CAD School

By: Jason Gluckman

A CAD school will teach you the basics and guide you through the features of CAD software, but it will not necessarily enhance your design abilities.

CAD schools will normally provide you with a CAD Primer. This describes what CAD is, what it can do for you, and how it is best used; introduces hundreds of common terms used in CAD; illustrates the concepts of working with CAD using a number of exercises; and introduces a number of advanced techniques and shortcut methods used by professionals. It may also contain a comprehensive listing of leading CAD programs and important CAD resources on the Internet.

Learning CAD is not limited to adults; even kids these days can learn with the more user-friendly interfaces these software manufacturers have employed in their systems, which were once quite complicated. In CAD, it is not always the knowledge of technique that gets you through a project but paying attention to pragmatic design and details.

You can locate CAD Schools anywhere around a city, but most architectural and engineering schools include a course in Computer–Aided Design in their curriculum. Most collegiate curriculums in Design revolve around CAD software. These software programs provide them a "For Education Version" in which students can to learn with the aide of an instructor.

Each of these computer-aided design schools will teach the latest techniques and utilize the newest software available according to the software provider, and each will teach a different style in a different approach. It is suggested that a concerned student ask for information from several of these computer-aided design schools to find the right program for his or her style of learning. Information is available at no cost from these CAD training schools.

A course in Computer-Aided Design will normally take six months to one year, depending on the specialty you are geared to undertake, the pace of instruction, and efficiency in your skills and level orientation.
