The Advanced Architectural Drafting Application ROA program combines AutoCAD and Revit - the two main computer-drafting applications in the industry - into an advanced ROA. It provides a full scope of both applications in drafting and 3D graphic presentation, along with the design skills needed in the preparation of architectural, engineering, and construction projects.
This program is designed to teach the necessary CAD drafting applications found in the industry, particularly within the architectural/engineering field. It will provide students with an advanced understanding in both the AutoCAD and Revit applications, from introductory- to advanced-level knowledge, as well as architectural drawing, 3D modeling, drafting conventions, and standards.
Courses also may be taken individually for skill enhancement.

National Occupational Classification (NOC) - Government of Canada
The National Occupational Classification (NOC) provides a standardized language for describing the work performed by Canadians in the labor market. It gives statisticians, labor market analysts, career counselors, employers, and individual job seekers a consistent way to collect data as well as describe and understand the nature of work.
Students must have:
Recommended Basic Computer skills/Basic Drafting Fundamentals
This course is an introduction to 2D AutoCAD, in which students learn basic AutoCAD fundamentals, including basic draw and modify commands, drawing setup procedures, layer setup, dimensioning, and plotting. Students gain hands-on experience using AutoCAD's drafting tools.
Recommended - ATC111 or an introductory AutoCAD course or equivalent industrial experience
In this course students prepare building models and are introduced to all phases of the building process from conceptual design studies to the creation of construction documents and schedules
ATC711 - Revit Architecture 2016 - Fundamentals
In this course students expand on the knowledge and skill acquired in "Revit Architecture - Fundamentals". Students prepare more complex 3D designs and create advances construction documents.
The course introduces students to the software's interface and basic HVAC, Electrical and Piping/Plumbing components that make the Revit MEP software powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool. Students become familiar with the tools necessary to create and document a complete parametric model. The practices are designed to take the student through the basics of a real world project, from linking an architectural model to an MEP template to using Revit MEP tools to design HVAC, electrical, plumbing and piping systems to create complete construction documents.
The objective of AutoCAD Essentials ROA is to introduce students with a complete overview of the AutoCAD program from introductory to advanced methods in 2D and 3D environments and concepts.
Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:
Upon successful completion of the program requirements, please submit a Request for Recognition of Achievement Form to the Faculty of Continuing Education and Training. There is no cost for this and your Recognition of Achievement will be mailed to you.
