AutoCAD Electrical Fundamentals

AutoCAD Electrical Fundamentals IEC covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD Electrical software. In this training course, students learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools.


This hands-on training course allows students the opportunity to create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, students are introduced to proven workflows, methods of customising AutoCAD Electrical software symbols, circuits, and databases. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent of the course is to allow students the opportunity to participate in the use of the core drafting tools, workflows and concepts.

Delivery Mode
Traditional Instructor-led group training
3 consecutive days (09:00 - 16:30)

An A2K Technologies “Certificate of Attendance” will be issued on completion of the training.

An Autodesk® Official Training Guide is provided as a Reference Resource at the conclusion of the course

Course Objectives
On completion of the course, students would have been given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of commands and concepts that develop the skills necessary to be able to:

  • Navigate the AutoCAD Electrical user interface
  • Manage projects and the multiple drawing and inter-drawing relationships contained in electrical projects
  • Insert wires, add wire numbers, manage circuits, and create point-to-point wiring diagrams and drawings
  • Insert and annotate schematic symbols
  • Edit drawings project wide with commands that are specific to the electrical design environment
  • Extract information from drawings to create Bill of Material, Wiring, and other reports
  • Create and annotate panel layout drawings with lists of components that are extracted from schematic drawings and with other specific panel layout tools, such as the Terminal Strip Editor
