Course description

Introduction to SketchUp - Live Online Training

SketchUp - 2-day introductory Online SketchUp course for beginners in all industries. Live Online Training lets you participate in a real course from your place of work or home.

This SketchUp course provides beginners with a comprehensive introduction to the SketchUp software, giving delegates all of the skills needed to produce high quality 3D models.

Hands-on exercises are used to create 3D models and visualisations and to provide candidates with thorough understanding of the principal SketchUp drawing commands and techniques. These techniques can be applied across a broad spectrum of industries.

SketchUp courses are hosted by experts in 3D design, CGI and the production of visualisations and rendered images. They have been providing training in SketchUp and similar applications to industry for 20+ years.

Armada's approach to Live Online Training:

When you attend Live Online Training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time.
You can:

  • See and hear our trainer and other delegates participating in the training.
  • Allow our trainer and the other delegates to see 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 as our classroom-based courses.
  • It will be presented by the same certified trainers.
  • 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 on the topic you’re being trained in, assisted by our trainer. If you’re learning to use an application and 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 be entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

All you need is an internet-connected computer. The setup is simple, but if there’s anything you’re not sure about we’re here to help.

Self-funding participants can spread the cost over 12 months, interest-free.
