AutoCAD Level 1
Reviewed by Dianne C. on 10/10/2019
This course was GREAT with an amazing teacher, I highly recommend it. AutoCAD is such an intimidating program but Joe D was able to articulate everything you needed to know so well that it put me at ease. The pace of the class was great, he made sure to ask questions that kept you thinking while keeping you engaged. Joe mentioned he'd been teaching AutoCAD for 30+ years but after three days I could swear he birthed this program, that's how deep his knowledge goes. What truly impressed me was how he seems to know everything about CAD and is still wants to know more. E.g. I had mentioned I was going to be using AutoCAD for Mac and he even asked if I could just let him know what the differences are. Wow That's an educator! I'm eager to learn more from him and so I've just signed up for the next Level 2 course I can take.

I really loved this class! As someone who has long been intimidated by CAD, I was so pleasantly surprised to pick up so much, so quickly with the help of our instructor, Joe D. Joe is hilarious, smart, and the boy does the man KNOW CAD! I don’t mean he understands it, he knows the software inside and out, buoyed by 30+ years of using it in professional and academic settings. He teaches in a way that helps develop skills and techniques that are marketable because he also teaches to professionals in the “real world”. He has fun teaching, which means you have fun learning, which means you learn a lot. Simple as that. This class is 110% worth it. Highly, highly recommend.
