Plotting an Upward Career Path with an AutoCAD Distance Learning Program

Aug 17, 2007
An AutoCAD distance learning program is a significant development both within and beyond the rapidly growing Engineering design segment. Until some time ago, the use of Autocad was only for hardcore engineering, but now, many new avenues are opening up to it's use, including interior design, furniture design and other areas including fashion, automobiles and utilities.

AutoCAD Distance Learning

Autocad has wide ranging applicability and has been successfully used for years by professionals around the globe making it essential for designers in any field. Distance education is the best option for working professionals to hone their skills in Autocad.

While choosing your AutoCAD distance learning program, firstly, make sure that the institution is authorized by AutoDesk the makers of AutoCAD. Secondly, you must make sure that the institution has enough technical expertise for the courses and the specialty you are looking for. For example, an institution reputed for mechanical engineering may not be the best place to study fashion or furniture. Thirdly, the study material should be comprehensive enough to give you a complete understanding of the subject without the help of experts. Lastly, the institution should preferably offer contact programs at regular intervals to fill-in the void between teaching and learning.

The technology of distance learning is important when projects are planned and executed in separate geographical areas. It allows drawings and designs to be shared over the internet. This enables teachers to re-design or refine student designs without the need to be physically present. Autocad seamlessly integrates with the internet allowing premier institutions to offer off-site support.

Institutions Offering AutoCAD Distance Learning

There are many institutions offering an AutoCAD distance learning program, both over the internet and through postal education. Professional institutions counsel students based on their background for the best available options.

Penn Foster Career School is one of the pioneers offering an AutoCAD distance learning program, with online learning options. Clacakamas Community College offers training in various levels of AutoCad. Both these places are good options for students seeking distance education. Other schools like the Community College of Rhode Island, which has campuses spread across the USA and James Town Community College are best for working professionals. Globalwide Network Academy is an online training forum that offers a common platform to learn and share all about AutoCAD.

Choosing the right institution for distance education in Autocad and some dedicated effort will help you to plot a northward career graph in design.
