We recently used Benchmarq Training to train some of our new employees on AutoCAD. They all came back with a much better understanding of AutoCAD and were very happy with the trainer. I will definitely be sending more of our employees to get trained up on AutoCAD! The training facility is also really convenient and easy to get to. Thank you
