AutoCAD Electrical Training Fundamentals Course

AutoCAD Electrical AutoCAD Electrical training fundamentals course

The AutoCAD Electrical Training Course covers the core topics for working with electrical schematics. You will learn the basics on electrical schematic creation (e.g. point to point and ladder logic), wire numbering, PLC’s, symbols, panel drawings, tagging, etc.

The setup of AutoCAD Electrical is also covered with such topics as how project files work, linking title blocks, templates and reporting.

In terms of administration, the course also covers customisation of the database, symbols and circuits.

Course Length: 16-Hours
