AutoCAD Certification Jumpstart

Learn AutoCAD and Get Certified as an Autodesk Certified User. This career enhancing accreditation is included in the cost of your course.

On this intensive AutoCAD Jumpstart course, you’ll learn all of the basic commands necessary for professional 2D drawing, design, and drafting using AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. You’ll also learn about the features, commands and techniques for becoming more productive when creating, annotating, and printing drawings with AutoCAD.

Hands-on exercises throughout the AutoCAD Training course explore how to create 2D production drawings. The exercises are provided in both a printed format as well as an on-screen format that can be viewed next to AutoCAD.


This AutoCAD Training course is designed for new users of AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. This is for delegates who would like their AutoCAD experience to be proven with an official certification from Autodesk.

Assumed Knowledge

You’ll know about drafting, design, or engineering principles although this knowledge is not essential it will be helpful.


You’ll learn to navigate the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT user interfaces, use the fundamental features of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, use the precision drafting tools in AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT to develop accurate technical drawings and present drawings in a detailed and visually impressive way.

You’ll learn how to use the powerful tools and techniques for drawing, dimensioning, and printing 2D drawings.
