Our certificate in drafting is handy for those wanting entry level positions in the architectural field. If you’re interested in receiving a drafting certificate, you can readily receive it here at House Plan Drafting because we offer training in the skill set that will help you build a career in architectural drafting. This program generally takes 2 to 3 months to complete (recommended), depending on you and your willingness to learn! However, you do have 1 year from enrollment to finish.

    Hi,

    I am looking for a house plan drawing course to do online and am interested in doing this course.

    Does the qualification at the end of this course enable me to legally draw house plans in Australia ?

      Gaynor, I’ve yet to find any Australian law that says you’re prohibited from drawing house plans in Australia. There may be a limit on the square footage you’ll be allowed to draw without an engineers review in your particular municipality, but that’s no different than here in the US.

      Your certificate from us however, would show your local building inspector that you have had formal training in residential architecture, which is a big plus for your plans receiving approval.

    Tim, I enrolled in the courses 2 months ago and just would like to say, well done sir. Most all that I know was self taught and I had tried to learn residential drafting on my own using text books. I just was missing one element. That element was the methodology you used to create these courses.

    Instead of giving me a broad spectrum of information, your studies took me step by step, and as you know, I had very few questions. Bravo for your efforts. I plan to move on to the site plan course shortly. I’m sure it will be as good or even better an experience.

    Thank you

      Orlando,
      As I just told someone in an email just a few minutes ago: “The courses are worth a whole lot more than the $50, but we want everyone who is willing to learn to afford it. As you probably read from my website, the proceeds are used for our ministry at http://parsonscorner.org and http://parsonscorner.org/rolmc. It is a high quality set of courses in my humble opinion.”
