Course NameSummaryDate 2019
AutoCAD | EssentialsThe objective of the AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Essentials course is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in AutoCAD software.
The Essentials course covers core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to continue to develop those tools. he intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts and then continue with more sophisticated techniques such as learning how to create blocks and drawing templates.
