Elecworks Foundation Training Course



This course teaches the production of electrical Schematic drawings, Single Line drawings, Terminal Plan drawings, Bill of Materials in various formats, Connection List reports and other associated documentation.

During the course, we will create at least one new project from a blank starting point and include within this project the generation of new symbol elements.

The purpose is for the delegate to acquire the knowledge to create an electrical scheme using the tools and objects provide within Elecworks Core.

This is a hands-on practical course; you will have your own computer and will be provided with associated documents to take away.

Previous basic knowledge and experience in working with a computer (mouse, keyboard etc).

A very enjoyable course taught by a very knowledgeable instructor. Learned a lot and the course was delivered at a good pace for our group.




I found your trainer to be very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and above all, an extremely calm and patient person.

I thought that I would take some time out to drop you a brief line and to thank you for sending such an excellent trainer. I found your trainer to be very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and above all, an extremely calm and patient person.

Our group from Trillium completed our three day essentials CAD training course with Cadline yesterday.

I did do some training in CAD when I was at University, but as a straggler then, I did not get the level of support and help I needed from the lecturer who took that course. Consequently, I found that using CAD was very daunting, a stressor and to be avoided at all costs.

Not now though !!

Your trainer is an excellent ambassador for Cadline. I would like him to have recognition for his calm, patient manner, his helpfulness and most of all, for giving me the nudge I needed to overcome my CAD fears...

Well done to you all and thank you once again.
