New online AutoCAD course

 Lone Star College-CyFair’s Jonathan Cortez  is taking computer-aided drafting to a new level offering the first online Continuing Education (CE) AutoCAD course in the Lone Star College System.

Students interested in the Drafting CE program at LSC-CyFair are learning the AutoCAD software from Cortez, who has earned two nationally recognized certifications - AutoCAD 2009 Certified Professional and AutoCAD 2009 Certified Associate. 

This engineering instructor teaches all levels of AutoCAD from editing and plotting of line drawings for architectural, electrical, circuit, mechanical, or interior design in the introductory courses to creating two- to three-dimensional drawings in the advanced courses.

And now in addition to the drafting courses that combine lecture with hands-on drawings on the latest CAD, solid modeling, and technical illustration software, Cortez has created an online option for students.

“We are very proud of Jonathan, both his accomplishments and his dedication to our students,” said Dean of Social Sciences and Applied Technology Jo Fey. “His course creation will make it possible for more students to take AutoCAD.”

Among the benefits of the online introductory class is the ability for students to repeat material they may not have completely grasped the first time through, said Fey.

This new online AutoCAD class, which begins March 16 and ends April 8, is part of a three- course AutoCAD Workforce Certificate program offered at LSC-CyFair, said Janet Taber, Continuing Education Program Manager for the Social Sciences and Applied Technology division.

“Students taking this workforce certificate program can enhance their skills or prepare for a new career,” said Taber. “All three program courses -  AutoCAD Introduction, AutoCAD Intermediate and AutoCAD Advanced - will be available online this summer.”

For registration information, call 281-290-5220.
Various programs using AutoCAD software are also available across the LSCS. For information, go to LoneStar.edu.
