PCB Circuit Design with Altium Training Course

Last updated

Course Code



21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)


  • An understanding of electronics


PCB (Printed Circuit Board) Circuit Design refers to the process of designing, etching, and printing circuits on a signal boards layout.  Altium Designer is a freely available desktop application for designing PCBs.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use the Altium software to create PCB circuit boards. The course starts by examining a set of existing schematics, then drawing out an original circuit in Altium. The training steps through process for designing and manufacturing the circuit board.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Create a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) from any schematic
  • Create schematics and design circuit boards using Altium
  • Print and etch a physical circuit board
  • Export the industry-standard files for sending to a large-scale manufacturer


  • Engineers
  • Technicians

Format of the Course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
