The A&E CAD Training Center was founded in 1989 by two professors from ACC’s Architectural & Engineering Computer Aided Design program who realized that Austin-area architectural and engineering professionals would need a resource for continuing education training as their firms began to integrate CAD technology into the design process.
Since 1989, our training center has provided CAD training to thousands of Austin-area design, engineering and architectural professionals. The AutoCAD Training Center, as it was originally known, offered daytime and evening AutoCAD workshops. Today, our course offerings include training in many other CAD applications from numerous software vendors. The center has the resources to tailor training to the needs of specific organizations and has delivered customized CAD training to clients located as far away as Japan.
With a student to teacher ratio of 15 to 1 or less, each student can receive plenty of individual attention in our instructor-led classes. Students receive a certificate from ACC at the completion of each class. In addition, students also receive continuing education units (CEU’s), which are required by many professional licensing organizations including the American Institute of Architects and Registered Professional Land Surveyors.
