. AutoCAD MEP 2015 Training - 13 Hours
  2. AutoCAD 2015 Essentials Training (for beginners) - 15 Hours

This training covers the following areas:

  • Getting Started | Schematic Drawings | Designing with Space and Zone Objects
  • Modeling an MEP System | Electrical Systems | Analyzing Systems | Detailing
  • Annotation | Construction Documents | Project Management | Style Manager
  • Display System | Content Development | Autodesk 360 Online Tools

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.
