Level One Award in Computer Aided Design (CAD) Parametric Modelling

Level one is ideal if you are looking to work, or are just starting out, in the field of manufacturing or engineering design and need to gain skills in CAD. 

The emphasis is on 'learning by doing' and for this reason candidates are required to complete a number of assignments. These show candidates' attainment of practical skills, which imply their understanding of the knowledge required.
