HydraCAD for Autocad training

Class Description:

This class will cover HydraCAD drawing tools and utilities, 3D risers, system elevation for coordination. We'll also use AutoCalc to generate hydraulic calculations, and AutoList to generate material stock lists.

Our focus will be on how the Hydratec programs function and how to use them effectively and efficiently by taking advantage of shortcuts and built-in automated tools. Little time will be spent on sprinkler theory.

Training Includes:

  • 1 live one hour preparation session
  • 5 live, 2½ hour on-line sessions
  • 1 additional live session for follow up and Q&A
  • Access each recorded session
  • Quizes and/or reviewed homework assignments
  • Access to the material presented in class for review and practice

Recommended Prerequisites:

  • HydraCAD for AutoCAD and some familiarity with HydraCALC and HydraLIST
  • Some sprinkler design experience
  • Basic understanding of NFPA standards

Registration ends Friday May 6th at Noon.
