Overview of the AutoCAD Online Training Course
Join one of our live AutoCAD classroom training sessions as a remote student over the internet. Our online training courses are ideal for those who find it difficult to travel to our training facilities. You will attend a classroom training which takes place at one of our training centres with real instructors and students without leaving your home or office. You will have the opportunity to interact with your instructors, ask questions, follow demonstrations, hear and see your fellow students just like you would if you were physically in the classroom. It’s exactly like being in a classroom, without the cost of travel and accommodation. Plus the cost of the online training is lower than the traditional classroom training courses. You can attend the following Autodesk AutoCAD courses as an online student: AutoCAD Beginner, AutoCAD Intermediate, AutoCAD Advanced, AutoCAD Fast Track Silver and AutoCAD Fast Track Gold.

HOW IT WORKS
Using a dedicated technology, we link you to your scheduled AutoCAD training course as it takes place live at our training facilities. Traditionally, a training day starts at 10am and runs until 4:30pm, which is when you need to be in front of your computer. You will be following your instructor’s monitor as the demonstrations take place, you will then practice what you’ve learned on your own computer. Along the way, you will be able to interact with your instructor, ask questions as well as take part in discussions during the training. If you get stuck, your instructor can take control of your mouse and show you the right way of completing a specific task.

The Online Autodesk AutoCAD courses are live and interactive.

PREREQUESITES
Almost all modern computers nowadays will have sufficient technology for the live training courses. However, to ensure you get the most out of your online training experience, there are a few things to keep in mind. In order to attend one of the AutoCAD courses as an online student, you need to have a decent broadband connection (a connection that’s good enough for a traditional HD video call will suffice). You will also need a pair of headphones or speakers as well as a microphone. 

Although not compulsory, you are advised to have a dual-monitor setup. Ideally, you would be following your instructor from one monitor and use the other monitor to practice the tools you are taught. As an alternative, you can use a single monitor and split it into two sections. 

You will need to have either the full version of Autodesk AutoCAD or a free trial installed on your computer for the duration of the training. 

DOCKLANDS MEDIA PROMISE
As an online student, you have the same level of benefits as our traditional students. We are committed to providing you with the best possible Autodesk AutoCAD training experience, be it online or in person. That’s why we have a number of options to make the whole training process more manageable and put your mind at ease. Simply put, we want ensure that you actually learn AutoCAD inside out. All you need to do is to focus on the learning part, rather than worrying about the small details. We take care of those. Here’s how:

Otherwise, you can just come and resit the same course to refresh your skills.

Tailored Training
If you are working on a specific project, or would like to learn a certain aspect of AutoCAD, we can arrange a Tailored Training course for you. Our highly skilled advisors sit together with our Autodesk Certified AutoCAD instructors to create a custom course outline for you, based on your needs. We then can prepare the course, which can be run at our training studios in London or online, as well as your own premises both in the U.K. and abroad. We’ve trained individuals and companies from more than 25 countries worldwide.
