Lambton College launches AutoCAD program

Sarnia, ON, August 31, 2011 - North American industry is built on drafting and design and Lambton College is offering a new program that will prepare students for this important field.

Starting this fall semester, Lambton College will launch a new AutoCAD program and instructors are thrilled to be a part of this new offering.

“The main thing I am excited about with this new program is that completion of the program now rewards successful students with a Board of Governors Certificate,” said Paul Vandenberg, Lambton College AutoCAD instructor. 

The AutoCAD program was designed to provide training in all aspects of computer-aided design (CAD) drawing and will qualify graduates for various positions within the industrial, manufacturing, landscape, civil, mechanical, architectural, electrical and geographical engineering sectors.

Vandenberg believes the program will address the needs of entry-level and experienced designers.

“Entry-level designers in any field that uses AutoCAD in the design process and students who wish to pursue a career in the design field, will benefit from taking this program. Experienced designers in many fields such as mechanical, landscaping and construction who may be utilizing AutoCAD for the first time, or who have a lack of basic training to efficiently utilize AutoCAD will benefit from this training” said Vandenberg.

The program will utilize current technologies and students will acquire the skills needed to set up, design and produce detailed technical drawings in a mutli-dimensional environment. These skills will be enhanced through hands-on and online learning.

Registration for this program is underway. For more information on this program, visit, e-mail or call 519-541-7751 ext 3626.
