Group courses at your own place of business

CAD seminars tailored to your needs


We talk together about how you use, or would like to use AutoCAD, to find out what you need, and adapt the training accordingly.

Clever saving

The trainer comes to you, meaning reduced costs – and your team is available before and after the actual training session.

Top efficiency

You learn in your familiar working environment, on your own device and with your own team.

Subsequent support

After the course is over, you are not left on your own – get in touch at any time, at no extra cost!

Save money with on-the-job AutoCAD courses

Calculate what it costs your company to pay for travel expenses, meals and, if necessary, overnight accommodation for all employees? Add to that the costs for lost work time and, if necessary, replacement. With us, only the costs for the trainer are incurred and your employees are available up to the last minute before the AutoCAD course session.

Analysis before each AutoCAD course

In an ordinary training course, as much knowledge as possible is imparted, whether you need it for your field of work or not. However, we work with you before the AutoCAD course to determine what you really use in your work environment. This guarantees you maximum use of the teaching time for exactly the areas you use. It doesn’t get any more efficient than this!

Remembering what you have learned much better

Learning in a familiar environment on your own PC makes internalisation much easier. We maximise this by putting commands and controls into practice with examples and drawings from your everyday work. This means that the AutoCAD course group really knows how to put what they have learned into practice afterwards.

Also there for you after the AutoCAD course

Have you ever felt lost with new software even after the training? We won’t leave you out in the cold afterwards. We are there for every question, no matter how ’simple‘ it may be, and will help you quickly – at no extra cost!

AutoCAD courses for your company

Do you want to learn AutoCAD from scratch, or are you already familiar with it and only need help in certain areas? With us, you don’t have to go through everything. Choose specifically what you need – why pay for a complete course and waste precious time when you don’t need it at all?

We are flexible and happy to adapt to your schedule if possible. Are you ready to start in the morning? For most people, mornings work best. Or is it simply too busy in the morning, and you would rather do your AutoCAD course later when it is quieter in the office? You tell us what your situation is, and we will make it possible!

Alternatively, if you are interested, have a look at our flexible AutoCAD training online!
