enseignant, ingénieur, passionné

Je suis passionné de technologie et d'enseignement. J'enseigne le dessin industriel et surtout le logiciel AutoCAD depuis près de 10 ans. J'ai enseigné en classe dans des Centre de formation professionnelle, Cégep et directement en entreprise.

Bachelier en génie mécanique de l'Université de Sherbrooke et en enseignement de l'Université Laval, j'ai décidé d'unir mes deux formations pour créer des cours de technologie en ligne. Je commence avec un premier cours d'AutoCAD destiné aux débutants. Par la suite, suivront des cours intermédiaires et avancés sur ce même logiciel et d'autres cours sur le logiciel Solidworks.

Au plaisir de travailler ensemble bientôt.
