New York Institute of Art and Design Launches New AutoCAD Certification Course

The New York Institute of Art and Design has just launched a brand new AutoCAD Certification Course. This is the eighth course offered by NYIAD, the world’s premier provider of online education in the creative arts.

The AutoCAD software program, offered by AutoDesk, is the leading computer design platform for interior designers, architects and engineers. It has long been recognized as the industry standard for computer-aided design.

The New York Institute of Art and Design’s AutoCAD Course will teach students how to effectively navigate the software. Students will gain access to an educational version of the AutoCAD software, where they can follow along with lessons and practice what they learn during the program. The NYIAD course will guide designers through an easy-to-use ebook that covers everything from locating and identifying key features of the software, to drafting and rendering projects using symbols and placements recognized in the industry.

In addition to completing the course, students will have the option of signing up for AutoDesk’s AutoCAD Certified User designation. For an additional , students can access practice tests throughout the course and qualify to take the certification exam offered by Certiport upon graduation from the NYIAD program. Students who pass the exam will then become AutoCAD Certified Users, an industry-recognized designation that will help set them apart in the interior design field.

“NYIAD has always prided itself on offering the highest quality interior design training online,” said Jacob Boller, NYIAD’s Director, “and now we can add to that a program that teaches students the latest in computer-aided design and drafting.”

Students in the AutoCAD Certification Course will also get the same great student service people have come to expect from NYIAD. Every student will be paired with a design mentor who is there to help them through the program, answering their questions and evaluating their projects on the path to graduation.
