How Much Do AutoCAD Training Classes Cost?

It all depends on How Many People Need Training... Just yourself? Or, have a group?


Instructor-led AutoCAD training is more expensive compared to e-learning and video based courses. However, it is by far the most effective when trying to learn AutoCAD because you are able to ask questions from a live expert AutoCAD instructor, interact with fellow students and perform hands-on exercises. Our rates are in line with other computer training companies and allow us to employ instructors that have the high level of experience we demand to teach our students. The benefit of getting specific answers about AutoCAD that you have cannot be matched when taking an e-learning or video based class. All of our courses are instructor-led.


How much an AutoCAD class will cost depends on how many people you have needing the training. Just like with other services, the more students you have needing to learn AutoCAD, the less the cost per student will be.


Individuals/A Few People

Averages a few hundred dollars per day


When you have just 1 person needing AutoCAD training or a small group, we offer either in-classroom or live online training options using our remote instructor-led method. When our class schedule lists a city name, that means you can attend in one of our training rooms. Live online means you can attend from your home or office. Both are instructor-led We fully believe the best learning method is from a live instructor.


Our AutoCAD classes utilize lecture and hands-on exercises to reinforce lecture points and ensure you are really learning what is being taught. Classes are offered at least once per month and sometimes more often.

You Have a Group

Averages 25% - 40% less than individual prices


When you have a group needing to learn AutoCAD, then onsite training at your office is definitely your best choice. By sending one of our AutoCAD instructors to your office you can eliminate travel costs for employees and get a fully customized class based on your specific topical needs. We’ll create a course on AutoCAD specific to what you need your employees to learn. Because you have a volume of students you’ll enjoy highly discounted training rates from our individual pricing. How much a group onsite class will cost largely depends on how many students you have, so requesting a custom quote is necessary.
