Autocad P&ID

Course Overview

AutoCAD P&ID is a drafting program that helps you to create P&ID drawings easily and with a minimum of training. AutoCAD P&ID enables productivity gains of up to 60% compared to 2D drafting methodologies, but like most modern software, it pays great dividends to ensure you build a solid foundation of knowledge that you can further enhance to get the most out of the software as you become more practised and familiar with the core functionality.  A P&ID (Piping and Instrumentation Diagram) displays the connections between the equipments of a process and the instrumentation controlling the process. A P&ID is created using standard symbols.

Course Objectives:

The primary objective of this 4 day AutoCAD P&ID training course is for the student to learn the essential areas of AutoCAD P&ID and through hands on exercises, gain competence with the use of AutoCAD P&ID and its abilities. The class is intended for users who have a need for generating Piping and Instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) or Process Flow diagrams (PFD). This class can be taken by either draftsmen or process engineers who have the need to quickly draw a P&ID or PFD.After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Create simplified steel structures.
  • Create and place equipment
  • Connect equipment with pipe lines.
  • Add inline components like valves, reducers and pipe fittings.
  • Tag and annotate the piping and inline components.
  • Create isometric drawings
  • Create orthographic drawings
  • Import and export data to Microsoft Excel.
  • Validate the generated 3D Piping Design.


Before using this courseware, the student should be able to understand and know how to use the AutoCAD 2D and 3D environment. In-depth knowledge of Piping Design is not required but will be helpful. It is recommended that the student have a working knowledge of Microsoft® Windows® 7 or Windows 10
