The AutoCAD Course is formulated into 3 levels to address learners with different competency on using AutoCAD and to provide and/or improve their technical knowledge and drafting skills. The courses aim to simulate the workplace environment where the trainer will play the role of a senior professional to hand down the practical experience to the juniors and mentor them to prepare for potential jobs in engineering fields and ease the painful learning curve at an early stage.   Each level equips students with practical drafting and design skills likely required in those positions as well as foundational understanding about drafting processes to allow further development at later stages of their career on their own.
