AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Essentials – Part 1

Total Hours: 24

The objective of AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT Essentials training course is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in AutoCAD. All topics, including features and commands, relate to both AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT unless specifically noted otherwise in the training guide.


This training course covers the essential core topics for working with AutoCAD. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are also introduced throughout the training course. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts.

Topics Include:
  • Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface 

  • Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools 

  • Organizing drawing objects on layers 

  • Inserting reusable symbols (blocks) 

  • Preparing a layout to be plotted 

  • Adding text, hatching, and dimensions

  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology.

  • A working knowledge of your operating system.
