AutoCAD Civil 3D Fundamentals - PLUS

This course covers the core topics for working with AutoCAD Civil 3D. The teaching strategy is to start with the core tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the fundamental 2D drafting tools and concepts. PLUS - Students then have access to self-paced E-Learning which guides them through some more advanced commands.



Civil 3D SectionsThis course is an introduction to the principles of Civil 3D.

On completion of this course students will have been given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of commands and concepts that develop the skills necessary to demonstrate competency in the fundamental areas of Civil 3D includnig:

  • Understanding of styles and user interface.
  • Understanding of key concepts and components.
  • Understanding of basic workflows for design and production.

Delivery Mode

In a new approach to learning AutoCAD Civil 3D, we have put together a combination of Instructor-led and Guided E-learning to maximize your learning experience and reduce the amount of time out-of-office.

Course Contents

Phase 1 – Instructor-led Training
Topics to be covered during the Instructor-led phase of the course will be taken from those below. Not all topics will be covered during training but are contained in the E-learning Phase. AutoCAD Civil 3D Interface…Parcels Overview…Subdividing Parcels…Parcel Reports, Annotation, and Tables…Civil 3D Survey Toolspace…Civil 3D Surface Overview…Civil 3D Survey Figures…Civil 3D Surface Editing…Civil 3D Surface Labels and Analysis…Civil 3D Alignments…Alignments…Alignment Properties…Labels and Tables…Data Sharing Overview…Grading Overview…Configuring AutoCAD Civil 3D Grading

Phase 2 – Guided E-Learning
Civil 3D : The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Civil 3D features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced components. Every course is designed to use all learning styles from text, audio, video, interactivity, quizzes and practical “Let Me Try” examples. Civil 3D : The Complete Guide has been carefully structured not only to give you the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful Civil 3D user, but also to prepare you for the Autodesk Certification exams. A certification icon on the “Let Me Try” tasks will alert you to areas that are especially relevant to Autodesk Civil 3D Professional Certification.
Topics: Navigating the AutoCAD Civil 3D User Interface…Leveraging a Dynamic Environment…Establishing Existing Conditions Using Survey Data…Modelling the Existing Terrain Using Surfaces…Designing in 2D Using …Alignments…Displaying and Annotating Alignments…Designing Vertically Using Profiles…Displaying and Annotating Profiles…Designing in 3D Using Corridors…Creating Cross Sections of the Design…Displaying and Annotating Section…Designing and Analysing Boundaries Using Parcels…Displaying and Annotating Parcels…Designing Gravity Pipe Networks…Designing Pressure Pipe Networks…Displaying and Annotating Pipe Networks…Designing New Terrain…Analysing, Displaying, and Annotating Surfaces…From Design to Construction


Login details for Global e-Training will be provided following the Instructor-led training.
Access to Guided E-Training for 12 months


An A2K Technologies “Certificate of Attendance” will be issued following the 2 days of Instructor-led Training. An Autodesk “Certificate of Completion” will be issued on successful completion of the E-Learning course
