About Us

OakCAD launched in 1993 as a CAD Bureau, expanded into selling MicroStation and AutoCAD CAD systems, together with CAD hardware. Since then we have developed a comprehensive range of engineering and CAD training courses, which we deliver on our clients' premises or provide as distance learning courses..

Engineering training is now our major training product and we have a comprehensive range of industrial specific engineering and maintenance training courses, most of which are accredited and certificated by EAL

OakCAD took over the National College of Technology (NCT) in 2000.

In 2002 OakCAD was a finalist in the prestigious National Training Awards programme, rewarding us for our involvement in a four year training and upskilling programme for a multi-national pharmaceutical company. During this period over 100 maintenance engineers attended 15 different training courses.

In recent years we have worked with a number of multi-national companies to develop training courses tailored to their specific requirements. As part of this operation we were engaged by a major distance learning provider based in London, to produce over 30 electrical training units for their new flexible learning programme. We have also acted as their consultants in the development of their practical training facilities at four sites across the UK. More recently we have supported the apprentice training programme for a large manufacturing company based in the Midlands.

In 2018 OakCAD and NCT were combined to form OakCAD NCT, managed through NCT Online Limited.

Our main operational offices are located in Bletchley, Milton Keynes and Soham.


OakCAD NCT has a strong commitment to its clients, some of which we have supported for over 20 years, and our Company Values endorse this commitment:
