AutoCAD Electrical Training Course: Fundamentals

This course covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD Electrical software. In this course, you will learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the software. You will create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, you are introduced to methods of customizing electrical symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include titleblock linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.

The main topics covered in this training course include:

  • Understanding project files
  • Creating and editing schematic and panel drawings
  • Working with PLC symbols
  • Creating custom symbols
  • Generating reports

Prerequisites for this AutoCAD Electrical training course: Before taking this course, students need to have a good working knowledge of the AutoCAD software and electrical terminology.
