CAD Technical Drawing Drafting & Planning Skills Course


Drafters make product and building ideas a reality. They create the working drawings used in the fast-paced product, building, and subdivision development. Chemeketa's drafting technology program prepares you for these jobs with training on the latest software, such as AutoCAD, which is essential for earning a CAD certificate.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in drafting are expected to grow by nine percent. Increased construction and the need to improve the nation's infrastructure should add to the demand for drafters, especially those who have completed comprehensive CAD training or auto CAD training.
