Delgado Community College offers both certificate and associate degree programs in CADD drafting.
CADD drafters prepare blueprints and technical drawings for use by engineers, architect and construction companies. These drawings are used to build commercial and residential buildings, oil and gas pipelines and  manufactured products. The drawings of a CADD drafter shows the technical details of the products and structures, specifying dimensions, materials to be used, and procedures and processes to be followed.

Due to the recent hurricane the demand for talented CADD drafters who are detail oriented and appreciate the importance of good design has more then tripled. Drafters in Louisiana can earn from $20 per hour and higher.

Upon completion of either of Delgado's drafting programs, you'll be ready to move into the workforce with the knowledge and understanding of the most current computer-aided drafting (CADD) software being used in the industry.
