Autodesk Online Training | Anytime, Anywhere

As we all get accustomed to the idea of being productive working from home and given the absence of opportunities for in-person training, we thought we’d let you know of the opportunity for remote training through CADLearning, an Autodesk Authorized Publisher.

Benefits of Distance Learning

Design firms can provide this as a resource for their team during upgrades to the latest Autodesk releases each year. Managers typically leverage CADLearning content for new-hire training and assessment, and to bridge skills and knowledge gaps of team members. Our goal is to deliver comprehensive content that helps customers utilizing Autodesk products sharpen their skills and be more productive.

We know that in-person training is a core part of many companies’ training programs, including Microsol Resources. We believe is a great opportunity to teach and reinforce what we like to call your “special sauce” – those processes, workflows, and best practices that are specific to your organization. But, before the in-person session, how do you know that everybody comes with the prerequisite knowledge they need to thrive? And after, how do you reinforce that learning and ensure that it is retained?

Work Remotely

CADLearning provides online access to thousands of video lessons for more than 40 Autodesk products including Revit, AutoCAD, BIM 360 products and many more. This is a good vehicle that includes videos, exercise files and assessments that design firms provide this as a resource for their team during upgrades to the latest Autodesk releases each year.
