Course Description

Have you been looking for the best tool to design simple electronics printed circuit boards for free? Even more so, have you tried learning Altium Designer, but it was too hard to learn without help? Wouldn't it be great if there were short videos, created by experienced users, with tutorials on PCB and schematic design using Altium Designer software?

If you are looking for an in-depth walkthrough of the PCB design process and an introduction on how to use Altium Designer, look no further. In this course, you will use Altium Designer to test out and learn the most important features of Altium Designer and PCB Design manufacturing rules.

What will you learn?

This course is a first of its kind in which you will learn from start to finish on how to design your very own custom Printed Circuit Board (PCB). This course will help you to improve your PCB design skills which will help you to get started freelancing or to get a job in PCB design with Altium Designer being one of the top PCB design tools used around the world.


We assume no prior knowledge in PCB Designing is necessary, however basic knowledge of electronic components is helpful. Highly recommended for a hobbyist, electronic enthusiast and those who want to build their career in core field can sign-up this course.
