Draftsman Training

Drafting courses by Penn Foster's Workforce Development provide students with the expert training to graduate as professional, entry-level Detailers, General Drafters, Detail Drafters, and Layout Drafters. A professional draftsman renders engineered and architectural concepts into technical drawings. Analytic skills and sketching abilities are critical to the production of precise specifications for engineers, architects, manufacturers, and real estate developers.

Drafting students will specialize in geometrical, mechanical and projection drawings and technical plans, including computer-aided drafting and design to become CAD drafting professionals. For example, trainees learn to use drawing software and measurement tools to draw detailed mechanical power transmission parts and systems, as well as sheet metal industrial applications. The drafting program will equip students with mechanical drafting and applied technology skills developed by engaging in a drafting class such as Principles of Mechanics, Physics, Precision Measuring Instruments, and Mechanical Testing of Materials.
