Civil 3D for Surveyors

“Taking a course where the instructor truly knows and understands the software is a pleasure rarely ever experienced these days. And it only gets better when he gets the message across to the students. Job well done, thank you. I'm looking forward to the next two sessions.”

- Marc Bricker, Bricker and Associates, Inc.

Survey drafting in AutoCAD Civil 3D has a reputation of being far more difficult than it actually is. You don’t need to work with external databases and Field can handle all your drafting using basic Civil 3D features. From initial Point import, Point Groups, Descriptor Keys and all the way thru surface creation and linework drafting, this class will show you the simplest methods of generating accurate Survey basemaps.


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.  

Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2021. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.

Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 48 consecutive hours. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
