Getting Started in Civil Site Design

$495 per person (in the US and Canada) 

Civil Site Design is the most powerful civil/site design tool on the market today and it works inside Civil 3D, BricsCAD, and even basic AutoCAD. This course will take new users of Civil Site Design through the most common processes they need, to unlock levels of productivity they’ve never had before. We will cover the entire site design process in Civil Site Design, from import of survey points, through building 3D surfaces, grading, road design and development of underground utilities. Civil Site Design processes will make your job far simpler, provided you know how to properly use them to get the time savings you need.

​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 AutoCAD Civil 3D 2023, and that version is recommended for all students, but the processes are compatible with BricsCAD and AutoCAD.
