Introducing SketchUp for Beginners Digital Course with One-on-one Live Training

Learn SketchUp Pro from an Interior Designer

GAI's Behind the Design is excited to launch our new SketchUp for Beginners Course. Filled with easy-to-follow instructional videos, this course is ideal for interior designers or decorators interested in learning how to use SketchUp to build 3D models that sell their design ideas.

The course includes 6 modules: Introduction to SketchUp Pro, Basic Drawing in 2D, Moving from 2D to 3D, Organizing and Viewing, All About Materials, and Sharing your Model. In addition, each module has 6 to 8 videos walking through different aspects of SketchUp and bonus videos to expand your learning.

This course is a bit different than your traditional digital course. With your subscription, you will receive two 30-minute live training sessions with one of our SketchUp experts. The live training sessions are customized to your specific questions and needs and are intended to boost your learning beyond the video tutorials.

Who should attend…

This program is ideal for interior designers looking to expand their skills in 3D modeling. After this course, you will be on your way to creating 3D models using SketchUp that will enhance your services and help you sell to clients.

How the course is structured…

Upon entering the course, you will start at the Course Curriculum page, outlining each module’s modules and videos. Each module starts with a welcome message covering what to expect in the module. Modules have a minimum of 8 videos, plus several bonus videos. You will also find a downloadable SketchUp file for following along with the video.

Additional resources are available with each module and highlighted below the videos. As you finish a video, simply select “Next Lesson.” If you want to rewatch a video or jump ahead, you can do that through the Course Curriculum page.

As part of your subscription, you will receive two 30-minute live sessions with a SketchUp Pro. We suggest waiting until after Module 3 to schedule the first session. Then, after Module 6, you can schedule your second session. These sessions are conducted via Zoom. Once you schedule a time, you will receive an email with a Zoom link, along with preparation guidelines.

We want to make sure you get the most out of your course. As you move through the lessons, you will find many opportunities to practice what you have learned and to reach out to our SketchUp experts with questions.
