Where are you located?

Our training classrooms are located at McGrath Executive Suites, Level 5, 115 Pitt Street, Sydney – near Martin Place in the Sydney CBD. Only a few minutes walk from Wynyard train station.

Onsite training:

We also train onsite. We come to you and travel to all areas of greater Sydney.

For onsite training, do we need a computer training room?

No, it’s not 100% necessary, although a separate room is preferable. We can work on laptops or desktop computers, PCs or Macs. Training works best if the participants are at least sitting near each other, rather than spread out in a big room.

For onsite training, do we need a projector?

No, it’s not essential, although it’s good if you have one. Or an HDMI TV screen.

Do I need previous experience of the program?

Not at all. We train from complete beginners to intermediate levels. Most of our clients are complete beginners.

Do I need to buy the software first?

No, you can download the free trial versions. Then decide whether you want to buy the full version or do the monthly subscription. Adobe software is available from www.adobe.com, Autocad is available from www.autodesk.com and SketchUp from www.sketchup.com.

Do you offer support after the course?

Yes, we do! If you have any questions or problems using the software, just phone or email us. Take-home course notes are also provided for all training courses.

When do I pay?

Training courses must be paid for in advance.

Which versions of the programs do you teach?

AutoCAD training: We train any versions from early AutoCAD (eg. R12) to the latest 2015 release. Although earlier versions do not have the full functionality of later releases (especially in the area of 3D modeling), the basic drawing and modifying features have not changed much. We teach the standard AutoCAD (and AutoCAD LT) program, but not specialised versions such as Civil, Mech, ADT, Revit or Inventor.

SketchUp training: We train on the latest Pro version but most of the features are available on the free Make version.

Adobe training: We train any versions from CS (Creative Suite) to Adobe CC (Creative Cloud).
