Autodesk AutoCAD Electrical with NFPA Standards

( Duration: 3 Days )

The AutoCAD Electrical with NFPA Standards training course, covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD Electrical software. In this course, you will learn to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the software. You learn to create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, you are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical software symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include title block linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.

By attending AutoCAD Electrical with NFPA Standards workshop, delegates will learn:

  • Understanding project files
  • Creating and editing schematic and panel drawings
  • Working with PLC symbols
  • Creating custom symbols
  • Generating reports

  • A working knowledge of the AutoCAD software and electrical terminology.

AutoCAD professionals, Electrical Engineers and Designers using AutoCAD Electrical with a Windows operating system.
