Sourcecad student

"Courses I had completed are very comprehensive covering everything that I need to get started using AutoCAD. The course will give you the knowledge you need to be more productive with the software immediately. The lessons are well-guided teaching you AutoCAD using a step by step workflow."

Sharon Anne Clark

SOURCECAD STUDENT

"I used SourceCAD as a supplementary practice to my AutoCAD college course, but I found it to be a much better way for me to learn. The videos are clear and methodical, and I was able to practice on my own schedule. After four months of intensive practice, I took and passed the AutoCAD Certified Professional exam."

Roland Gosselin

SOURCECAD STUDENT

SourceCAD helps me to learn CAD in my spare time and in a very simple manner. The way the modules are made I can absorb the information at a steady pace and the instructor gives pieces of information in such detail you are not able to miss anything. The quality of the videos is superb and lets no misunderstanding appear."

Heinz Neutzner

SOURCECAD STUDENT

“I don’t use AutoCAD in a professional manner, but I’ve been able to draw two complete houses using the software. Without the learning from the courses, I would not have been able to complete these tasks. It’s fun and easy, I particularly like that the lessons are short and can be done quickly.”
