What will CadLearning Courses do for me?

In today's highly competitive world, organizations and individuals need to stay on top of their game. Our CADLearning DVDs empower users to:

  • Increase productivity by providing lessons and courses that improve competencies, enabling more to be accomplished in less time.
  • Maximize the quality of their work. CADLearning lessons keep users up-to-date on the latest design software, sharpening the skills and expertise that drive better results.

Gain better control of time management by offering lessons that are:

  • Easily accessible from home or office, minimizing disruption from daily work.
  • Repeatable as often as needed to assure full understanding and retention.
  • Self-paced with real-world examples taught by industry experts.
  • Easily assess skills and measure competency gained through benchmarking against peers and competition.
  • Evaluate and pinpoint areas where improvement is needed.
  • With hosted eLearning Centers, corporate users can even tailor learning around identified areas of weakness.
  • Prepare for Autodesk Certification Exams.


With offices located in different parts of the world, we needed a way to provide continuous training, documentation and tutorials for anyone who needed them, anytime, anywhere.
- Vincent Poon, CAD/BIM Manager, Kohn Pederson Fox Architects.

CADLearning is advantageous for all skill levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced alike. You pay only for what you need. You get what you pay for as many times as you need it, whenever you need it.
- John H. Backensto, SFC, US Army (ret).

We needed a way to vary the learning experience and make it available anytime, anywhere. We use our CADLearning site in the classroom as a different way of presenting to our students. Then we take it to the next level, allowing students to log on and continue learning - anywhere in the world and whenever they need it (Network Version).
- J.C. Malitzke, Dept. Chair, Computer Integrated Technologies, Moraine Valley Community College

"I would just like to say Thank You for offering such an informative and easy to use training solution. As a project manager with no formal training in Autodesk Architectural Desktop, I have found your training videos to be just what I needed to understand the various tools included in the program. The step by step techniques shown in your videos is just what I needed to start being productive with the software. Actually, your training program showed me things that I did't even realise the program was capable of. With the help of your training video, I'm able to see a return on my investment in the software. I have your product installed on my laptop so that it goes where I go. It is quick and easy to reference your training video sections as I'm working on a project. I'm currently budgeting more copies of your training solutions so that each of our operators have it available on their workstations. Thanks again for a great product."
