Learning the Universal Language of Industry

To be a certified drafter, you’ll need to learn what’s called the “universal language of industry.” The words and phrases used in drafting are referred to as the universal language of industry because they’re precise terms used to relay exacting ideas between different parties.

Symbols are also part of the universal language of industry. A drafter must know what every symbol stands for because each one represents the shape, size, finish, material, fabrication, and/or assembly of a certain deliverable.

The ability to create, understand, and interpret drawings are essential skills that drafters must have to succeed. Drawings are the basis for constructing things, after all.

By being well-versed in the universal language of industry, you’ll be prepared to perform as a competent certified drafter who’s fluent in the language necessary to communicate aptly with your peers with spoken words and using manual or CADD-generated, detailed drawings.
