    Not sure this is really the best place to get AutoCAD assistance, mate!

    That being said, if you actually have a legal copy of AutoCAD, you should use Autodesk's own offerings which are free.

    Westwood College also offers a dedicated associates degree program in the subject

    Then there are some secondary and tertiary channels for e-learning that a quick google search turned up 10s of them.

  • I am not sure on Autocad but a training provider may help you. I know you are concerned with funds but doesn't hurt to get info on the subject.

  • Use Monster or any other job providing web site and find a job you would like to do.  Read the requirements for that position.  You should be able to find a book on just about any topic.  A few years back, I wanted to get my MCAD to help target myself for better positions.  I used the Microsoft Exam series to prep for my MCAD.  It was a much cheaper alternative to formalized training.  I don't know anything about AutoCad, but if you were to pursue Microsoft Technology, there are several E-Learning courses that are very affordable.  Some even for free.

    Just my .02.  Good luck on your career.
