AutoCAD Certification Training

Gain an industry recognised Autodesk certification by taking our AutoCAD Certified User (ACU) 5 day training class and exam. This course and accreditation will give your career and CV the big boost it’s waiting for.

A practice exam and official exam is also included in the 5 day training course. Whether you are a beginner or simply looking for a certification to prove what you already know, we believe this course is perfect for you.

You’ll start from the basics learning the essential skills of AutoCAD such as the preparation and delivery of 2 dimensional drawings.

Whether you have experience with AutoCAD or not, visiting the essentials will prove vital for the exam. We cover the missed gaps in self-taught knowledge so you are best prepared.

Why Should I Take the Training & Exam with Acuity?

We believe our AutoCAD experts will set you up in the best way for the exam across the 5 days of training. Here’s 3 reasons why:

✔Mock exam included with time set aside to revisit areas before the real exam.

✔Small class sizes with a hands on training approach = More questions & trainer attention.

✔Even if you are unlucky enough to fail this time, we’ll provide a certificate of attendance so you’ll still have something to show for the training.

What Will I Learn?

Introduction (Day 1,2 & 3)

Learn the essential skills of using AutoCAD for the preparation and delivery of 2 dimensional drawings.  By the end of this course, students will be able to create AutoCAD drawings, navigate the environment, manipulate AutoCAD objects and plot drawings.

Intermediate (Day 4 & 5)

The main objective of this course is to give users of AutoCAD a greater understanding 2D Engineering or Architectural drawing.

It is designed for people who are comfortable using the basic functionality of AutoCAD who would like to develop their skills further.

I Can't Attend 5 Days in One Go, Can I Split the Course Up?

YES! We are aware that it can be difficult to be available for the full 5 days in one hit! This is why we offer to split the course up in to two parts. Part one is 3 days  and covers the introduction topics of the course. Part two is the remaining 2 days which covers the intermediate topics as well as the practice exam and full exam.
