CHIEF ARCHITECT:

Sorry, we no longer offer training courses in the use of Chief Architect software. However as we are still using the program for all our architectural design and draughting work, are prepared to sell copies of our current templates for you to use. Set up for producing A3 size drawings, our templates are customised to provide the maximum productivity and ease of use when producing residential schemes and consent drawings.
   
We will also help you finish a plan you may be having difficulty with.

ZWCAD / AUTOCAD LT :

Although we rarely use AutoCAD these days, we are happy to provide tuition and support to anyone new to the software or simply wanting a few answers to their immediate questions. We are considering resuming our popular two-day intro courses as an on-demand basis. Please enquire if you are looking for tuition or need some assistance with a current project and we'll discuss whether we can help you.
 
Taught in a generic manner to appeal to users from any discipline, this course introduces the concepts of 2D draughting using AutoCAD software. Drawing and modifying tools are introduced through the construction of simple shapes. The creation of a dimensioned print layout is also covered.

For more advanced users of AutoCAD LT we introduce productivity tools and explore options beyond the basics, useful for users with limited experience who want to extend their knowledge.
