*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.


Program Description

Certificates are awarded to students completing the course pattern with a 2.0 QPA or higher. Courses may be taken in any sequence as long as the prerequisites are met. The CAD certificate program prepares students to work as computer-aided drafters/designers in industry and to upgrade the skills of persons presently employed as drafters in a relatively short academic period by including only CADD and supporting courses. Course work completed in the CADD certificate program is fully applicable to the CADD Associate of Applied Science degree.

The AutoCAD Operator certificate option prepares students for entry-level positions as AutoCAD operators, technicians, and detailers.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. construct and plot multiview drawings at designated scales;
  2. utilize AutoCAD as a precision drafting tool; and
  3. create, use and extract attributed blocks for use in spreadsheet and database programs.
