This is an ideal course if you are on an interior design course but they don't teach CAD, as it's becoming an essential tool whether you are an interior designer or architect. Maybe you are a property developer and are finding yourselves working with CAD drawings more and more and need to know how to change things and print them off or email plans or also design your layouts yourself. The 3D element of the course will aid in showing your client exactly what they are getting before you begin the project.
At the end of the course, you will have the knowledge to draw a plan from scratch, change things from other drawings, plot and save and it's a great way of getting you up and running quickly.
