What Qualifications Should a Draftsman Have?
It varies from state to state but courses in mathematics, science, computer technology, design, computer graphics, and where available, drafting, are required. Professionals in the trade are encouraged to keep up-to-date with changes and additions to their field. Therefore, they seek further education and training at technical institutes, community colleges, four-year colleges or universities, and through online courses, as well as continuing education in certified programs.
Again, this differs from state to state but in Florida licensing is not required of drafters. As a resut, this is often referred to as an unregulated profession, creating an unfavorable impression that draftsmen are not qualified to produce the same quality of work as an architect or engineer and shouldn't be trusted to have your home properly constructed. Read on to find out why this is the case.
