Learn to interpret these essential documents

In many industries, a blueprint serves as the map to a successful project. A proper build relies on a solid plan, and the details contained within blueprints can be small and complex. Without an eye trained to identify and understand those details, costly mistakes could be made.

In our Blueprint Reading course, you will learn about tolerances, dimensions, basic design concepts and key terminology relevant to interpreting blueprints. The knowledge you gain will help you confidently interpret blueprints to ensure the accurate and efficient completion of projects. It will also give your employer confidence in your ability to follow a plan and do the job correctly.

Blueprints are commonly used in many building and construction fields such as architecture, plumbing, electrical and metal work. Blueprint reading can also be a valuable skill for home renovation and landscaping professionals.
