I would like to thank Steve and Jason for the AutoCAD training, i found them very helpful and it will help me in my job as a site engineer, it is a very professionally run course designed especially for site engineers and the course location is excellent…
– B KULICI

This course opened my eyes, I liked that you asked everyone what they wanted to use AutoCAD for and then made sure everyome was happy that they could complete their objectives before the end of the course. It was great that even though everyone said they understood you explained it one more time knowing that some people might be a bit shy about asking again, good facilities and good food …
– I AMARIEI

Very good course and very helpful, tutors where very professional and helped wherever it was needed, the course cuts out all of the stuff you don’t need and focuses on AutoCAD that you require as a site engineer, good facilities and easy to get to, would definitely recommend this course to other site engineers…
– J WILLIAMS

This course gave me a step forward in what a site engineer should know about using AutoCAD on site, Steve and Jason are great tutors and can help you become a better site engineer…
– F CONSTANTINESCU

This AutoCAD course is definitely applicable to site engineering, a lot to take in but very worth while attending…
– A AKURUKA

The course is taught in a way that is very clear and at a pace that everyone can follow, for a site engineer it is very relevant with lots of real world examples, I have learnt much more in the two days than I could have done from a general AutoCAD course, I would highly recommend the course to both site engineers and site managers of all levels…
– H HOBBS

The course is very well structured for site engineers, I would definitely recommend this course for engineers at any level…
– V I POPA

This is an excellent course, I learnt far more in the two days then I ever learnt from books and evening courses as it is tailor made for site engineers, Steve and Jason where excellent instructors….
– MANOHAR

The AutoCAD course provided by Grid Point has been incredibly helpful, I am now very confident on site when using AutoCAD and have become the engineer that everyone asks for when they need drawings rotated to the correct grid .. excellent value for money…
– SANTOS, LONDON

The course atmosphere was very friendly making it easy to learn, the instructors also had a Leica controller and where able to actually show us how to import, export and configure data as if we were on site. Thanks to Steve and Jason for a great two days…
– ALEX, HINDHEAD

I will be saving a lot of time on site now that I know how to use AutoCAD with my instrument, before the course I assumed AutoCAD was too complex and never had the time to learn it correctly as I was always too busy, I wish I had learnt it a long time ago as it would have made my site engineering a lot easier
– GREG, MITCHAM

The course has helped me realise how easy it is to extract setting out data from AutoCAD, I am looking forward to using AutoCAD for setting out, it will make my job so much quicker. One of the great things about the course is that Grid Point don’t assume you have any AutoCAD knowledge so everyone learns from the beginning. I have noticed that recruitment agencies are always asking me if I have AutoCAD skills know I can confidently say I have, the course is an absolute bargain
– PIOTR, LONDON

Excellent course and trainers who made time for everyone, thank you
– ABDI, LONDON

Everything I needed to perform efficiently on site, overlaying, scaling, rotating to grid and producing a drawing with a professional looking title block, very glad I attended
– JUNE, COVENTRY

Exceptional course, exceptional trainers, both Steve and Jason gave lots of input one to one including support after the course
– JOHN, READING

Very relevant to a site engineers needs, well taught and the trainers are very patient, would recommend to any site engineer
– JAMES, WESTCLIFF

In two days we covered the essential information required to use AutoCAD, the instructors where very helpful and patient, the small classs was also helpful and gave the instructors plenty of time to give advice and backup, feedback after the weekend was encouraged in case of any teething problems, this will be very useful

I don’t think it could be any better than it already is … very flexible and adaptable to the various scenarios put forward by engineers on the course, every effort was made to cover all bases
– MICHAEL, WOKING

Great course for beginners as the pace over the two days was just right, useful for somebody with some experience of AutoCAD as it will refresh learning and teach you to use cad in a more efficient way
– IAN, PORTSMOUTH

A fantastic course, takes an absolute beginner and makes them proficient in many of the operations that are required as a site engineer, great course materials including a manual that can be used for future reference, small classes and two instructors mean you get lots of one on one help, the trainers are fantastic, information is presented in a clear and concise way and support is provided after the course
– LACEY, LONDON

A well spent two days, I will be taking a lot of valuable knowledge away from this informative course, I would recommend attending Grid Point training courses if you would like to be confidant navigating your way around AutoCAD as a site engineer, also they provide excellent facilities as well as post course support ..“ altogether a fantastic package
– GARETH, WALES

Excellent training, very entertaining. After this training I..™m feeling much more confidant with AutoCAD and this will make my work a lot easier. What I really like about the course is that I learned exactly what I need to learn in AutoCAD as a site engineer. Steve and Jason are two great trainers and they really do a great job. I will definitely recommend the course to every site engineer I come across in my daily work, thankyou

The course helped me to remember the basics of AutoCAD as a site engineer as well as new things that will help me when working with a robotic total station, I would recommend this course to other site engineers
– E CLAUDIN-MARIAN

After the two days training I am very happy with the knowledge that was obtained regarding the use of AutoCAD with total stations and importing/exporting data. I must mention that although the course is only two days the chief trainer managed to cram in a lot of information, the study material and course content was very well organised
