I completed HVAC design course from CADD DUBAI- UIT Group. Classes were conducted by Mr.Ullas Kumar. My learning experience with Mr. Ullas was fabulous and during the course I could experience the profoundness of his technical knowledge and experience.

There are two ways to teach can either teach because it is your work or you can make your student fall in love with the subject. And with an instructor like Anju and Roshna I loved learning AutoCAD. I would recommend CADD INTERNATIONAL dubai to anyone who wants to learn design software because you get the ultimate learning experience from here. And the place was just wonderful . Worth every penny !! Keep up the great work !!.
