The Virtual Design & Construction Institute (VDCI; formerly known as cadteacher) was founded in 1997 by Al Whitley, MBA, AIA, to “teach architects, engineers and contractors in San Diego how to most effectively and appropriately use AutoCAD in their offices.” VDCI has grown significantly over the years — now offering high quality onsite and online educational training options for a variety of CAD and BIM programs.
In 2016, VDCI became the first and only nationally accredited institution of its kind in North America. While VDCI was gaining this impressive recognition as an institution, their website wasn’t quite keeping up.
PINT built VDCI a fresh, mobile-optimized, secure site using the Magento 2 ecommerce platform that has boosted enrollment by 15-20% and specifically increased the enrollment of course bundles (as opposed to single courses). The new VDCI site accurately reflects the prestige of the institution while making it easy for new and returning students to find relevant information and enroll in courses.
