Introduction covers days 1, 2, and 3. 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.

You’ll be well on your way to gaining an industry recognised Autodesk ACU certifcate to boost your CV.

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 not to pass this time, we’ll provide a certificate of attendance so you’ll still have something to show for the training.*

*Mock exam and official exam is taken in the Intermediate course (part two).

Can I Attend the Full 5 Day Course in a Week?

YES! We do offer the full 5 day ACU course in one hit! This includes the 3 day introduction and 2 day intermediate which also includes the practice exam and full exam.
