Which AutoCAD Courses Can I Learn in 3 Weeks?

As 2020 nears its end, markets seem to be healing at a steady pace. If things go right from here on, job opportunities may finally open up, and professionals can begin chasing their goals again. Before markets open up, it is important that professionals bring their best skills to the interview table. This is possible through industry-relevant online courses.  

Many professionals in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry may have faced or are still facing a certain amount of downtime in their projects. If this is taken as an opportunity for growth, professionals starting out in the AEC industry can acquire new software skills. This way, when projects start coming in, professionals can bring their best software skills forward and deliver much more than their expected potential in their assigned projects.  

Autodesk Authorised Training Centres (ATCs) have designed short-term architectural drafting courses online to help individuals learn AutoCAD 2D Architecture from the comfort of their homes. Grey Edge, an ATC, has designed 3 short-term video-led online training courses in AutoCAD 2D Architecture. These courses include a soft copy of theory notes, online practical sessions with the trainer for answering course-related questions and offer practice tests to grasp the course content in detail. The three online architectural drafting courses are:
