Landing a good job that requires CAD skills:- A personal one to one training solution from On-Site-Support (CAD)
CAD jobs are usually well paid. That s because CAD operators often produce As fitted drawings which show installation work done for an employer s customer, which then justifies an invoice and payment. There s a natural wish for these employers to retain and employ skilled CAD operators.
It s not easy to get a job interview
Employers can be faced with 000 s of CV s for a CAD job vacancy.
Most CV s will mention a CAD training certificate of some kind.
How do employers view CAD training certificates?
Judging by comments from employers I speak to, when providing nationwide CAD In-House CAD training, not favourably. Indeed some don't trust certificates at all so will ask for a CAD skills test during a job interview.
To those applicants who maybe have a maths qualification, would you still be able to recall how to solve simultaneous equations? Do you recall all the major dates from a history course?
Indeed in some cases a CAD certificate could lead an employer to have unrealistic expectations from a training course provided during a probationary term of employment.
It won t be easy to face the full complexity of an employer s CAD work, after a basic training course attendance, with just the typical 30 days of email support.
How do employers view job candidates with current CAD skills? Favourably.
Current CAD skills help a CV to stand out from the crowd.
There may be backlog of urgent CAD drawings, holding up invoice payments so a CAD skilled person could be welcomed.
With current CAD skills a probationary employee would pass through a CAD course with flying colours.
That would be a fantastic start to a CAD career which could easily progress from well paid 2D to very well paid 3D CAD.
How do you get current CAD skills?
Everyone learns at different speeds so some may be left behind on a well attended public course.
We believe that it s important to practice basic CAD skills during our course to improve skills retention.
An aspect which is often lacking in topics based CAD courses due to time constraints.
You can have remote one to one training, with a full manual posted to you
2 days of one to one remote training where I can see your computer screen via professional remote connection software is £745+vat. (£894)
I highly recommend 12 months of enhanced support (T & C s apply) at £75+vat (£90)
That can include many practice PDF files taken from actual CAD work in various industries.
You could build a portfolio to show your skills of to an employer.
