Have you ever noticed that the objective of most introductory AutoCAD Civil 3D classes is to educate on all areas of the software and not on the specific tools you need? If you work in a public works organization and want to learn AutoCAD Civil 3D, then this is the class for you. ZenTek Consultants will help you fully understand the tools you’ll need to build projects in-house and to review or update submitted projects from outside consultants. We’ll cover how to complete roadway and utility projects in Civil 3D, construct a collaborative model, and integrate design elements from various disciplines into one cohesive design.
This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2023. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.
Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 7 consecutive days. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
Must attend all four sessions.
