Autodesk AutoCad


The AutoCAD® Electrical Essentials with IEC Standards training course covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD® Electrical software. Students learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the AutoCAD Electrical software. Students 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, students are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include titleblock linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.


It is highly recommended that delegates have a working knowledge of one or more of the following: drafting, design, or engineering principles and Microsoft Windows 7, 8 or 10 operating system.
Proficient in AutoCAD or have attended the AutoCAD Essentials course.
