Blueprint Reading Fundamentals for Construction

This online learning course was developed by the Toronto Construction Association (TCA)/The Construction Institute of Canada (TCIC) for the construction industry.

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. The knowledge you gain will help you confidently interpret construction drawings to ensure an accurate and efficient completion of your projects.
