Training Courses For Draftsight

Draftsight training

DraftSight is a free alternative to AutoCAD. It can do almost as much as AutoCAD, without the 3D. It can be used to create and edit 2D CAD drawings in .dwg (AutoCAD) format so is a good alternative for smaller businesses. As standard we offer an introductory course for Draftsight, however for intermediate or advanced training please enquire.

All Draftsight training courses are instructor-led at your site or scheduled (contact us for more information) and include PC Hire, course notes and exercises PLUS six months' post-course support. All courses can be customised to your needs at no extra cost.
