In this course, you will learn the functions of different plan views, elevations, sections, details and schedules presented on Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) drawings as well as dimensions, basic design concepts, specifications and key terminology relevant to interpreting graphical and written construction information.
