Course description

Autodesk Fusion 360 Essentials

3-day Live Online, accredited introductory course. Online training lets you join a live training course from your place of work or home.

This 3-day Autodesk Fusion 360 Essentials course aims to provide new users of Fusion 360 with the essential knowledge required to design 3D parametric parts and assemblies.

This training employs lectures, demonstrations and hands-on practice to give delegates a comprehensive understanding of the principles behind parametric design, as well as the skills to use Fusion 360 to create and amend production-ready parts and assemblies.

Our approach to Online training

When you attend Live Online Training with Armada, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time. 

You can:

  • See and hear our trainer and other remote delegates participating in the training.
  • Allow our trainer and the other remote delegates to see and hear you (if you have a webcam, and you’re agreeable).
  • Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
  • Share your screen with our trainer to show them what you’re seeing.

Your experience will be as close as is possible to actually being in the classroom…

  • The training will follow the same syllabus, and will be hosted by the same Autodesk Certified Instructors (ACIs), as our classroom-based courses.
  • We’ll post you a training guide, and send you all the information you need to participate in the training. We’ll even post you a headset and microphone if you need one.
  • You’ll carry out exercises using the software you’re being trained in, assisted by our trainer. If you don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
  • You'll receive an e-certificate from Autodesk confirming successful completion of an accredited course, and be entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

Brilliant course and instructor. I feel like I have earned a huge amount in just 3 days and I'm looking forward to practicing further and putting my new skills to use.

Carl was absolutely fantastic! He was so knowledgeable and explained Fusion 360 clearly and effectively. I would highly recommend this course. I really do feel like I have learnt a lot over the 3 days. Thank you Carl!
Kerr S
Great course. I really enjoyed the course, and definitely learned loads about using Fusion 360 for a wide range of tasks. The trainer (Carl) was excellent. His great real-life experience in engineering and design really shines through, combined with a great personality for this type of course.
