Students will learn how to read and interpret the different types of standard symbols and abbreviations found on these drawings. This session will benefit anyone entering or already in the trades, as it will teach them to recognize plans, elevations, and sectional views, identify a view by its placement on a drawing, list what working drawings include, and interpret dimensions marked on piping drawings.
