Dusko Lapcevic, Lecturer and Commercial CAD Manager (Narrator): My name is Dusko Lapcevic, and my original degree was engineering, and I worked as an engineer for about seven years and decided I wanted to do design. My first foray was to do a short course, so I did

Narrator: Teaching intro short courses is the best of teaching. You have students who are keen, who are only there because they want to learn.

Narrator: I think every teacher we use in the short courses is there because they're keen on imparting this passion they have with the software.
