Course Overview

The AutoCAD Electrical Fundamentals Training course, covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD Electrical software. In this course, Participants learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the software. Participants create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, Participants are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical software symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include titleblock linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.
