A Guide To CAD Software Training

Whether you’d prefer a remote workshop or a bespoke course built around unique business needs, here’s how CAD software training can help.


AutoCAD software is the most advanced toolset that modern designers have at their disposal. But with a range of different packages – from AutoCAD Mechanical to AutoCAD Electrical – and almost limitless features, CAD software training is the best way to tap its full potential.

What’s the best way to learn AutoCAD?

There’s no ‘wrong’ method for learning AutoCAD. If you have the time, research skills and work ethic, you can get to grips with the basics of this intuitive design software under your own steam. But when it comes to the deeper features of AutoCAD, and the subtleties that lift a project to the next level, CAD software training is invaluable.

It’s important to note that CAD software training doesn’t come in just one format. At Cadspec, we encourage our clients to learn AutoCAD using whatever approach works for them. Some prefer to zone in on the core features of a particular package, choosing our Essential Skills course in AutoCAD Mechanical or AutoCAD Electrical, for example, and mastering user interface, editing commands and more. But that’s not the only option.

How can bespoke CAD software training help with specific skills?

If you’re further along your AutoCAD learning journey, or have company-specific training needs, then our bespoke CAD software training is ideal. Pick and choose the areas that suit you – whether that’s AutoCAD Architecture Styles, for example, or Autodesk Inventor Studio – and our expert trainers will make these the foundation of your personalised AutoCAD course. Whether you choose the minimum booking requirement of two attendees – or turn your entire team into AutoCAD masters – this option puts you in charge.

Where can I take an AutoCAD course?

Cadspec has always offered face-to-face CAD software training, whether you attend our centres across the UK – from Bristol To Leeds – or choose the onsite option that means our expert will visit your own workplace. But with the pandemic proving that remote learning is every bit as effective, we’re also pleased to offer online CAD software training: simply log into Zoom and learn from the comfort of your own home or workplace desk.

How quickly can I learn AutoCAD?

Mastering AutoCAD is an ongoing process: the more time you spend with this open-ended software, the sharper your design work will become. But with Cadspec’s training experts at your disposal, getting to grips with AutoCAD happens faster than you think. To give you an idea of timescales, a typical training day itinerary runs from 9.30am to 5.15pm, while the programme for our online AutoCAD course is from 9.30am to 4.30pm (including breaks).
