AutoCAD and Revit

AutoCAD and Revit are widely used CAD software. AutoCAD is used primarily as a drafting tool, while Revit is primarily used for building information modeling (BIM). GTCC’s AutoCad and Revit courses may be useful for those in construction, manufacturing, and logistics, and may also be of interest to those in computer software or graphics and design.

Until further notice, AutoCAD/Revit courses will be conducted in-person following current COVID-19 requirements for mask wearing and social distancing. Class size is limited to 12 until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, GTCC offers a series of three AutoCAD and Revit courses in the most current software.  The three courses are intended to be taken in order to build CAD skills from introduction toward 3D drawings. Autodesk 2020 software is used in GTCC computer labs. 

AutoCAD Basics & Productivity – DFT 3100

Do you have design ideas doodled on napkins?  Maybe a project assignment that requires a more professional document?  Or do you want to update your AutoCAD skills?  AutoCAD Basics & Productivity is the first course in the AutoCAD/Revit series.  Your instructor will cover basic AutoCAD terminology, functions, applications and techniques for improved efficiency and productivity.

Recommended prerequisites:  Basic skills in computer keyboard, screen navigation and file management, and familiarity with drafting concepts.

AutoCAD Intermediate – DFT 3100D

AutoCAD Intermediate is the second course in the AutoCAD/Revit series.  You will move forward with the templates built in AutoCAD Basics & Productivity, and focus on orthographic and isometric drawings.  You will practice additional AutoCAD skills utilizing the 3D basics and 3D modeling tools.

Recommended prerequisites:  Completion of AutoCAD Basics & Productivity is strongly recommended as a prerequisite for AutoCAD Intermediate to continue working with templates and exercises carried forward from that course.

Autodesk Revit Productivity – DFT 3100A

The third course in the series includes advanced CAD design training with Revit 3D software including CAD file management, productivity and CAD customization skills.  Develop advanced proficiency techniques by creating floor plans, incorporating building materials, creating and uploading families, and understanding BIM concepts. 

Recommended prerequisites:  Completion of AutoCAD Basics & Productivity and AutoCAD Intermediate continuing education courses are strongly recommended due to the skill building nature of the series.  Have a good understanding of building materials, terminology and use.

A textbook is not required.  The instructor will provide handouts.  You will want to bring note taking tools with you, and you will need a 4 GB (minimum) flash drive to save your work between class meetings.

AutoCAD/REVIT students may be eligible for no-cost Autodesk Student Software. You must have your course payment receipt to order the software. If you do not receive a receipt at the end of the registration process or by email shortly after, please contact us at or call 336-334-4822 Ext. 57003 for assistance.
