Where are you from? my father went back for 2 semesters (one year) and obtained his draftsman cert, just for the sake of his job. he really didn't need it, just the updated training.Originally Posted by amarlls
and yes, i know around my part of town (Dallas, TX) and surrounding areas, there's lots of 2 year degree plans, 4 semesters long. that's it.... most dont even require any pre-testing or anything. if you can work part time and do full time hours at a community college, you should be able to bust out an associates degree in notime. go to your local college and pick up a degree plan, or get online or something. you can call and talk to counselors as well, they'll direct you even more efficiently.
80% of the courses are using programs, such as AutoCAD. not a whole lot of core classes, because it's a specific degree plan. and i know my college allowed me to do almost all my computer classes online, which is nice because you usually get the entire course outline up front, with due dates. so, if you're quick.... you can kock out a whole semester class in a week.
hope this helps.
