1. Learn & understand CAD – Computer Aided Design requirements, importing CAD Drawings, basic floor plan, adding components in a facility design, connecting HVAC, and landscape.
2. Apply and associate learned processes when you manage a project in real life
3. Use visual CAD diagrams to apply in real life facilities management scenarios
4. Produce CAD design to view and markup by stakeholders
5. Laying Out Floor and Site Plans
6. Converting an Imported CAD Drawing, converting Multiple CAD Drawings
7. Customizing the CAD Conversion Process and Symbol Libraries into Stencils

Class Requirements
1. This is a in person onsite training.
2. Participants must have a laptop with Microsoft Visio 2016 Professional installed.
3. This class is for 21 hours of instruction.
