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:

After attending a classroom, private or online AutoCAD training course with Docklands Media, you will have free access to our extensive online training video library for seven days. At the end of this period, you can continue to watch the training videos at your own pace by becoming a member for a small monthly fee. All of our online training videos are produced by our instructors in partnership with digidemy.com
Attend in Person or Online
You can choose to attend your AutoCAD training course either in person, or as an online student. If you would like to attend in person, you would physically be in the classroom where the training takes place. The training sessions are held at our centrally located Canary Wharf training studios in London. If you wish to attend the training from your home or office, you would be connected to the same classroom over the internet and follow the exact same class as you would do in person. You would be able to see and hear your instructors as well as their monitors and ask any questions, like you would if you were physically there.

Once you complete your AutoCAD course, you can come back and attend the same training session(s) that you’ve completed to within 24 months. This is especially useful when a new version of AutoCAD is released, and you would like to retrain on the most up-to-date version of the software. Otherwise, you can just come and resit the same course to refresh your skills.
After your AutoCAD training, you will have access to our email and telephone support for a lifetime. You can contact us for any technical questions related to what you’ve learned on your AutoCAD course. We aim to get back to you with an answer within one business day.
