Intro to AutoCAD

Start the new year and new decade off right . . . . learn a new marketable skill. Join us for an 8-week class on AutoCAD.

AutoCAD is the de facto standard when it comes to designing and drawing in CAD in North America. It is used by more architects, builders, and engineers than any other major design application. Many of the functions and concepts learned by using the software can be directly applied to other CAD applications. This course will explore the fundamental operations of AutoCAD. It is intended for the beginner or novice user, and designed to give the student a strong working knowledge of the application and develop skills useful in a work-related setting.

The successful student will emerge from the course with the ability to draw annotated floor plans, building elevations, and construction millwork details using most of the major drawing tools and functions. The emphasis of this course is 2D drafting (future classes will address 3D drawing and rendering). Students are required to bring a computer with them to the course with a recent copy of AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. Email us if you want to take the course and do not have a computer to bring with you because we have limited supplies available. The tuition for this course is $300 per person.

The Instructor for this class is Gregory S. Cavanaugh. Greg has over 16 years of experience in architectural design and construction. He has worked for small and large architectural firms, national construction and design-build firms, and directly for owners of large porfolio properties. Most recently, he was Director of the Design Department for a commercial design-build firm in Newton, MA. He has experience in many building types, including hospital/medical, industrial facilities, colleges & universities, commercial office and retail properties, and high-end single-and multi-family housing. Greg studied architecture at the Boston Architectural Center in Boston, MA and Industrial Technology and Fine Arts at University of Southern Maine in Gorham.
