This course provides you with technical skills related to interior design and, most importantly, the application of computer-aided design within the profession.
It’s an ideal opportunity to enhance existing interior design skills, and is perfect if you’re new to CAD and want to add this valuable knowledge to your work and CV.
During the three days, the various practical elements will give you an understanding of the key skills required to bring a project together.
The step-by-step processes will help you make informed design decisions based on the opportunities and constraints of a ‘live’ space.
What will I gain?
By the end of this course, you’ll have the skills and confidence to use design software in a creative way.
You’ll be able to measure a space and create plans, and produce 2D and 3D visuals that will meet the expectations of a customer or client.
