Course Descriptions
(ATC Fee-Based Courses)

NVC Logo
As an Autodesk Premiere Training Center, Autodesk certified courses are offered in CAD design software made by Autodesk.  In these concentrated industry modeled classes, students receive Certificates of Training from Autodesk for the various levels of training.  All Autodesk courses are taught by instructors who work in industry using Autodesk software so you are assured of receiving current, real world applicable training.

 
  
Fee-Based courses are no longer offered at this time due to a lack of awareness and enrollment.  As an alternative, the training you would normally receive in our Fee-Based courses has been incorporated into our DDGT semester long courses (18-weeks).  We are able to offer this to you at a cheaper cost with more reliability (the classes are rarely cancelled).  You will still receive all of the same benefits you would receive in the Fee-Based courses plus additional training and more time with time with your instructor!
