Drafting Development Program

As part of our commitment to Shareholder Development, NANA/Colt Engineering has established a Drafting Development Program offering the opportunity for shareholders to learn basic AutoCAD. Through an application and selection process, three to five shareholders or direct relatives of shareholders per session are chosen and trained in basic AutoCAD user knowledge enabling them to produce entry-level CAD drawings.

 The program is offered approximately twice a year and lasts  three  weeks. The first week is allocated to classroom instruction and the  remaining two weeks consist of actual on the job training in a working  environment. A select team of professionals specializing in Business  Development, Engineering, Shareholder Initiatives and Human  Resources manages the Program. Classes are taught by a certified  CAD instructor with over eleven years experience. Interns are matched  with their own mentor during the on the job training segment of the  program. Those completing the program will receive a Certificate of  Completion from NANA/Colt Engineering.
