Naturally, there are going to be some other educational requirements for these types of architecture jobs. If you wish to start a drafting career, first of all you will indeed need a full knowledge of CAD. Right now we're going to tell you that CAD can be exceptionally hard to learn. It's not impossible, but it will take a lot of dedication, just like any other application made by Autodesk.
You will also need to have good drawing skills, which could involve a background in art. You will need to gain a college education before even thinking about applying for these types of architecture jobs, and that will involve a trip to your local college to see what sort of courses they offer. Typically, you will not be able to do distance learning with this type of degree because of the hands on work that will be involved. For this reason you will need to make sure that you are completely dedicated to earning this education and working your way to the top.
The biggest problem with choosing these types of planner jobs is the overall job outlook. Right now it's looking like it will slow down quite a bit. There will be planner jobs available for new graduates, but they will only be available in the event the previous planner dies or simply retires. If this is your lifelong dream, then make sure you remember why you're doing it, because it may be a long time before you get into any actual architecture jobs.
The salary isn't too hot either. You will likely make around $40,000 per year in these types of architect jobs. With the job outlook and the salary, this is definitely a job you only want to do if you're truly dedicated to it, otherwise you'll find that it's just not worth it.
For those that find it is their cup of tea however, be ready for a wild right through the educational system as you learn the ins and outs of CAD, and even learn to pull out the old pencil and paper to draw a bit. You will also need to learn various math and applied sciences to advance your education in the direction that you need it to go.
When you do finish your education, you will need to have a perfect resume. Remember, there are tons of other graduates out there looking for architect jobs of this nature, so make sure you are the one that stands out! So long as you do that, you'll find that your job search is significantly easier, even if you have to settle for an apprenticeship at first. Study hard, work hard, and make sure that you get the job you've always wanted!
