Investing time and money into mastering computer aided design (CAD) programs
needs to be done with the confidence that they are the right ones for you.  
Dip a toe in the waterand try both Vectorworks and SketchUp.  
The merits of each and how they can complement each other will be
demonstrated and you will have a chance to try both.

The purpose of the day is to allow users to make an informed
decision on which programs suit their needs.
CAD training courses
Computer aided design training (CAD). Vectorworks and Sketchup courses are taught by Nick Williamson an experienced tutor who also works in the industry. Having taught for for several years  at various colleges throughout the UK he has now  put together  computer aided design courses that he feels are optimised to ensure that the student will successfully use the program professionally to the level they have attained on the courses. More importantly they will also have the confidence to explore aspects of the program that
they would otherwise avoid!
