Highly recommended! They provide all of the fundamental concepts for AutoCAD that make the program seem less scary. I am definitely taking another course here if I ever have the need in my profession. If they offer packages for training on a program, take them! This company gives you a sweet deal for the price, on top of a guarantee policy that allows you to take a course again within the span of a year in case you missed something or did not fully understand a concept.

After doing research and considering in-person versus remote, I settled on these courses for me and my wife as well, and we were not disappointed. I am now confident I can jump in AutoCAD and go straight to work. Amazing what can be taught in three days!

Dan Perico is extraordinarily knowledgeable regarding the AutoCAD software and course material, and as a result of the small class size and his clear communication (both speaking and written directions within the books), he was able to assist each of the students whenever necessary and reinforce each of the skills. The experience was excellent not only because of the instructor's outstanding teaching ability, knowledge, and enthusiasm, but also because the condensed format enabled students to complete the course in a short time period (particularly appreciated). Location was also extremely helpful in its proximity to transportation within New York City.

Building on what is covered in the beginner course, this class helps students hone basic techniques while learning new relevant tools with an emphasis on how to solve common problems that will likely be encountered in a professional context; this class gives you what you need to navigate AutoCAD confidently.

This crash course was the perfect introduction to AutoCAD. Although fast-paced, the topics were explained well with attention given to helping students execute functions as easily and efficiently as possible.

I enjoyed taking AutoCAD classes here. The classroom is clean, the instructor is quite helpful and knowledgeable, and every question I had was answered.

I found this beginner's course to be thoroughly enjoyable. It managed to strike a balance between being fun and highly informative. Without a doubt, I would enthusiastically recommend this class to anyone embarking on their AutoCAD career journey.

I was tasked with learning AutoCAD for work, and so many of the offerings out there are overpriced and more theoretical than practical. These classes teach actual literacy within the program quickly, and in an intimate classroom setting.

Glad I took the AutoCAD Bootcamp. It helped me understand the software and how to apply it to any field of work/specific preferences.

Really loved this intro to design with AutoCAD. Going to be able to help out with my dad's business even more now!

Take this class if you want to learn AutoCAD seriously and if you would like hands-on experience with experts. The step-by-step instructions in conjunction with the one-on-one help in this small class allowed me to create a unique understanding of AutoCAD and how to draw all different types of drawings. It also allowed me to interpret and edit templates, and create and insert blocks. This course really helped explain the nuance of AutoCAD and why it is important for the industries that use it to do it right, and it shows how to streamline the productivity of the industry by avoiding the pitfalls of many self-taught and non-specialists who use AutoCAD to communicate designs.

Extremely satisfied with the class and instructor. I recommend this to anyone wanting to learn AutoCAD.

Very satisfied with the class. The instructor is hands-on, gives you many pointers, and takes you through a variety of material - giving you a real background in AutoCAD.

This class was a great investment. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone looking to beef up their AutoCAD skills. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and gave 1-on-1 attention for any problems that came up.

For the money, you can't come close to getting a better experience for your first time trying to learn this program. A true no-pressure and learn-at-your-own-pace experience.

I really enjoyed the class (Beginner AutoCAD) and the teacher was amazing and very helpful.

Learned SO much in such a short time. The instructor was very knowledgeable and explained it so that any level can understand.

Dan is phenomenal instructor and their AutoCAD book is definitely the best.


Overall, a great introduction to AutoCAD! Extremely knowledgeable instructor who encourages questions and is happy to spend time to ensure students are understanding the content. Be ready for a robust 3 days!
