An instruction booklet (to keep) can be purchased for an extra cost of £12.50, this will help to guide you through some of the more difficult tasks. There is no formal entry level qualification; however a good appreciation of operating a PC is expected. Some students will already be practising and working as CAD technicians and wish to develop their existing CAD skills or alternatively be working to become technically qualified.
