Tired of spending thousands of dollars and losing countless hours of billable time trying to get the level of proficiency and speed you need from your design staff? Given up on getting any tangible results after sending your staff out to training centers for weeks on end?

 

ZenTek understands your frustration and we’ve developed a unique training program, specifically for those working in the AutoCAD Civil 3D environment. We host affordable web courses that your staff can attend right from their own desk, to reduce downtime. We present the material in short, easy-to-digest bites they can put to practical use on your billable projects the moment class ends. ZenTek’s Skills Development system breaks the complexities of Civil 3D design down into single topic classes, so you can have your staff attend them all, or just the topics that relate to their personal job and training needs. Each class taught by James Coppinger, a civil industry noted speaker, trainer and thought leader with 30+ years of experience in the design world.

Pressure Pipes in Civil 3D – The Full Design Process

Few tasks in Civil 3D inspire as much confusion, or frustration, as trying to develop a pressure pipe network. While Pressure Pipes have been around for years, they have a reputation of being difficult to work with and many firms have completely avoided them, opting instead to “fake it” with gravity pipes, or just plain 2D drafting on their plan and profiles. This class is designed to show you that Pressure Pipes are a viable and efficient option for your water, gas, and other pressurized pipe designs. The instructor will lead students through the full process of plan, profile, and section layout and editing of a Pressure Pipe Network from initial layout to completion. 

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.

Residential Site Design in Civil 3D – Final Design

Completing a Final Site Design for a residential project is no small task. It requires much more than basic Civil 3D skills. It requires advanced knowledge for refining surfaces, handling intersections and other complex road conditions, along with detailed section and volume controls. This course focuses on helping students understand, and actively apply, the most commonly misunderstood, and under-used Civil 3D tools on a practical Residential Site Project. Fine tuning the initial site design for accuracy and detail is the capability that will take you from CAD user to Civil Designer.

This eight (8) hour program is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
