FAQ

What is included in the live training fee? 

  • 1 or 2 days of live training with Tammy in a small class size. (Lunch included on Day 1.)
  • 2D furnishing and appliance template for drawing floor plans.
  • LayOut lighting plan template.
  • Access to any of the online courses for life after the conclusion of the training. 
  • 2 hours of post training tutoring, done via screen share with Tammy. 

Do I need any prior SketchUp experience? 

This class is for beginners and intermediate users. No prior experience is required. However, I do ask designers to take the Free online intro course before attending. (10 minutes long.)

How many designers will be in the training?

Classes are kept small with a limit of 6-7 designers to maximize the value of our time together. 

What will we cover on the day of? 

We will use a single case study throughout the training. Taking the project from beginning to end. Developing a workflow for on-boarding, schematic design, final design, documentation and presentation. You may put your own spin on the design, but the main point of the training is to learn the tools for drawing and gaining an effective and efficient workflow. See schedules below.
