Tim is an amazing instructor. I was intimidated by AutoCAD, but he was able to make such daunting software highly approachable. Tim is wonderfully friendly, and I would love to take classes from him again.

This class was great!! the instructor, Robert Buzzard, was a great professor and would highly recommend him to anyone. He has much passion for the subject and is always happy to assist with any problems his students have. Should I take another class by Certstaffix, I would hope to learn under Robert once again.

The secluded environment is nice. Easy to focus.The instructor was great!(BUZZ) Very good teacher, understanding, patient, answered all of the questions(even those that weren't part of the curriculum)Buzz very clearly showed his support in our interest in learning more than we needed too. He answered every question.I plan to take at least one more course through certstaffix in the future. If Buzz is not the instructor I'll be very dissapointed.

Jeb W. - attended our AutoCAD Essentials class
The instructor was amazing! Wishing he could teach a course through this program for Revit
Haeli P. - attended our AutoCAD 2016/2017: Essentials class
The instructor Robert demonstrated a huge acknowledgment about the program and was great answering all the questions. Besides that he was friendly. The class content was great. It's a lot of information for 3 days in-a-row but with practice it will be fine. I do recommend the class and I will do the next level eventually.
Ana C. - attended our AutoCAD Essentials class
The instructor made the course current and really help with problems. Most instructors in this area seem to blow right past important steps because they are so use to the program. I will definitely request my instructor for the advance level course.
Fred W. - attended our AutoCAD 2016/2017: Essentials class
The instructor (Buzzard) was super educated and experienced in this field and we learnt a lot. I mean in two days from not being able to correctly move the mouse I can create an internal wall. How amazing is that! Thank you!

The areas covered were general. Understandably everyone uses autocad for different fields. Some of the useful information for what I use it for were not covered very deeply. Some chapters were of no use at all. I will use the book to review these chapters. Mr. Buzzard is a great teacher who creates a comfortable and easy going class atmosphere. Always asks if anyone has questions and is willing to explain things further with detail if time permits.
Matt R. - attended our AutoCAD Advanced class
Robert Buzzard was a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. I was surprised with his punctuality yet his attention to each students questions was remarkable. I have been resistant to online courses for a long time and this was my first attempt. Instructor "Buzz" made this one of the best instruction experiences I have ever had. I look forward to taking additional classes with Mr. Buzzard.

Robert Buzzard (a.k.a. Buzz) is an excellent instructor.

might need to be a 4 day course to get enough practice drills for those inexperienced with AutoCAD or CAD from their work place

A: When working toward AutoCAD certification, you'll have your choice of two credentials: the basic AutoCAD Certified User and the advanced AutoCAD Certified Professional. Both certification levels require that you pass exams and prove proficiency with the software. Though rigid prerequisites aren't needed to enroll for certification exams, hands-on and real-world experience with AutoCAD can be required to pass the exam. For some, the best way to learn AutoCAD can be through instructional courses, which can help students pass the certification exam the first time that they take it.
More Information on AutoCAD Certification: What Is it, and How Do You Get Certified?
A: A CAD, or computer-aided design, program is a piece of software that allows people who design, draft, and build projects to generate 2D, 2.5D, or 3D models before they commence work. AutoCAD is a specific piece of software created by Autodesk that incorporates CAD principles and technology into its features and functions. Many different types of professionals, including architects, civil engineers, and interior designers, can use both AutoCAD and other CAD programs to create models of structures and items. How these programs are used can be influenced by the industry to which a professional belongs.
More Information on Who Uses AutoCAD and What it's Used For
A: AutoCAD, the most popular computer-aided design (CAD) software on the market, is a staple for those who create professional 2D or 3D models and designs, but it’s a complex tool that can’t be mastered overnight. Learning AutoCAD can be an intensive and lengthy experience, especially for a novice, and taking training classes can shorten your learning curve. Those who intend to obtain the Autodesk Professional Certification in AutoCAD should plan on taking advanced prep courses and use the program for at least 400 hours before attempting exams.
More Information on How Training Can Help You Become a Certified Professional in AutoCAD
A: To expedite the process of learning AutoCAD, employees should first familiarize themselves with basic computer-aided design (CAD) concepts. Although some individuals consider the AutoCAD software intimidating, others find that with a little time and commitment, mastering the program is possible within a few months. While many avenues for professional training exist, including colleges and union locations, online courses can offer the fastest method of learning for most. Some accelerated online training courses are designed to teach AutoCAD skills in as little as a couple of days.
More Information on How to Learn AutoCAD Quickly.
A: With CAD training, employees can obtain jobs in the aeronautics, electrical, civil engineering, mechanical, and architectural industries, among many others. Earning an Autodesk Certified User (ACU) or Autodesk Certified Professional (ACP) certification can help people qualify for jobs as diverse as drawing up blueprints for auto parts, designing landscapes, or creating stage designs for music and theater performances. Individuals interested in obtaining an AutoCAD certificate should be pleased to know that national projections point to a steady availability of drafting jobs until at least 2028.
More Information on Entry-Level Jobs You Can Get With an AutoCAD Certificate.
A: An Autodesk Certified Professional is an individual who has expert knowledge and advanced skill in working with specific pieces of Autodesk software. Autodesk Certified Professionals often enjoy higher rates of pay than those who don’t hold any credential or are simply Autodesk Certified Users. Though the road to becoming an Autodesk Certified Professional can vary between individuals, many employees need a minimum of 400 hours of experience working with Autodesk software before taking the exam.
