Please help! I,m still trying to find a course in London to get my C&G in autocad. I would like to do it in a short amount of time or if it is possible to just sit the tests without having to do the whole course.
If anybody has any information I would be very happy to hear from you!

The problem with C&G is that you have to do a final exam at the end, if you went for ONC (NVQ), you do assesments as you progress, this may be done with distance learning from virtually any technical college.

I was the same as you before,was determined to complete the course as quick as I could and then put it into practise.I even found courses that were 6 wks long,you study at weeekends for about 6hrs on a saturday then take a course at the end(think it was from a Babel college in central London).Although Id be trained at a ridiculous speed, the course as far as I remember wasn't C&G approved,so my future employees might discredit my acheivments!The course was also twice the price and far less hours of training as the standard C&G.I dont regret completing the c&g via the long route,its far easier to get help one on one,face to face.You also get instant feedback if youve done something wrong and wont end up going off track,as your tutor can see your work there and then. I'll see if I can dig you out some stuff from some of those get CAD trained in a few weeks courses

Thanks guys! I was wondering,when you say distance learning, does that mean that I can do it at home?.
With my employment at the moment I work some cazy hours and trying to attend a course each week is really out of the question thats why I would like to complete my C&G in a small amount of time or even better at home!

Yeh have found that college that does a short course and its a C&G one too now.Not sure wether its distance learning though.Thirty hours isnt bad though for a quick course in your case.If you do find any distance learning courses,I wouldn't mind havinf a loook myself.Heres the link you need:
Also just stumbled across another website that offers distant learning C&G CAD. :D

I'll have a word with my tutor today at college, I know he's got a guy doing a course from an oilrig in the North Sea, so distance learning he is!

Here is a link to the college I am currently attending www.lauder.ac.uk
Look for the Babckock Lauder Technology link for the technical courses. Lauder is based in Dunfermline, Fife and I've spoken to my Tutor who has given me his works email address, if anyone wants to contact him directly for course details and funding etc. Let me know if you want it and I'll PM it on.
