Vectorworks Landmark training — Curriculum

  • “The diploma is much more than a distance learning course… Its use of online technology is an improvement on traditional classroom teaching.”

    Ben Norris

Part 1:
Setting up your workspace

You learn how to set up your preferences and manage Vectorworks settings. There’s an introduction to screens and pallets, page size grids, auto classing and templates.

Basic drawing techniques

Vectorworks has developed drawing tools specifically for you as a professional landscape designer.

In this module, you’ll learn how to master the basics — from drawing shapes, resizing, changing and moving objects to fills and line weights, hatches and gradients.

  • “I have learnt so much more than I anticipated - not just the design process but a complete professional training. I now feel confident and ambitious to be one of the best!”

    Gill German, MSGD
