Are you ready for a career in CADD?

If you’re a visual learner who likes working with computers, our CADD classes can set you on your new career path. Here are just a few of the skills you could learn in one of our CADD programs:

  • CADD Technology: This program will teach you how to turn architectural and mechanical concepts and designs into computerized drawings. Learn how to create the 2D and 3D drawings (parametric modeling1) that are used in construction, product manufacturing and engineering. You’ll learn how to generate plans for structural, functional, and decorative features of residential, industrial, commercial, or public structures and buildings. And most every product—from microchip to monster truck—requires the kinds of drafting and design skills you could learn in our CADD classes.
  • Hands-on Training: At PCI, you’ll learn by doing, working with the same quality software that is used out in the real world. You’ll work with programs like AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Revit, and you’ll also learn the fundamentals of design, construction and manufacturing so that you understand the practical application of what you are doing in the classroom and on the computer.
  • Job Outlook: Today, everything seems to be generated on a computer before it moves into production. That’s why your newly acquired skills could be such an asset in the job market. There are so many industries that rely on CADD technology!
  • Soft Skills: In addition to honing technical skills, you’ll learn what it takes to be a professional in today’s business world. We’ll teach you what it means to be a good employee in a real world setting.
